If a biochemical analysis of mitochondria has to be done, the best procedure would be

(1) select cells which have a larger number of mitochondria

(2) plasmolyse the cell and filter out the mixture and take the debris

(3) grind the cells and filter out the mixture and take the debris

(4) subject the cell to cell fractionation (centrifuge) and obtain mitochondria
