    Aims: This study aims to apply the ultrasonic technique for extraction of saponin from Sapindus emarginatus fruit, to compare total saponin and antimicroorganism activity to conventional extraction method. Methods: In experimental process, effects of input power, time, and temperature on the % yield of extractions, amount of total saponin, and efficacy of antimicroorganism activity are considered. The obtained results from the optimized condition of ultrasonic technique are compared with those from the conventional extraction method. Results: The obtained % yield of extractions and amount of total saponin from the ultrasonic technique at 200 Watts, 30°C and 6 h, is closely to those from the conventional extraction method. For the efficacy of antimicroorganism activity, in addition, the Candida albicans, Epidermophyton floccosum, Microsporum gypseum, Trichophyton mentagrophytes, and Trichophyton rubrum are inhibited by the saponin from S. emarginatus fruit. Conclusion: The ultrasonic technique is the alternative of herbal extraction, especially some substance that degraded by thermal. In addition, the ultrasonic technique offers great potential in the extraction process to reduce extraction time, temperature, and low degradation of the herb.
