Context:

Andrew Bonham, a postdoctoral scholar at UCSB and co-first author of the study, explained that many labs have invented ways to read transcription factors; however, this team's approach is very quick and convenient. "In most labs, researchers spend hours extracting the proteins from cells before analyzing them," said Bonham. "With the new sensors, we just mash the cells up, put the sensors in, and measure the level of fluorescence of the sample."

@oristarA,
no, it means "mash" as in smash or pulverize.

@oristarA,
mash up also refers to mixing things up

previously they analyzed the proteins after removing them from the cells

now they smash/mash/pulverize the cells - and are doing an analysis of the whole mix (the cells including the proteins)
