Vacuole product of phagocytosis.

Following this endocytosis mechanism the engulfed material is found in the lumen of an endomembrane component known as a phagosome or food vacuole. The phagosome then fuses with a lysosome, forming a phagolysosome within which, ideally, digestion of the phagocytized material takes place.
