Vacuole A cavity within the cytoplasm of a cell, surrounded by a single membrane and containing fluid, food, or metabolic waste
Lysosome an organelle in the cytoplasm of eukaryotic cells containing degradative enzymes enclosed in a membrane.
Peroxisome a cell organelle containing catalase, peroxidase, and other oxidative enzymes and performing essential metabolic functions, as the decomposition of fatty acids and hydrogen peroxide.
