Vertical Rotating Mixer

Key Features:

  1. Rotating Platform:
    • Vertical Rotation: The mixer rotates tubes or containers in a vertical position, providing gentle and consistent mixing.
  2. Adjustable Rotation Speed:
    • Variable Speed Control: Vertical Rotating Mixers typically offer adjustable rotation speeds to accommodate different sample types and mixing requirements.
  3. Interchangeable Platforms:
    • Platform Options: Some models come with interchangeable platforms or attachments to accommodate tubes of various sizes, including microcentrifuge tubes, test tubes, and bottles.
  4. Hands-Free Operation:
    • Securable Attachments: Attachments or platforms can often be secured in place, allowing for hands-free operation during mixing.
  5. Continuous or Timed Operation:
    • Continuous Mixing: Mixers may operate continuously for ongoing mixing.
    • Timed Operation: Some models feature a timer for set durations of mixing.
  6. Compact and Benchtop Design:
    • Space-Saving: Vertical Rotating Mixers are designed to be compact and fit easily on laboratory benches.
  7. Sturdy Construction:
    • Durable Materials: Constructed with durable materials to withstand frequent use in laboratory environments.
  8. Quiet Operation:
    • Low Noise Level: Designed for quiet operation to maintain a conducive working environment.
  9. Safety Features:
    • Stable Base: Most models have a stable base to prevent tipping during operation.
    • Overload Protection: Some models include safety features to prevent overheating or overload.
  10. Directional Rotation (Optional):
    • Clockwise and Counterclockwise Rotation: Some mixers allow for directional control, enabling clockwise and counterclockwise rotation.
  11. Temperature Control (Optional):
    • Heated Platforms: Advanced models may include temperature-controlled platforms for applications requiring controlled temperatures during mixing.
  12. LED Display:
    • Operational Status: An LED display may be included to show the operational status of the Vertical Rotating Mixer, including rotation speed and time settings.
  13. Portable Models:
    • Battery Operation: Some models may operate on batteries, providing portability and flexibility for use in various locations.
  14. Application-Specific Models:
    • Blood Sample Mixing: Certain mixers are designed for gentle mixing of blood samples without causing hemolysis.
    • Hybridization Mixers: Specifically designed for nucleic acid hybridization applications.
  15. Compliance with Standards:
    • CE Marked: Vertical Rotating Mixers are manufactured to comply with relevant safety and quality standards, often indicated by a CE mark.

A Vertical Rotating Mixer, also known as a tube rotator or roller mixer, is a laboratory instrument designed for gentle mixing or rotation of tubes, vials, or other containers. It is commonly used in various life sciences and molecular biology applications, such as sample preparation, hybridization, and staining.
