Basic, Standard, Advanced & Pulsing Vortex Mixers

Vortex Mixers have two modes of operation; continuous mode when using accessory attachments or touch mode which activates mixing when depressing the cup head.  Basic, Fixed-Speed Vortex Mixers are one-touch units that start mixing when the cup head is pressed down.  Standard Analog Vortex Mixer control allows low rpm startup for gentle shaking or high-speed mixing for vigorous vortexing of samples. Advanced Digital Vortex Mixers are ideal for applications that demand repeatable results. Microprocessor control maintains set speed for strong, consistent mixing action. Pulsing Vortex Mixers’ unique pulsing action reduces heat generation while providing more effective mixing and disruption.
