Vortex mixers and their benefits

  • A laboratory has several tasks and hence have various devices for different applications.
  • One of the common devices found in a laboratory is the Vortex mixer. A Vortex mixer is capable of mixing small vials of liquid. The task is not very hard and hence the device is quite as simple one too.
  • The device has an electric motor with a drive shaft that is vertically oriented and also attached to a cupped rubber piece mounted slightly off centre. The motor drives the rubber piece at the top in a circular motion and thus has results.
  • The way it works is a test tube is inserted into the rubber piece and thus it rotates. It has many speed options for different purpose.

Vortex Mixers from Neuation:

  • Neuation is poplar for next generation laboratory equipment and is an ISO 13485:2003 certified laboratory equipment manufacturer.
  • Their products are manufactured in India and are of International Standard besides which they are also follow the International CE standards.
  • Besides many other laboratory equipment, Neuation also manufactures the mini vortex mixers. These are tiny vortex mixers which are equipped with long lasting BLDC motors and deliver more than enough RPM for a quick mixing with an orbital diameter of 4.5 mm.
  • It can be activated by a single press and is smartly designed and hence has an enhanced life.

The two vortex mixers from Neuation are described below:
