Microplate Vortex Mixers are designed specifically for continuous duty throughout the speed range. Analog variable speed models or microprocessor-controlled digital models offer exact speed control for applications that demand repeatable results. The high-speed and small orbit of these mixers make them optimal for effectively mixing microplates. Cup head for mixing single tubes is also included.

  • Microplate Adapter’s Unique Mode of Attachment Allows for Secure Mixing
  • Touchpad Control & Independent LED Displays for Speed/Time on Digital Models
  • Variable Speed Analog Model Offers an Economical Alternative to Digital Model

Operating Conditions: Unit can be run in conditions from 4 to 40°C (39 to 104°F), 20% to 85% relative humidity, non-condensing.

Includes: Mixer includes a cup head, single microplate holder, and a 92" (234cm) detachable, 3-wire cord and specified plug.

Available in two models: Analog and Digital.

Analog Microplate Vortex Mixers

The OHAUS Analog Microplate Vortex Mixer is a variable speed analog mixer that is designed for continuous duty. The high speed and small orbit is optimal for effectively mixing microplates. Choose from two modes of operation: “Touch” mode which activates mixing when cup head is depressed, or “On” mode when using the microplate attachments for continuous operation.

Digital Microplate Vortex Mixers

The OHAUS Digital Microplate Vortex Mixer is ideal for applications that demand repeatable results. Mixer features touchpad controls and LED displays for accurate speed (rpm) and time (minutes and seconds) results. Microprocessor control maintains set speed for strong, consistent mixing action. Timer will display elapsed time or, when programmed to a user defined time limit, the unit will shut off when time reaches zero. Choose from two modes of operation: “Touch” mode which activates mixing when cup head is depressed, or “On” mode when using the microplate attachments for continuous operation.
