The SCI-M Microplate Mixer is ideal for mixing/shaking 96 well microplates. The mixer's high speed and small orbit combine to offer true vortexing action in each well of the microplate for complete and uniform mixing.
* This is the shaking speed range specified by the manufacturer, Scilogex. The actual minimum speed at which shaking will occur is more likely around 200 rpm, but is not specified by Scilogex. This device is not suitable for low-speed shaking.

Does the MX-M Microplate Mixer accept other styles of microplates?
Yes. Any plates that have the same size / shape as 96-well plates (384-well plates, 1586-well plates, 24-well plates, etc.) can be used.
Does the MX-M accept deep well microplates? Does it accept unskirted or semi-skirted plates?
The MX-M does accept deep well plates.
It has not been tested with semi-skirted microplates.
Unskirted plates would not be suitable for use with the MX-M microplate mixer.
I need to achieve a specific RPM. Is this possible with the Scilogex MX-M Microplate Mixer?
MX-M Microplate Mixer does not have digital speed controls and the analog knob does not have demarcations denoting specific speeds. If you need a microplate mixer that can be set to a specific RPM, we recommend getting one with digital controls. The Ohaus Microplate Vortex Mixer is a cost-effective digital option.435 Scilogex 2015-09-06
