VELP WIZARD IR Infrared Vortex Mixer

Category Vortexers
Manufacturer VELP Scientifica
Country of manufacture Italy

The WIZARD represents a technological innovation in the evolutionary process of vortex mixers. Optical technology provides an innovative operating mode that is absolutely unique on the laboratory mixer market. 

Thanks to the revolutionary IR sensor mode, an infrared system (IR) detects the presence of the test tube and the instrument automatically starts vibrating! 

The Wizard features a highly innovative and ergonomic design which, combined with the special materials used, ensures high stability and increased user comfort.

The instrument offers two operating modes as well as the possibility to regulate the speed of vibration: 

  • Sensor mode - an infrared system automatically activates the vortex mixer so the laboratory technician does not have to apply any pressure! 
  • Continuous mode - continuous operating mode that can be used with a wide range of accessories. 

Electronic speed regulation: from 0 to 3000 rpm
Operating modes: continuous, IR sensor
