The variable speed control allows for gentle to vigorous mixing, making it suitable for a wide range of applications. The durable construction and secure platform make it ideal for use in a busy laboratory environment. With its user-friendly design and reliable performance, our Vortex Shaker is the perfect tool for ensuring accurate and consistent mixing of samples.
  • Applications

    • Homogenization of Samples: Vortex shakers are commonly used to mix biological samples, such as blood, urine, or tissue homogenates, to ensure uniformity and consistency in subsequent analyses.
    • Cell Culture: Vortex shakers are utilized in cell culture laboratories to resuspend cells that have settled to the bottom of culture flasks or tubes. This ensures even distribution of cells and nutrients throughout the culture medium.
    • Dissolving Solids: Vortex shakers can be used to dissolve solids, such as powders or pellets, in liquid solutions by agitating the mixture vigorously. This is particularly useful in preparing solutions for biochemical assays or chemical reactions.
    • Reactions: Vortex shakers are employed in various chemical reactions that require mixing of reagents. They are particularly useful for reactions that occur in small volumes or in microcentrifuge tubes.
    • Sample Preparation for Analysis: Vortex shakers are used to mix samples with reagents or solvents prior to analysis in techniques such as spectrophotometry, chromatography, or enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays (ELISA).
    • Emulsification: Vortex shakers can be used to create emulsions by mixing immiscible liquids together. This is commonly employed in the preparation of emulsions for cosmetic or pharmaceutical formulations.
    • DNA Extraction: In molecular biology laboratories, vortex shakers are used in DNA extraction protocols to ensure thorough mixing of samples with lysis buffers, facilitating the release of DNA from cells.
    • Staining and Dyeing: Vortex shakers are utilized in laboratories for mixing staining solutions with biological samples, such as cells or tissue sections, in procedures like histology or immunohistochemistry.
    • Sample Incubation: Vortex shakers with temperature-controlled platforms can be used for incubation of samples at specific temperatures while they are being mixed, facilitating various biochemical or microbiological reactions.
    • Preparation of Buffers and Media: Vortex shakers are employed in preparing buffers, media, and other solutions required in molecular biology, cell culture, and microbiology laboratories by ensuring thorough mixing of components.
