The Mini Mixer is a small mixer that combine the motions of an orbital shaker and a rocker to produce a three dimensional action. This action provides thorough yet gentle mixing without foaming. A dimpled mat on the platform surface holds tubes firmly in place. The mat will hold as many as 60x1.5ml tubes; 30 paediatric blood tubes (3ml); 21 standard blood tubes (7ml); 17x15ml tubes or 9x50ml tubes. The Mini Mixer has a pitch and speed that produces the perfect motion for processing western blots and staining gels. The tilt angle is large. May be used in temperature controlled environments. Gyratory action provides gentle; thorough mixing. Designed for processing blots and staining gels. Optimal fixed speed and pitch. Hinged lid and positive catch.
