The Mini Twist 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. The pitch and speed of the Mini Twister are fixed. 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 tilt angle is large. May be used in temperature controlled environments. Gyratory action provides gentle; thorough mixing. Perfect for centrifuge and blood tubes. Optimal fixed speed and pitch.
