Mixers, Rockers or Shakers

Laboratory agitators (Shakers), also known as mixers, are laboratory products that are used, in the chemistry and biology sectors, to mix liquids and prepare solutions and suspensions. These equipment create a movement between liquids or between liquids and solids in order to achieve mixing, suspension, dispersion, homogenization, heat transfer, etc. At present, agitation systems (agitators) are used in all laboratories, whether chemistry, biology, among others.

The different models of agitators, rockers and rotators are designed to house tubes, microplates, flasks for cell cultures, jars or similar containers. The miniagitators are small and save space; Other agitators, rockers and rotators are the size of a standard table, although some are independent and stackable. Other models are resistant to moisture or CO2 and are designed specifically for operation within refrigerators, incubators or other controlled closed containers. Some agitators can be heated, incubated or refrigerated by themselves, and are supplied with a cover to control their own temperature and humidity.

What is a laboratory Vortex?

A Vortex agitator is a simple device commonly used in laboratories to mix small liquid vials. It consists of an electric motor with a vertically oriented drive shaft and attached to a slightly mounted rubber piece mounted.

As the engine is ignited, the rubber piece rapidly ranges in a circular motion. When a test tube or other suitable container is pressed inside the rubber cup, the movement is transmitted to the inside of the liquid and a vortex is created. Most vortex mixers are designed with 2 or 4-course formats, have variable speed settings between 100 and 3,200 rpm and can be adjusted to operate continuously or to function only when pressure is applied down to the rubber part.

What is the function of a vortex in a laboratory

It consists of an electric motor with the drive shaft oriented vertically and connected to a cup-shaped piece of rubber mounted slightly off-center. The rubber part motor oscillates rapidly in a circular motion. When a test tube or other suitable container is pressed into the rubber cup (or its edge touched), the movement is transmitted to the liquid inside and a vortex is created. Most vortex mixers have a variable speed setting and can be set to run continuously, or to run only when downward pressure is applied to the rubber part.

As the engine is running, the rubber piece swings rapidly in a circular motion. When a test tube or other suitable container is pressed into the rubber cup, the movement is transmitted into the liquid and a vortex is created.

The term β€œlaboratory shakers”

Encompasses among others magnetic stirrers, vertical stirrers, hand stirrers and other stirring systems. Automatic shakers have at least two components, a propulsion system and a rod. The propulsion system or engine is responsible for transmitting the movement to the rod and this in turn, is the piece that transmits the movement of the engine to the medium.

There are several rods for laboratory shakers. Only the correct combination between the propulsion system and the rod allows optimal development of laboratory shakers. The rods generate different flows in the medium due to their different types of construction and must take into account the different possibilities of the propulsion system. There are rods such as flat blade stirrers, crescent stirrers, propeller stirrers, turbine stirrers, anchor stirrers and other shapes.

Hotplates and Hotplate Stirrers

Magnetic stirrers are often used in chemistry and biology. They are preferred over gear-driven motorized stirrers because they are quieter, more efficient, and have no moving external parts to break or wear out (other than the simple bar magnet itself). Because of its small size, a stirring bar is more easily cleaned and sterilized than other stirring devices.
