The VWR Heavy Duty vortex mixer is an analog mixer that features a heavy-duty design and efficient motor that permits continuous duty operation and the ability to handle accessory components over the entire speed range. This thing is low-profile, bottom heavy, and almost immovable – it’s like having a tiny sumo wrestler sitting on your lab bench.

Vortex mixers are commonly used in laboratories to mix small liquid volumes for cell disruption or homogenization. The analog or digital vortex mixers precisely control the operational speed and time to achieve reproducible results. Named after the vortex created when pressure is applied to a rubber cup (attached to motor via a drive shaft) by a test tube or vial containing a liquid, these mixers can be set to run continuously at varying speeds.
All of the equipment we sell is used and reconditioned. Our technicians test all equipment to confirm that it operates properly and to the manufacturer’s specifications. While we can’t test for a specific analytical application, we will do our best to simulate the conditions under which the equipment will be run. If you have particular testing requirements or requests please let us know and we’ll work with you to make sure these requirements are addressed during testing.
