The is designed for mechanical and chemical cell lysis, mixing suspensions, and general sample agitation. This vortex mixer gives a distinctly different motion than shaking a sample. With vortexing, greater shearing forces are placed on materials in the bottom of a tube, thus promoting either disruption or solubility. is the equipment to provide that extra degree of mixing. However, a single system can accommodate full rack of tubes or micro well-plate, vials or cylinder as opposed to single tube vortexers.
