Benchmixer V2 Vortex Mixer

with reversible top
BenchMixer™ V2 Vortex Mixer
  • Reversible top platform, cup, or flat-dimpled surface
  • Powerful motor for INSTANT vortexing
  • Continuous or touch operation
  • Q Drive dynamic balancing system
  • Variable speed from 200 to 3200 rpm
  • Wide variety of accessories, for tubes up to 50 mL

The BenchMixer™ V2 utilizes a smooth and powerful mixing technology similar to the original BenchMixer™, with the advantage of a uniquely designed reversible rubber head that can be attached to the mixer in two orientations. For the vortexing of single tubes, the cupped surface would generally be preferred. However, for applications requiring a flat/dimpled surface for mixing uniquely shaped vessels (or a handful of multiple test-tubes), the head can easily be flipped over and reattached in reverse orientation.

Like the original BenchMixer™, the drive system is balanced with Q-Drive™ technology, providing a smooth vortexing action, while minimizing noise and excessive vibration. This results in quieter, more efficient and longer lasting operation. With a maximum speed up to 3,200 rpm, the mixer provides an instant vortex of even the largest sample sizes, including full 50 mL tubes.

Orbi-Shaker CO2™
  • For optimal growth of suspension cells
  • Designed for use in CO2 incubators
  • CO2, Temperature and Humidity compatible
  • Remote controllable - adjust settings without opening incubator door
  • Change flask clamps instantly with MAGic Clamp magnetic platforms
  • 2 year warranty

The new Orbi-Shaker CO2 resistant shaker is designed for shaking, mixing, and aeration applications in extreme environments, including CO2 incubators. It can withstand temperatures from 0-60°C, humidity levels up to 100%, and won't corrode in a CO2 environment.

To avoid contamination, unintentional release of gas or deviations from protocol, both speed and time are set via the included remote control module. The remote controller allows the user to set and adjust the shaker settings without opening the chamber doors.

The instrument is supplied with a 13"x12" non-slip platform. In addition, convenient MAGic Clamp™ platforms (large or small), are also available for use with Erlenmeyer flasks and test tube racks. The unique magnetic attachment method has been widely recognized as the easiest way to instantly change between flask clamps of different sizes.

The Orbi-Shaker XL offers flask capacity that far exceeds that of most benchtop models. With a large 18 x 18 inch platform and a powerful, beltless motor drive, the Orbi-Shaker XL is capable of mixing up to five 2L flasks or nine 1L flasks simultaneously. The included, non-slip rubber mat platform is ideal for low speed applications, while the convenient MAGic Clamp platform is also available for high speed mixing of Erlenmeyer flasks, tube racks or microplates. The MAGic Clamp allows for instant flask clamp exchange without the use of tools, screws or any other hardware.

A remote control is included to allow for setting adjustments of time or mixing speed without opening the door disrupting the CO environment. The remote module can be stored outside of the chamber and connects to the shaker via flat (1mm thickness) cable, that easily passes through a port underneath incubator door without compromising the seal. The remote module magnetically attached to the side of the incubator.


Ideal for the culturing cells, the Incu-Shaker CO2 Mini combines a precision CO2 incubation chamber with an integral orbital shaker, providing the optimum conditions for suspension cell culture. A belt-less motor drive provides a horizontally circular shaking motion at a consistent 19 mm orbit. The included platform (9.5 x 11.5 in.) can be used for low speed shaking of a variety of laboratory vessels, including Erlenmeyer flasks, culture plates, media bottles, and bioreactors. For higher speed mixing, a MAGic Clamp platform is available for magnetic attachment of flask clamps and tube racks.

The six-side heating system in combination with a low speed internal fan uniformly spreads air throughout the stainless steel chamber (without air exchange from the external environment). For applications requiring solely gravity convection, this internal fan can be disabled, significantly reducing the concern of sample to sample contamination.

Key Features:

  • Six side direct heating for excellent uniformity and recovery
  • Integral, MAGic clamp orbital shaker, idea for suspension cell culture
  • Dual Beam IR sensor, for precise CO2 control.
  • Stackable design with belt-less motor which limit vibration and provide a smooth, consistent shaking motion.
  • Stainless steel chamber with rounded corners for easy cleaning.
