axiSPIN microcentrifuge tube vortexer

axiSPIN microcentrifuge tube vortexer

The axiSPIN microcentrifuge tube vortexer is a cost-effective device essential for all lab benches.  The combi micro centrifuge combines a tube vortex mixer for invaluable space savings.  It allows combined or independent centrifuge and mixing of 0.2, 0.5, or 1.5 ml microtubes and PCR tubes..

This combi spin mini-centrifuge for PCR tubes can be used in microbiological, biochemical, clinical and industrial biotechnological laboratories. axiSPIN provides simultaneous mixing and separation of samples, using centrifuge and mixing modules, located on the common spin module.

The axiSPIN combo microcentrifuge tube mixer is very simple to operate.  Use the left button to select short or continuous spin, and the right button to start the unit.  It is provided with a protection mechanism that stops the rotor motion when the lid is opened.

Laboratory space is very expensive.  Make efficient use of every bit of bench space by using a combo vortexer tube micro-centrifuge.  Most assay protocols often include a step to mix and then spin down. This is exactly the situation the axiSPIN microcentrifuge tube vortexer was designed for.

Proper sample mixing is critical to lower test results variability.  For this reason, the tube vortexer needs to be next to the pipetting area. Contrifuging tubes is also critical.  Droplets of liquids on the wall need to be forced down into the main solution.

It is very useful next to a microarray spotter, as one should always spin down samples to avoid particles from being aspirated into the nozzle. The new axiSPIN combi microcentrifuge tube vortexer is a clear benefit for optimal space utilization.
