The Scientific Industries SI-0236 Vortex-Genie 2 is a vortex mixer (shaker) with variable speed of 600 to 3,200rpm for gentle shaking to rapid vortexing of samples, and can be operated by touch or in continuous mode. This mixer comes with a removable cup head for a single tube up to 40mm in diameter and 200mm in length, and a 3″ platform for a beaker, a flask, or multiple tubes. Additional interchangeable mixing heads for holding vessels such as microtubes and microplates are available (sold separately). The mixer’s metal housing and shock-absorbing feet provide a stable platform to help prevent walking. It can be used in cold rooms and incubators, is Electrical Testing Labs (ETL) listed, and has European Conformity (CE) marking. Vortex shakers are commonly used in laboratories to mix liquids.SpecificationsSpeed range600 to 3,200rpmMixing capacityCup head for a single tube; 3″ platform for a beaker, a flask, or multiple tubes; additional interchangeable mixing heads available (sold separately)Orbit4mmElectrical rating120V, 60HzDimensions165 x 122 x 165mm/6.5 x 4.8 x 6.5 inches (H x W x D)Weight4kg (8.8 lb.)

Vortex shakers mix small amounts of liquid in laboratory containers for biochemical, microbiological, and other applications. A vortex shaker can be analog or digital and is commonly an automated, electrically powered, benchtop unit with a base that holds a rubber cup or a platform that spins off center. The user places a test tube, beaker, or other small vessel of liquid onto the spinning cup or platform, creating a vortex to mix the liquid. Some models can hold multiple containers, often by an accessory attached to the base. Additional features may include fixed or variable speeds, touch or hands-free operation, and various voltages.
Scientific Industries manufactures laboratory equipment such as shakers and mixers, homogenizers, and incubators under the Vortex-Genie and Genie brands. The company, founded in 1954, is headquartered in Bohemia, NY.
