A vortex mixer, also known as a vortexer, is a simple apparatus that is often used in laboratories to mix small vials of liquid. It comprises of an electric motor positioned somewhat off-center, with the driving shaft vertically coupled to a cupped rubber portion. The rubber component rapidly oscillates in a circular motion as the motor turns. The motion is transferred to the liquid within the rubber cup and a vortex is formed when a test tube or other suitable container is shoved into it (or touched to its edge).
Vortex mixers are frequently used in bioscience laboratories. They may be used to suspend cells in cell culture and microbiology laboratories. They may be used in a biochemical or analytical laboratory to combine assay reagents or to combine an experimental sample with a dilutant.
These are the different types of vortex mixers –
Measuring cylinders, also known as graduated cylinders, are essential tools used in various scientific and laboratory settings to accurately measure the volume of liquids. They are typically made of glass or polypropylene (PP) and come in different forms such as tall form or short form.
A muffle furnace, also known as a chamber furnace or box furnace, is a type of furnace in which the subject material is isolated from the fuel and all of the products of combustion, including gases and flying ash. This is achieved by placing the material inside a sealed chamber, or muffle, which is then heated by heating elements.
