Introducing Vortex Mixers from OHAUS

Whether mixing reagents of an assay in a biochemistry laboratory or suspending cells in a microbiology laboratory, the process of mixing is essential for day-to-day lab operations.

We now offer a range of Vortex Mixers that are designed to handle everything from low to high capacities, various densities to gentle or vigorous vortexing action - depending on your application.

Get the Right Mix

Four types of Vortex Mixers are available to suit your applications: 

Microplate Vortex Mixers - Designed for continuous-duty operation throughout the speed range. Optimal for effectively mixing microplates.

Mini-Vortex Mixers - Choose from four models offering speed control from low RPM start up for gentle shaking to high-speed mixing for vigorous vortexing.

Multi-Tube Vortex Mixers - Ideal for high throughput sample processing. Improve efficiency by processing up to 50 samples at a time. 

Heavy-Duty Vortex Mixers - Featuring a heavy-duty design and efficient motor to permit continuous duty operation, and handle accessory components over the entire speed range.

Why Choose OHAUS?

1. Wide variety of both analog and digital models within one brand
  • Fixed-Speed models to models with 50 tube capacities
  • Model for every budget and application
2. Accessories are interchangeable with Scientific Industries' “Vortex Genie”, VWR brand, Fisher brand, and Thomas Scientific

3. Sturdy design - will not “walk”

4. Mini Vortex models utilize an internal rubber strip versus most competitors using a metal spring which is prone to wear, requiring service

5. Heavy-Duty & Microplate Vortex mixers utilize a high quality brushless DC (BLDC) German manufactured motor
  • This style motor allows for an increased load capacity and use of accessories throughout the speed range
  • Competitors’ models have speed limitations with accessories, lower number of tube capacities, and only Thermo lists a weight capacity of less than half of the OHAUS Heavy-Duty model
6. Multi-Tube Vortexer features a stainless steel, one piece housing
  • Optimizes clean-ups and is conducive to keeping unit clean and free from contaminants
  • Programmable Pulse Mode (digital models) aids in creating a better mix, especially for difficult samples
