COMMENTARY FROM OUR CONTRACT LAB

We recently did a project that involved the culturing of numerous E. coli clones and subsequent midi plasmid preps. Vortexing of individual cell pellets was laborious. We were pleased to find that full racks of pellets could be re-suspended and lysed with help from the multitube vortexer. This unit provides very fast vortexing/mixing and provided thorough re-suspension and lysis of our clones. We have also found this as a useful tool for agitating enzyme assays and performing manual solid phase synthetic reactions.

 

APPLICATIONS

It is designed for mechanical and chemical cell lysis, mixing suspensions, and general mixing. This vortex mixer gives a distinctly different motion than shaking a sample. With vortexing, greater shearing forces are placed on materials in the bottom of a tube, thus promoting either disruption or solubility. The multitube vortexer is a tool to provide that extra degree of mixing, however it accommodates full racks of tubes or microwell plates as opposed to singe tubes. Consequently, this unit is useful for higher throughput mixing of samples.

The multi tube vortexer can be used for resuspending bacterial pellets, mixing reagents for alkaline lysis plasmid preps, mixing of components for bead-based assays, mixing of aqueous and organic solutions for extractions, mixing of solid phase supports and reactants, and any other process which requires a vortexing step.  This mixer is sturdy yet quiet in operation.
