Starlab introduces Vortex Mixer

Hamburg-based laboratory products manufacturer Starlab has launched its new Starlab Vortex Mixer, offering top performance and user friendliness.

The Starlab developers’ goal was a new type of vortexer providing multifunctionality with focus on user-friendliness. The unique feature of the new Vortex Mixer is the intuitive glove-compatible touchscreen user interface. The screen makes it easy to set the speed and time and offers pre-set options that allow users quick speed and time selection at the touch of a button. Customised speed and time setting is also available. The mixer is energy smart thanks to its sleep mode, which reduces energy consumption by putting the device on standby after a period of unuse.

With a speed range from 300 rpm to 3500 rpm in touch mode, the Vortex Mixer provides versatility for all laboratory requirements. The large surface area allows differently shaped tubes and containers to be vortexed, whilst the recessed centre provides the benefits of traditional, cup-style attachments.

For greater flexibility, optional adapters are also available for continuous mixing of tubes or a microplate within a 300 rpm to 1500 rpm range. On top of that, the Starlab Vortex Mixer runs quietly, ensuring a disturbance-free working environment in the laboratory. Stability and safety during operation are provided by the anti-slip feet.

Like Starlab’s Minicentrifuge – which was introduced 18 months ago – the new product is based on the company’s distinctive curved design. The mixer’s fluid design, with its striking wave pattern and two-tone colour scheme, sets it apart from other laboratory devices.

“We are extremely proud to present yet another important product for next-generation laboratory operations. It is designed to make day-to-day lab work even easier and more efficient. The development process was once again guided by our central motto: putting the fun in laboratory work. Because fun is what drives passion and performance, and you can’t achieve successful research without them”, says Klaus Ambos, President & CEO of Starlab International. The Starlab Vortex Mixer will be available from 5 March 2024 with a price of £350 GBP.
