Precision Mixing with Temperature Control
  • Control temperature, speed, and mixing intervals
  • Heat to 99°C or cool 13°C below room temperature
  • Blocks are available for a variety of tubes and multiple well plates

Increase the reproducibility of your temperature-dependent reactions for better yields and more consistent results. Control block temperature, mixing speed, and mixing intervals simultaneously and precisely with the Mixer HC. Includes a convenient short mix button for quick, instant mixing.

Two special functions provide additional options for specific applications. Digital display offers precise control.

- Interval mixing:
Continuously alternates between mixing and stationary periods where the mixing frequency and the duration of the mixing and pause functions can be freely selected.
- Program mode:
In addition to a normal mixing/temperature control run, two combined, consecutive mixing/temperature control runs can be programmed. When the first run is completed, the second run will switch on automatically, allowing two different conditions to be applied to the same liquid.

Mixing speed is block dependent: 300-1400 rpm for 1.5 mL, 2.0 mL, and cryogenic tubes; 300-1500 for 0.5 mL tubes; and 300-750 for 5 mL, 15 mL, and 50 mL tubes. Plates weighing 200 grams or less may be mixed at 300-1400 rpm; above 200 grams use 300-800 rpm. Blocks for microcentrifuge tubes include a polycarbonate rack for quick transfer of all 24 tubes at once.


The Mixer HC is ideal for a broad range of applications, including the following:
  • cDNA synthesis
  • Enzyme reactions (restriction digest, ligation, proteinase-K-digestion)
  • Denaturation of DNA, RNA, or proteins
  • Labeling of DNA, RNA, or proteins
  • Cultivation of bacteria in microcentrifuge tubes, centrifuge tubes and deep well plates
  • Transformation of bacteria and plasmids
  • Resuspension of pellets
