Precision sample preparation equipment supplier Grant Instruments has introduced the PTR-35 and PTR-60 360deg vertical rotators to its Grant-bio line of products for life-science laboratories.
The Grant-bio PTR-35 and PTR-60 are available in two fully programmable models and provide 360deg vertical rotation, reciprocation, and vibration mixing functions in one compact unit.
The 360deg vertical rotation function, with speeds from 10-100rev/min, creates long-wave motion for mixing large particles.
The reciprocation function, with a 15deg to 90deg turning angle, creates both long- and medium-wave motion for mixing medium as well as large particles.
The vibration function, which is programmable in bursts of 1-5sec, creates a short-wave motion for mixing small particles.
All actions may be set for continuous or timed operation and individual phases may be linked for maximum operation flexibility.
The Grant-bio PTR-35 and PTR-60 vertical rotators are compact and robust and come with a three-year warranty.
Each unit is supplied standard with a platform that will accommodate up to 26 or 48 microtubes respectively.
Optional accessory platforms are available for both units that can accommodate popular-size tubes of different diameters.
