The PRO Scientific 560000-00 VSM-3 Vortex Mixer has variable speed from 0 to 3000rpm to provide gentle mixing to rapid vortexing, and can be operated by touch or in continuous mode. This mixer comes with a cup head adapter for a single test tube and a 3" platform head adapter for beakers, flasks, or multiple test tubes. Additional interchangeable mixing heads for holding microtubes and microplates are available (sold separately). The mixer has rubber feet that provide stability and help absorb vibration, and acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) housing for durability. Vortex shakers are commonly used in laboratories to mix liquids.

Vortex shakers mix small amounts of liquid in laboratory containers for biochemical, microbiological, and other applications. A vortex shaker can be analog or digital and is commonly an automated, electrically powered, benchtop unit with a base that holds a rubber cup or a platform that spins off center. The user places a test tube, beaker, or other small vessel of liquid onto the spinning cup or platform, creating a vortex to mix the liquid. Some models can hold multiple containers, often by an accessory attached to the base. Additional features may include fixed or variable speeds, touch or hands-free operation, and various voltages.
PRO Scientific manufactures laboratory and industrial equipment such as homogenizers, centrifuges, rockers, shakers, generators, and stirrers. The company, founded in 1992, is headquartered in Oxford, CT.
