The Scientific Industries SI-DD88 Disruptor Genie cell disruptor has a speed range of 1,000 to 2,850 rpm, holds up to 12 2.0mL microtubes, has digital control and LED readout of speed and process time with timed operation up to 99 minutes, and provides simultaneous agitation and vortex mixing. The combined motion enhances the efficiency of disruption beads (sold separately) for high yields in less time. Basic vortex mixing of single test tubes can be accomplished by replacing the microtube holder with the supplied pop-off cup. An adjustable speed alarm warns if the unit cannot maintain the set speed. The base is a solid metal casting for stability and the body is made of stainless steel for resistance to corrosion. This cell disruptor is used for the disruption and homogenization of yeast cells, bacteria, and plant and animal tissue, and for dissolution of chemical substances.
This cell disruptor has an allowable ambient temperature range of 0 to 38 degrees C (32 to 100 degrees F) at 95% relative humidity, and is suitable for use in cold rooms and incubators.
|Speed range||1,000 to 2,850 revolutions per minute (rpm)|
|Capacity||12 1.5 or 2.0mL microtubes|
|Timed operation||0 to 99 minutes or continuous|
|Allowable temperature range||0 to 38 degrees C (32 to 100 degrees F) at 95% relative humidity|

|Overall dimensions||19.0 x 12.2 x 16.5cm/7.5 x 4.8 x 6.5 inches (H x W x D)|
H is height, the vertical distance from the lowest to highest point; W is width, the horizontal distance from left to right; D is depth, the horizontal distance from front to back.
Laboratory shakers agitate liquids for biological and chemical procedures by repetitively moving the vessels holding the liquids. The types of vessels include glass or plastic bottles, flasks, tubes, and microplates. Shakers are categorized by the type of movement used, which can be orbital (circular), reciprocating, vibrating, rocking, waving (gyrating), rotating (rotisserie), or wrist-action. Typically a shaker will have analog or digital controls for setting the speed and sometimes also the degree of movement. Some shakers have the ability to incubate or refrigerate samples during shaking. Shakers are used in a variety of laboratory procedures, including hemolysis, preparation of emulsions and suspensions, staining, and cell cultivation.
Scientific Industries manufactures laboratory equipment such as shakers and mixers, homogenizers, and incubators under the Vortex-Genie and Genie brands. The company, founded in 1954, is headquartered in Bohemia, NY.
