The Thermo Scientific ELED M37615Q Maximix II Vortex Mixer has variable speed of 100 to 3,000rpm for gentle shaking to rapid vortexing of samples, and can be operated by touch or in continuous mode. This mixer comes with a cup head for mixing a single test tube, and a foam pad for mixing a flask or multiple tubes. It has a heavy-duty cast metal base that provides stability, rubber feet that absorb vibration to help prevent walking, and plastic housing that resists acids and alkalines. It is Canadian Standards Association (CSA) approved. 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.
