The BioSan V-1 plus: precise mixing of various components

This instrument from BioSan allows mixing and resuspending of microbiological and chemical liquid components and cells in tubes using eccentric mechanisms.BioSan Vortex V-1 plus is an ideal instrument for these tasks and operates in two modes, pulse mode and continuous mode. Pulse mode is activated by pressing the cover.

What is a suspension?

It is a heterogeneous mixture of substances consisting of a liquid as well as solids dispersed in it. The suspension tends to phase separation and sedimentation. Suspensions in water are called slurry.

The separation of the individual components takes place according to the natural conditions. The model is therefore the optimal laboratory instrument for gentle mixing or vigorous resuspension.

Safety is always guaranteed

This unit is a high-quality laboratory unit that complies with all safety specifications. Pulse operation only starts when the hood is pressed. Of course, this also means that it must be intact and checked regularly.

Since this is not feasible in a running laboratory operation, checks must be carried out at regular intervals. This involves checking the integrity of the electrical device as well as its functionality. The main focus of the test is the correct start of the pulse operation, the proper closing of the hood as well as the functionality.

High precision as a part of functionality is also tested. Thus, you can always be sure that your device works reliably.

The technical specifications

The model works on the electric mixing principle and has a speed setting range between 500 RPM and 3,000 RPM. The acceleration time is less than one second. The maximum continuous operating time is 24 hours. The maximum mixing volume is 30 ml.

Orbit diameter is 4 mm and dimensions are 90 mm x 150 mm x 80 mm. The device is very light at 0.8 kg. The power consumption is very low at 3.8 W. The power supply should be AC 100 V to 240 V with 50/60 Hz for the input and DC 12 V for the output.

Safety is directed to the mixtures and resuspensions. Clear separation of components and stable mixing are essential.

The advantages of the BioSan mixing device

This model is small, handy and precise. The mixing device for tubes is suitable for both continuous and impulse operation and thus offers numerous possibilities. Safety is ensured at all times. The hood provides sufficient safety, but also establishes contact for initiating pulse operation.

This BioSan unit is specially designed for cells, microbiological and chemical liquid components. Acceleration time is optimal and power consumption is minimal. BioSan's Vortex is ideal for separating suspensions.

A great advantage is the handy size and the low weight. This means that the high-quality vortex can be used wherever it is needed.

Cleaning is therefore also very easy. Maintenance is usually combined with regular inspection because of the cost and time savings.
