Labnet Lab Rotators


Revolver™ Adjustable Lab Rotator

H5600-230V-UK Revolver™ Tube Mixer w/rotisserie for 36×1.5 tubes, 230V

Incubator-Compatible Lab Rotator

Labnet’s Revolver™ lab sample rotator accepts a variety of tube sizes and mixes them horizontally, vertically, or any position in between. Changing the mixing angle is easy simply turn the rotisserie. No tools are required.

  • Complete 360° rotation
  • Adjustable 0-90° mixing angle
  • Interchangable rotisserie options for all common lab tubes.
  • Independently adjustable rotisseries
  • Cold room and incubator compatible

Interchangeable rotisseries accept tubes from 1.5 ml to 50 ml. Each rotisserie is split into two halves. Each of the halves can be exchanged to mix more than one tube type at the same time. Each rotisserie half can be rotated independently from a center point on the shaft. Placing the halves in line with the shaft produces an end over end tumbling motion, similar to that used to mix blood tubes. Rotating the rotisserie at a right angle to the shaft produces a gentle mixing motion, ideal for delicate samples. Any position in between these two extremes may be selected to achieve the desired mixing action. Rotation speed is fixed at 18rpm (20rpm for 230V models).

Revolver Lab Rotator Operation

The Revolver™ lab rotator can be used in ambient temperatures from +4°C to 55°C, making it ideal for a variety of laboratory settings such as Molecular Biology, Biochemistry, clinical and Histochemistry. Small enough to fit on a crowded bench, the rotator is easily moved where it is needed – the bench, cold room, incubator or biological hood. With a molded housing and unique rotisserie design, the Revolver is easy to clean and decontaminate. A 36 x 1.5/2.0 ml rotisserie is supplied with the Revolver™. Other configurations are available separately.

Compact and sleek lab rotator design.

A small footprint and efficient housing design conserve valuable bench space and make the Mini LabRoller™ Rotator suitable for any size laboratory. It has an ambient operating range of 4° to 55°C and will easily fit into most incubators. Lightweight and portable, the unit is easily moved from the bench to a biological or chemical hood. Simple construction allows for easy cleaning and decontamination.

Wide range of motion

The Mini LabRoller™ Rotator is uniquely designed so that the level of agitation can be adjusted from gentle rolling, through two levels of tumbling, to forceful end over end mixing simply by changing the rotisserie position.

When a rotisserie is inserted horizontally (tubes held vertically), an end over end motion is produced. The unit can then be used for simple rotating, or rested on either end to create a tumbling motion. Placing the Mini LabRoller™ on the end with the power switch will create a more vigorous tumbling motion than resting it on the opposite end. A rocking motion is achieved by simply inserting pegs to limit the movement of the rotisserie to 20°, 45°, or 60°. Any of the three available rotisseries can be used as a rocking platform.

Using the supplied rod, the rotisseries may be mounted vertically (tubes held horizontally). In all configurations, the speed of the rotisserie is fixed at 24rpm. Interchangeable rotisseries hold numerous tube sizes.

The Mini LabRoller™ Rotator is supplied with a rotisserie for 36 x 1.5 or 2.0 ml tubes. Two additional rotisseries are available separately. The first accommodates ten conical 15 ml or other tubes with a 15-17 mm diameter as well as twelve tubes with a 12-13 mm diameter. The second holds six 50 ml conical tubes. Microplates can be used on any of the three rotisseries. Wide range of applications.

With three rotisserie configurations, dual rotisserie positions and the ability to change the position of the unit to produce a wide range of motions, the Mini LabRoller™ Rotator has applications in a variety of areas. Its compact size allows it to be used in combination with Labnet’s Mini Incubator, for a compact temperature controlled mixing solution. In addition to its small size, the Mini LabRoller™ is quiet and economical, making it an excellent value.
