The variable amplitude and speed TEOS orbital shakers/mixers
are based on a novel design principle (US
Patent 5,988.869). A plate holding platform floating on air bearings and air
driven high speed
turbines with calibrated eccentric weights combine to provide a unique vortex generating
capability, repeatable return to "Zero X-Y" position and high reliability.
motion with adjustable amplitude and the resulting linear liquid speed (RPM) enable
sustained uniform mixing in
high-density 384, 1536 or 3456 well uHTS plate formats.
Various video clips taken with high speed
camera and in real time show effective vortex generation in different types
micro-titer plates. (Vortex
in 384 well plate,
Vortex in 1536 well plate,
Mixing in 384 well plate).
The TEOS orbital
mixing technology is also well suited for handling heavier loads. The
orbital platform floats on air bearings, which enable handling of deep well
plates, synthesis blocks, arrays of vessels, etc.
Integration support for the TEOS
is also available on a custom basis. Custom requirements in device
footprint, hardware and software design and integration are routinely
