Mixing Efficiency in standard tubes

Experimental studies of the mixing behavior depend on preselected mixing speeds.

Laboratory apparatus:

BioShake iQ

Sample container:

Standard Eppendorf® tubes with 1.5, 0.5 and 0.2 ml volume

Volume per well:

approximately 10-20 %

Measuring device:

High speed video camera


Fast and efficient mixing in standard tubes is depend on:

  • viscosity of the solution,
  • filling volume per tube, and
  • preselected shaking frequency.

We present images of mixing processes in tubes:
