GERSTEL mVORX

Vortex- and Orbital shaker for the MultiPurpose Sampler (MPS)

mVORX is a highly efficient vortex mixer and orbital shaker for the GERSTEL MultiPurpose Sampler (MPS). mVORX enables efficient simultaneous mixing of up to 8 samples depending on the vial size used. The mVORX orbital motion is provided by a precise linear, direct drive motor enabling finely-tuned operation. The mixing movements are well isolated in the horizontal plane, allowing even the most sensitive samples to be mixed efficiently without over agitation or wetting the vial cap (avoiding possible contamination). mVORX provides highly efficient mixing, homogenization and liquid/liquid extraction.

mVORX can be combined with a wide variety of sample preparation and clean-up techniques such as SPE, dispersive SPE (DPX), centrifugation, evaporation or filtration with the significant benefit of automated injection of the sample into a GC/MS or LC/MS system. Every step is controlled by mouse-click using the MAESTRO software. Just one sequence table and - depending on the system - one method is needed for the entire process including GC/MS or LC/MS analysis.
