Product News: Eppendorf Introduces Two New Experts for Sample Preparation: ThermoMixer® F0.5 and F2.0

18 Jul 2014

Ever since the launch of the company’s first performance-defining Mixer and the first Thermostat in 1964 Eppendorf has been at the forefront of mixing and temperature control technology for µL volumes. Thanks to Eppendorf’s continuous development, an exciting new generation of Temperature Control and Mixing Instruments is now set to impress with excellent mixing results, outstanding temperature management and the ergonomics and simplicity essential for routine use in a busy laboratory.

The excellent mixing results of the new Eppendorf ThermoMixer® F0.5 and F2.0 (two-in one instruments for combined mixing and incubating) are provided by the unique 2DMix-Control. This is the proven technology from Eppendorf ThermoMixer® C, F1.5 and FP which ensures fast and efficient mixing in just seconds. Controlled circular movements achieve thorough mixing of liquids in even the smallest volumes, while the anti-spill technology prevents lid wetting and cross-contamination.

These instruments were specifically developed for applications in tube formats 0.5 mL and 2.0 mL and extend the product portfolio of the Eppendorf ThermoMixer® family.

For best temperature control performance, Eppendorf also offers the unique Eppendorf ThermoTop® for these instruments, a heated lid with condens.protect technology. This easy-to-use ThermoTop reliably prevents condensation forming on the tube lid and wall, and in addition supports temperature homogeneity of the thermoblocks to ensure excellent reaction conditions. Simple, wireless handling and its automatic recognition render the Eppendorf ThermoTop® indispensable for optimal performance.

Predefined program and temperature keys provide fast and easy access to the most frequently used temperature parameters. With simplicity and ease of use at heart, Eppendorf designed the new ThermoMixer®F0.5 and F2.0 to provide time-saving, stress-free operation and a pleasant working environment.

For tube flexibility in dry incubation, Eppendorf offers the Eppendorf ThermoMixer® C and ThermoStat C, which are operated together with Eppendorf SmartBlocks™.
