Product News: Say "Hello" to MixMate – The new mixer for small volumes

30 Oct 2006


The new MixMate from Eppendorf is a compact mixer for fast and controlled mixing of small volumes. Optimized mixing parameters and a well thought-out operation concept set new standards in sample preparation.

MixMate was specially developed for the particular needs of plates and effectively mixes PCR plates (whether skirted, semi-skirted or unskirted), deepwell plates und MTPs up to 96- and 384-well formats. The supplied tube holder makes it possible to work with all standard micro test tubes (0.2 ml, 0.5 ml, 1.5 ml and 2.0 ml) in the MixMate. The innovative 2DMix-Control technology thereby enables the effective and controlled mixing of samples in the least possible time, without the use of a lid being necessary to avoid spillage. This makes the reproducible results possible that are necessary for processes such as PCR setup or the re-suspension of pellets, mixing gel loading buffers, reporter gene assays, immuno assays and colorimetric protein quantification.

The MixMate from Eppendorf unites a plate and tube mixer with a vortex function in a 3-in-1 format, making it suitable for nearly all mixing applications for small volumes. Like all Eppendorf mixers, the MixMate also conforms to the requirements of the IVD guideline 98/79/EC.
