The VORTEX-GENIE 2*, mixer with pop-off cup and three-inch platform, is an upgraded
version of the original industry standard VORTEX-GENIE® mixer, with many capabilities
Interchangeable Quick-Change™ snap-on attachments can be pressed on and
popped off without the use of tools. The powerful motor works via “constant on” or
“touch on” operation, and the variable speed provides both vortex and shaking actions,
greatly expanding its applications. It allows very slow operation without sacrificing
high-speed performance, so any desired mix homogeneity can be achieved (and
repeated) according to viscosity, miscibility and container.
The three-inch platform accepts single or multiple
test tubes, beakers and various flasks. The
removable cover is made of thermoplastic rubber,
and is highly impervious to most chemicals. Still,
it is recommended that spills are blotted quickly.
Do not attempt to use the three-inch platform
without its cover.
1. Plug the cord into a properly grounded, three-pronged outlet (120V for the G560
model; 240V for the G560E; 100V for the G560-100V).

4. Turn speed control knob to setting No. 3 on the dial (Mixer will not start if dial is
lower than setting No. 3). In the “ON” position, you will see the attachment in
motion immediately. In the “TOUCH” ( ) position, the vessel must come in
contact with the attachment to achieve motion. To achieve the desired mix, vary
the speed on the dial and/or the angle of contact and pressure against the mixing
5. When finished with either continuous or intermittent operation, return switch to
“OFF” position in the center.
6. The VORTEX-GENIE 2 mixer may become warm to the touch with constant use,
however, performance will not be affected.
CAUTION! Do not lift the VORTEX-GENIE 2 mixer by its attachment.
All of the attachments, including the cup, are removable. They will pop off easily
when lifted, and snap on again just as easily by aligning and then pressing down.
The pop-off cup can accommodate tubes of
almost any size or shape—from microcentrifuge
tubes to those up to 40mm diameter and 200mm
length. In almost all cases, tubes can be mixed
uncapped. Proper speed control prevents
CAUTION! Failure to follow operating instructions can compromise user’s
Care and Handling
The VORTEX-GENIE 2 mixer should be given the care normally required for any
electrical appliance. Avoid wetting or unnecessary exposure to fumes. The surface
can be washed with water and soap or detergents, using a cloth or sponge. All
rubber and foam parts will wear over time depending upon frequency of use,
exposure to chemicals, etc. These and all replacement parts are available through
most laboratory equipment distributors. Refer to “Parts Assembly List” and enclosed
CAUTION! Unplug from power before cleaning. Do not immerse.
