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 and features. 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.
APPLICATIONS 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.
OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS 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). 2. VORTEX-GENIE 2 is supplied with the 3-inch platform installed and is ready for use. To install the pop-off cup or other attachments (sold separately), follow these steps: a. b. c. d.
Turn power to “OFF” ( ) position Remove the installed attachment by pulling straight up Place alternate attachment on post and rotate until “flats” align Press attachment down firmly until it snaps into place
3. For intermittent operation, push switch to “TOUCH” ( operation, push switch to “ON” ( ) position.
) position. For continuous
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 attachment. 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 overflow.
CAUTION! Failure to follow operating instructions can compromise user’s safety. 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 multi-fold brochure. CAUTION! Unplug from power before cleaning. Do not immerse. SPECIFICATIONS The VORTEX-GENIE 2 mixer is classified as “Installation Category 2” Environmental: 32˚F (0˚C) – 100˚F (38˚C), 95% Humidity max.
