Vitl Flexi-Therm and Ther-Mix Update

As part of our ongoing program to produce lab equipment that is reliable, innovative and functional, the development team at Vitl Life Science Solutions has been busy working on two new additions to our range – the Ther-Mix heated mixer and the Flexi-Therm dry block heater.

Vitl Ther-MixThe Vitl Ther-Mix heated mixer builds on the successful Co-Mix platform, maintaining the same size and shape whilst giving new functionality, namely the ability to heat your samples whilst mixing in a range of consumables from microplates to microtubes.

Like the Co-Mix, the user is able to pre-programme and store up to 100 mixing profiles with step-by-step mixing speed, time, ramp rate and temperature variables.

Interchangeable, intelligent Heated Modules

Heating is provided through intelligent, heated modules which are interchangeable between the two devices, allowing for fast throughput and the ability to move samples from a mixer to a block heater without the need to reprogram or recalibrate the block.

There is a heated lid available on some modules which can be independently controlled and gives direct sample contact, providing unmatched protection against the build-up of condensate. A class-leading instrument is in the making!

Release dates

Plans are underway for the Flexi-Therm and the first of the heated adapter range, suitable for 0.5ml, 1.5ml and 2ml microcentrifuge tubVitl Flexi-Thermes (standard Eppendorfs), to be available early 2016, with the more complex Ther-Mix making its appearance shortly after.

Further development will be undertaken from release onwards to expand the range of heated modules to cover microplates, alternative sizes of microcentrifuge tubes, and also larger volume consumables based on market feedback.

See the prototypes

Prototypes of both products will be on the ITL exhibition stand at Medtec Europe next month, the IES stand at CISILE and also at the MEDICA exhibition in November.
