This mixing can be shown by a topview time-lapse photography of controlled mixing. The pictures show the same well of a skirted Eppendorf twin.tec® PCR Plate 96, filled with 75 μL of water with dye Ponceau 4R. The first picture on the left shows a sample without mixing. Picture two-to-five show a controlled mixing at 1,650 rpm mixing speed (4 time-lapse photos). The droplet clearly changes its shape, resulting in internal mixing processes.
The 2D Mix-Control technology enables liquid mixing in a very controlled, circular movement. Besides the efficient mixing, the lack of chaotic splashing enables mixing without lid wetting or cross-contamination.
