Introducing the HELIX Oscillating Biomixer®

The HELIX Oscillating Biomixer® is the ideal blending and storage solution for all areas of Life Sciences

Our patented HELIX Oscillating Biomixer® is a highly versatile mixer with multiple uses.  We designed it as a pilot and small batch, self-mixing, closed system mixer that eliminates problems associated with traditional vessels.  The HELIX integrates dynamic radial fins to blend or mix components with an external and programmable oscillating action to impart the exact amount of shear required thus eliminating the need for mixing blades or magnets.  These fins are molded into the bottle itself to move material upward when rotated in one direction and downward when oppositely rotated, thus the oscillation creates a unique mixing pattern. When used with our programmable Turn-Table, any mixing profile can be applied depending on the raw material characteristics. Low-shear, sensitive cellular work is possible with one program and difficult powder can be accomplished with another, all with the same equipment.  The lightweight and leak-proof HELIX is constructed of Class VI polypropylene and can be sterilized in an autoclave and there is no need to open the vessel after components are charged thus minimizing contamination risk.

Ways to Use the HELIX Oscillating Biomixer®

The patented Helix Oscillating Biomixer® is so versatile and unique, we can’t stop finding new uses for it. Here are three we found useful

As a Mixer

The HELIX has dynamic radial fins molded into the bottle itself that move material upward when rotated in one direction and downward when oppositely rotated, thus the oscillation creates a unique mixing pattern. When used with our programmable Turn-Table, any mixing profile can be applied depending on the raw material characteristics. Low-shear, sensitive cellular work is possible with one program and difficult powder can be accomplished with another, all with the same equipment. Suggested uses are chemical / media blending, tissue cleaning or a cost-effective and versitile bioreactor.

As a Horizontal Jar Mill

The HELIX was designed to be compact and rugged with good handling characteristics. When used with a roller mill, the radial fins provide another cascade angle that can reduce milling time with compatible media. Suggested uses are wet and dry powder particle size reduction and cell disruption.

As a Carboy

The HELIX can be used to hold or transport solutions or cells at temperature ranges from 0°C to 121°C. As a carboy, it’s rugged, volume indicating, sterilizable and can maintain your product isolated from environmental contamination. When its time to use the solution, you can even put it back on the Turn-Table for a quick mix just before use. Suggested uses are staging before fill and chemical and cellular storage,
