The Rotamix units are designed with interchangeable 12" long rotary rods accommodating tubes ranging from 1.5 ml to 50 ml, which make the rotary universal. Rotamix is made from steel, coated with a chemically resistant paint and is extremely quiet. Rotamix® is suitable for use both in the cold room and the incubator. The speed is variable from 0 to 80 rpm. On the RKVSD, rotation speed is displayed on a large LCD.


  1. Place Rotamix on a solid, level surface, ensure the area is free of any other equipment or items items that could become entangled in the rotating rod.
  2. To plug in the AC power adapter into the Power Port (on the side of the unit), twist gently while pushing in. Note: Forcing the connector into place will damage the Power Port.

  4. On the Rod, slide Slotted Bushing towards the Tube Clips, leaving Slotted Bushing about an inch from the end of the rod. Note: Unit must be OFF before installing or removing the rotating rod.
