A Shaker is a laboratory device used to mix or blend substances in a tube or flask by shaking them. It is most commonly used in chemistry and biology applications. The device includes an oscillating board that is used to place flasks, beakers, or test tubes.

A Stirrer is a small-scale mixing device used to mix, emulsify, integrate and dissolve substances and samples for laboratory applications, it is important to get the appropriate equipment for the required substance.

A Centrifuge is a lab device used to separate particles from solutions, fluids, and gases. The separation is maintained by spinning a vessel at high speed. The separation device is used in most laboratories for purifying cells, subcellular organelles, viruses, proteins, and nucleic acids.

An Evaporator is a separation device used to separate a solvent from a compound. This piece of equipment can be used to divide a solid by separating the liquid from it or to concentrate and purify solutions, thus reducing the amount of the final product and removing contaminants for safer storage and usage.

A Distillator is a device that separates mixture components if they have different boiling points. A liquid is boiled in a distilling flask, then the vapors move to another section of the device where they contact a cool surface.

The main step in selecting mixing & separating equipment is to consider the performance specifications such as container capacity, speed & viscosity ranges, operating temperature, and temperature regulation that should be suitable for the lab’s needs.
