The gradient rotation mixer works on the principle of rotating the diffusion interface of two liquids from the vertical plane to the horizontal plane. Since the diffusion distance from top to bottom is much smaller (10um) than from left to right (200um), fast and efficient mixing is achieved. The mixer principle can be adapted to a wide range of flow rates, and a wide range of diffusion constants.
