Title: METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR LINEAR AND ROTATIONAL CONTAINER AGITATION
Abstract:
A linear actuator member (128) applies a vertical force to a vessel (112) or to a holding apparatus in which a vessel (112) is contained. A linear to angular motion constraining member such as a cage structure (114) having a helical track (115) translates linearly directed force and motion applied by the linear actuator member (128) into a combined linear and rotational motion of the vessel (112). The combined vertical and rotational motion of the vessel (112) in response to the vertical force is repeatable according to a predefined agitation pattern for mixing components in the vessel (112).
