In fact, once they are set up in your lab, you will see how the long list of innovative product features translates to multiple benefits for your team, assuring you effectiveness, efficiency, and productivity.

Triple eccentric drive mechanism gives you continuous 24-hour operation and allows you to shake and stir large and uneven loads, smoothly and uniformly. Plus, it is guaranteed for life.

This shaker operates in temperature ranges of 0°C to 40°C and humidity conditions from 20 to 80% non-condensing enables them to be used in incubators, warm rooms, environmental chambers and refrigerators.

Continuous and timed operation from 0.1 hour to 999 hours or 0.1 minute to 999 minutes

Minimize errors by viewing speed and operating time simultaneously on two individual LED displays

Shaker shutdown and visual/audible alarms signal if unit operates ±10% of set speed, preventing shaker from walking

User-adjustable speed calibration can be performed using a digital handheld tachometer, where verification is required and protocols can be standardized

Unbalanced load sensor stops platform motion when excess vibration is detected and visual/audio alarms signal until condition is corrected

Soft start feature eliminates sudden starts and stops, splashing of vessel contents or wetting of flask closure

Retains parameters during power failure and restarts unit automatically after power is restored

RS232 interface allows remote monitoring of speed and time

Applications: Cell culture, Solubility studies, Extraction procedures, Diagnostic tests, General mixing, Bacterial suspensions, Staining and destaining, Washing procedures, Hybridization
