With three times the capacity of a floor shaker in virtually the same footprint, these units are ideal for high-volume research or scale-up work. They are built both for sensitive eukaryotic culture applications—with contamination-reducing HEPA filtration, coved corner design, single-piece chamber, and tight temperature uniformity—and for demanding prokaryotic culture applications, with rugged construction, wide speed range, and no limits on “hard shake” speed, even when stacked three-high.

Microprocessor Control/Monitoring System

  • Run and setpoints displayed simultaneously
  • Tracks total accumulated time on motor and drive systems
  • Audible/visual over- and undertemperature tracking alarms ensure product protection
  • Separate adjustable overtemperature safety alarm with independent probe provides additional backup on heated units
  • Audible/visual, high/low rpm tracking alarms alert to speed deviations
  • Alarms can be silenced temporarily and ring back as a reminder of unresolved alarm conditions
  • Remote alarm contacts for convenient monitoring from another location
  • Nonvolatile memory saves settings during a power outage and automatically restarts the unit after power is restored
  • RS-232 port is standard and permits computer interface and monitoring of time, temperature and speed
  • Controlled acceleration circuitry provides smooth start-up and stopping to eliminate splashing and wetting of flask closures
  • Functions can be calibrated easily through the keypad and sealed control panel
Control Panel
  • Backlit two-line, 40-character LCD alphanumeric display of actual (run) and setpoint parameters and alarm condition
  • Icons/buttons allow easy programming of set parameters
  • Time: Counts upward, showing total operating hours and minutes for the run
  • Speed: Displays the actual platform speed (rpm) and speed set points
  • Temp C: Displays the actual temperature inside the chamber and temperature set points
  • Electronic components and HEPA filter easily accessed from the front during regular maintenance or service
  • Flip-down handle/latch on quick-release base (included) prevents shaker from running if platform is not secured
  • Insulated, fold-down door with slide-out platform provides 100% sample access
  • Wide-view window and xenon light provide high visibility for harvesting
  • Top platform height is under 61 in. (154.9cm) when units are stacked three high
  • Heavy-gauge cold-rolled steel exterior
  • Type 304 stainless-steel chamber with coved corners and built-in drain; holds 2L Erlenmeyer flasks, has xenon light with switch
  • Magnetic door gasket for tight seal
  • Stacking kit is included with each shaker at no additional cost
  • Heavy-duty, eccentric drive mechanism allows extended speed ranges from 25 to 400rpm ±1rpm with minimal vibration, even when shakers are stacked three high
  • Durable, dynamically balanced orbital shaker mechanism ensures optimum oxygenation and nutrient mixing, reduced cell clumping, and prevention of splashing and flask wetting
  • Triple counterbalanced mechanism provides optimum handling of full or unbalanced loads, regardless of flask placement
  • Cool-running, brushless, 1/3hp DC motor ensures continuous maintenance-free operation
  • Forced laminar airflow through the HEPA filter provides excellent temperature uniformity, reduces risk of cross-contamination
