Choose an orbital shaker by temperature

Our orbital shakers offer a wide range of temperature capabilities to meet specific growth requirements from refrigerated models that go down to 4ºC  to high-temperature units that go up to 80ºC for growth of thermophiles.

Open air shakers
 

  • 0°C to 40°C
  • Use on the benchtop in ambient conditions or in a refrigerator or cold room
  • Place inside an incubator or environmental chamber

Incubated shakers
 

  • 5°C above ambient to 80°C
  • Incubate microorganisms or cells derived from tissue
  • Use in life science, medical research, environmental science or diagnostics
  • Ideal for production, including cell products like DNA, RNA, proteins and antibodies

Incubated and refrigerated shakers

  • 15°C below ambient to 80°C
  • Use for temperature-induced induction procedures where ambient conditions are too warm to control with an incubated shaker
  • Ideal for liquid cell cultures of insect, fish, bacteria or plant cells

Choose an orbital shaker by size

Our full range of shakers extend from small benchtop units to three-high, large stackable units, and a variety of sizes in between to accommodate a wide range of vessel types from Erlenmeyer flasks, microwell plates and beakers to centrifuge tubes.

Benchtop shakers

  • Max vessel size 1L & 2L Erlenmeyer flasks
  • 11 x 13 in. & 18 x 18 in. platforms
  • Designed to address both capacity needs and space requirements
  • Personal size shakers, available in both open air and temperature controlled, offer a small footprint for common needs.

Floor model shakers

  • Max vessel size 4L & 6L Erlenmeyer flasks
  • 18 x 30 in. platforms
  • Features consistant temperature monitoring and continous 24-hour operation
  • Incubated and refrigerated temperatures plus the ability to handle heavy loads at high speeds

Stackable shakers

  • Max vessel size 2L to 6L Erlenmeyer flasks
  • 18 x 30 in. & 18 x 18 in. platforms
  • Save valuable lab space and acheive maximum flexibility
  • Durable and dynamically balanced to stack two or three high without sacrificing performance
