Solaris Orbital Shakers

Thermo Scientific Solaris Orbital Shakers set a high standard for reliability and technical innovation. Ruggedly built for demanding applications in busy research and GLP/GMP labs, they combine a new ergonomic design with key feature enhancements that help save you time, protect your process, and drive your science forward. 


Reliability and technical innovation

Raising the bar in performance

Advanced user interface and programming capabilities for fast and secure storage of protocols and setpoints. The large, bright user interface lets you easily monitor set points and status conditions from across the lab. Programs can be downloaded, uploaded, or shared across other Solaris shakers in your laboratory, allowing for better reproducibility and efficiency.

Designed for easy maintenance

Solaris Orbital Shakers have rounded corners and easy-to-remove platforms that make cleaning fast and simple. A sealed motor and shaker housing protects the drive mechanism from damaging spills, simplifies cleaning, and controls contamination. The sleek and thoughtful design results in a low-maintenance shaker with a long service life.

Energy-optimized with Peltier technology

The Solaris Incubated and Refrigerated Benchtop Shakers are energy efficient and use 58% less energy compared to older models with a traditional compressor design. Compressor-free, environmentally friendly Peltier cooling helps reduce costly energy consumption and can be less hazardous.
