temperature controlled shakers

Orbital shakers come in a wide range of temperature capabilities to meet specific growth requirements from refrigerated shakers that go down to 4ºC for protein expression applications to high temperature shakers that go up to 80ºC for growth of thermophiles. We stand behind our shakers with an industry leading warranty of 2 years on labor, 5 years on parts and a full 10 years on the drive mechanism.

Reliability

reliable temperature controlled shaker

Reliable drive mechanisms provide 24-hour smooth and consistent shaking.

Simplicity

easy-to-use temperature controlled shaker

Exceptional visibility with large scratch resistant lids plus easy-to-use controls make it easy to precisely adjust temperature, speed and time.

Flexibility

flexible temperature controlled shaker

Unique sizes and wide temperature ranges provide orbital shakers suitable for a broad range of applications.



Which type of temperature control fits your needs best?

Even if you just need incubated (heated) temperature ranges today, in the future you may want to perform protein studies where refrigerated temperatures such as 16°C are required. We offer both temperature ranges in our benchtop and large capacity shakers, so choose for today and tomorrow.

Incubated (heated) shakers

flu-cell-100x100

Use for incubation of microorganisms or for cells derived from tissues for applications in life science and medical research, environmental science and monitoring, diagnostics, and production including cell products like DNA, RNA, proteins and antibodies, or production of virus or cells themselves.

Incubated (heated) & refrigerated shakers

plant-cell-100x100

Shakers with cooling as well as warming options are ideal for shaking liquid cell cultures of insect, fish, or plant cells, or for temperature-induced induction procedures where the ambient conditions are too warm to be controlled using incubated (heated) shakers.
