Designed for a variety of shaking applications such as cell cultures, solubility studies, bacterial suspensions, and general mixing. The large capacity platform and tray hold up to 15.9kg (35lbs.). Variable speed, microprocessor control provides consistent, uniform mixing action. Ramping feature slowly increases speed to setpoint for added safety. Independent LED displays feature speed, temperature, and time. Easy-to-use, spill-resistant touchpad controls adjust temperature in 1°C increments. Timer will display elapsed time, or, when programmed to user-defined limit, will count down to zero and shut off unit. Audible alarm sounds when time reaches zero. Temperature calibration mode allows unit to be calibrated to an external temperature device.
The patented Opti-Flow forced ventilation system uses twin induction fans and air deflectors to deliver exceptional temperature uniformity and stability. Microprocessor, PID temperature controller maintains precise temperature uniformity and stability and meets ASTM E1292 specifications for temperature uniformity.
The accu-drive shaking system ensures exceptional speed control, accuracy, safety, and durability. This system continuously monitors shaking speed and will maintain setpoint even under changing loads. For added safety, a ramping feature slowly increases speed to setpoint and a built-in load sensor will automatically reduce rpm during unbalanced conditions to further prevent spills and protect samples.
The powerful triple eccentric drive and brushless motor is designed for continuous duty and able to handle heavy loads. Spill-resistant design protects internal components from accidental spills and leaks. Removable tray design allows for easy cleaning of chamber.
Microprocessor will recall last setpoints, even when unit has been shut off. RS-232 serial port provides two-way communication for data logging and unit control. Tray features a nonskid rubber mat appropriate for holding petri dishes and cell culture flasks. The polycarbonate lid allows users to view samples without disturbing internal temperature. When lid is opened, automatic shut-off circuit will stop shaker platform to protect operator.
The optional, stainless steel shaker platform slides over the included tray and rubber mat, and can be tightened with adjustment screws. The platform can be used to mount Erlenmeyer flask clamps and test tube racks.
CSA certified and CE marked.
