Top Shaking Incubators
A Shaking incubator is designed to simultaneously incubate and shake or agitate samples. They are ideal for cell culture, cell aeration and solubility experiments, or labs carrying these types of research. One of the primary benefits of a shaking incubator is that if you regularly require the combination of shaking and incubating then having a dedicated shaking incubator removed the requirement to place a separate shaker inside your incubator. Instead, you have one dedicated piece of equipment for incubating and shaking your samples, simplifying the process and improving control over the process. If your shaker is a separate piece of equipment placed inside the incubator you will need to open the incubator every time you need to adjust the shaking settings, thus temporarily losing your set temperature. However, controlling the shaking action from outside of the incubation unit allows you to maintain your set temperature while adjusting shaking parameters. As well as maintaining temperature, if you are controlling the gaseous atmosphere inside the incubator then it is also important to keep your incubator closed at all times to maintain this environment
Its small footprint makes the incubator ideal for use inside of biological safety cabinets, isolating sensitive cultures or for any laboratory simply trying to conserve bench space.
Both temperature and CO₂ Incubators percentage are digitally adjustable and displayed in real time on the large LED control panel. This panel also features a “Cal” function, for easy in-lab calibration of the temperature or CO₂. In addition, humidity (up to 80%) can be added to the chamber by inserting the included (stainless steel) humidity reservoir.
The CO₂ level is constantly monitored using dual beam infrared sensing technology. In the event of a drop in CO₂, audible and visual alarms are triggered, notifying the user of the error.
- Digital control of temperature and CO₂
- Personal sized, 13 x 14.5″ footprint (20L)
- Accepts bottles and flasks up to 2L
- Includes 2 stainless steel shelves (perforated to improve airflow)
- Dual beam, infrared sensor
- “Cal” function, for easy in-lab calibration of the temperature or CO₂
- Audible and visual alarms are triggered
- Vehicle power adapter for transportation of cells
- Once power has been disconnected, the incubator maintains temperature levels within 10% of the set parameter for up to 1 hour
- If disconnected from the CO₂ supply, CO₂ percentage decreases by approximately 1% per 30 min
The Benchmark Mini CO2 Shaking Incubator was designed specifically for culturing cells. This machine combines a precision CO2 incubation chamber, an orbital shaker, and a precise system for controlling CO2 density and heat distribution. Benchmark employed their proprietary technology to limit vibration for smooth orbital shaking and to also carefully control temperature via a 6-sided direct heating system that includes a heated door. The inside and outside of the Mini CO2 Shaking Incubator are optimized to maximize space by allowing stacking and minimizing the physical footprint.
