ES-20/60, Orbital Shaker-Incubator


Orbital Shaker–Incubator ES-20/60 for biotechnological and pharmaceutical laboratories is a professional category equipment designed for cultivation of microorganisms and eukaryotic cells including animal, plant and insect cells. It is also possible to cultivate thermofilic bacteria in ES-20/60 shaker-incubator.

Shaker is equipped with a direct-drive mechanism for platform motion. It provides reliable and stable operation for the long term experiments needed for cell growth.

Shaker–Incubator ES-20/60 provides smooth or intensive mixing in flasks installed on the platform.

Built-in noiseless thermoresistant brushless fan provides precise temperature distribution inside the chamber (adjustable for up to +80°C). The inner chamber is made of stainless steel. State–of–the–art motor, newest thermal insulation materials, soft-start of the platform motion and temperature PID–control decrease the energy consumption and make the Shaker–Incubator highly energy efficient despite its relatively large size.

Frequently asked questions

Is any platform included in the standard supply set?

We offer 5 platforms you can choose from to select best suited for your application. Platforms should be ordered separately.

Is it possible to use ES-20/60 as an incubator without shaking function?

Yes, it is possible. Press corresponding buttons ▼ ▲ RPM and set the desired speed or turn off shaking by setting the value "000" on the display.

Does the maximum load include the weight of the platform and mat ?

Declared maximum load applies on useful load + platform weight it is necessary to take into account the weight of the platform and mat.
