ES-20/80, Orbital Shaker-Incubator


ES-20/80 shaker-incubator for biotechnological and pharmaceutical laboratories is a professional category equipment. The typical applications include - microbial and cell culture cultivation, protein expression, solubility studies, general mixing, as well as other various applications in the fields of biology and chemistry.

The unit is equipped with a newly developed triple eccentric mechanism for platform motion that provides supreme balancing characteristics, superior reliability and quiet operation. The achieved stability of the unit during vigorous mixing allows for stacking installation of up to 3 units which enables to save space. The new display and easy to use user interface provide a clear and intuitive control of parameters and also allow data logging, storage and display over time. Additional features like out of balance sensor and automatic thermostat failure detection make this shaker-incubator an advanced and safe product. Bluetooth connectivity to PC allows for data management, data logging, parameter control and profiling in a dedicated software that can be requested separately.

A built-in heat-resistant brushless fan provides precise temperature distribution inside the chamber (from 10 °C above ambient up to +80 °C). Additionally, excellent sample temperature uniformity of ±0.3 °C at 37 °C is achieved. The inner chamber is made of stainless steel. State-of-the-art motor, thermal insulation materials and parameter PIDcontrol decrease the energy consumption and make the shaker-incubator highly energy efficient despite its relatively large size.
