TS-100, Thermo-Shaker for microtubes and PCR plates


Thermo–Shaker TS-100 provides intensive mixing and temperature control of samples in microtest tubes or PCR plate. Functions of heating (up to +100°C) and mixing can be performed both simultaneously and independently, i.e. the unit implements three devices in one:

1. Shaker;
2. Dry–block Thermostat;
3. Thermo–Shaker.

TS-100 is used for DNA analysis sample preparation, for extraction of proteins, polysaccharides, lipids and other cellular components. Features of TS-100 meet the increased requirements of the user, including:

  • Quickly reaches the set mixing speed and maintains same amplitude of rotation around the block;
  • Stable maintenance of the temperature of a wide range over the entire surface of the block;
  • LCD display shows the set and actual temperature, speed and time;
  • Quiet engine operation, compact size, long service life.

Heating source is a printed heating board (12 V). Mixing is provided by movement of orbital type.

The instrument is applicable in:

  • Genetic analysis — in extraction of DNA, RNA and further sample preparation;
  • Biochemical study of enzymatic reactions and processes;
  • Extraction of metabolites from cellular material.

Temperature Calibration Function

With the help of the temperature calibration function the user can calibrate the unit approx. ±6% of the selected temperature to compensate differences in the thermal behaviour of tubes from different manufacturers.

Frequently asked questions

Are there any blocks for Deep well plates?

No, there are no blocks for deep well plates for this instrument. TS-100 is designed to provide high temperature uniformity, stability and accuracy in microtubes and PCR plates. Please, see TS-DW, Thermo-Shaker for deep well plates

Is any block included in the standard supply set?

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

Can I order a custom block?

Biosan can consider such possibility based on customer requirements and quantities.

Does it have a temperature calibration function?

Yes, it does. Calibration procedure is described in the user manual point 5. See manual below in downloads section.
