TS-100C, Thermo-Shaker with cooling for microtubes and PCR plates


Thermo–Shaker TS-100C provides intensive mixing and temperature control of samples in microtest tubes or PCR plate. This model of Thermo–Shaker differs from TS-100 with a possibility of cooling samples down to +4°C. Features of TS-100C meet the highest expectations of users according to many parameters:

  1. Fast reaching of specified mixing speed and maintenance of equal amplitude of rotation throughout the Thermo–Shaker block;
  2. Stability of maintaining the preset temperature in a wide range throughout the Thermo–Shaker’s block surface;
  3. LCD display indicates preset and current values of temperature, speed and time of operation;
  4. Quiet motor operation, compact size, prolonged service life.

Functions of heating and mixing can be performed both simultaneously and independently.

There are five heating and cooling blocks available, including a block with a plastic lid for the PCR-plates. All blocks are mutually interchangeable and can be easily installed on Thermo–Shaker.

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.
