  • For work with a load of up to 4 kg
  • Triple drive
  • Microprocessor-controlled stable shaking
  • Two speed ranges
  • Two sizes of shaking orbit

OHAUS' Light Duty shakers are designed to handle loads up to 4 kg. Two speed ranges are available, and two sizes of shaking orbit. The following models are offered:

  • a digital model designed for use with microplates,
  • two digital models designed for use with accessories
  • an economical non-digital model for everyday use.

All models are equipped with triple eccentric drives that guarantee stable microprocessor-controlled shaking, resulting in reliable shaking. They are perfect for, ELISA test preparation, cell culture, immunoassays, protein testing, bacterial and yeast culture, staining/decolorization, as well as labeling techniques or DNA testing.

Benefits of the device:

  • Designed to flexibly fit your applications - OHAUS Light Duty shakers come with a ready-to-use tray that can be customized with more than 20 easy-to-install accessories, and a removable mat.
  • A powerful and economical unit for everyday laboratory applications requiring shaking. The non-digital model offers reliable shaking over the entire speed range thanks to its rugged triple eccentric drive design.
  • The microplate shaker is designed to safely accommodate up to 4 microplates or well plates, or to allow for easy installation of 2 microtube racks. The unit slowly increases the speed to the desired value, which prevents the sample from spilling outside the vessel.
