Shakers and Rockers

 Stuart Shakers and Rockers

Stuart Shakers are available with either an orbital action where the platform moves in a circular orbit or a reciprocating linear movement where the platform moves back and forth horizontally. An orbital action provides a swirling action on the sample, ideal for aeration. A linear shaker is more aggressive making it ideal for applications such as extractions. flask shakers apply the movement directly to the sample vessel, rather than via a platform. The sample vessel, typically a flask or bottle, is clamped around the neck and shaken in a pivotal motion. This mimics the type of aggressive shaking action that would be generated when the flask is shaken by hand. For example you could use this piece of equipment during a solvent extraction. The microtitre plate shakers are specifically designed to provide a fast mixing action about a tight obit ideal for mixing microtitre plates. The flask shakers offers a mechanical simulation of hand shaking flasks, for instance during extractions.

 

 

Stuart Rockers utilize either a see saw action, where the platform rocks on a central point, or a gentler 3D gyratory action where the platform moves in a three dimensional motion about the central point. A see saw action provides a wave motion in the sample, ideal for washing. A 3D gyratory action very gently swirls the sample making it ideal for delicate cell culturing, staining and de-staining procedures etc. In some cases a tier system is available where magnetic platforms can be stacked to increase capacity, without increasing the footprint.

SKU# SSM1

Mini-scale orbital shaker

 

  • Smooth orbital shaking action
  • Orbit of 16mm is ideal for larger samples, for example multi well plates
  • Built-in digital timer
  • Variable speed control to 300rpm
  • Supplied with non-slip mat for multi-well plates etc.
  • Optional accessory cradle system for flasks and bottles

The compact SSM1 provides a smooth uniform circular motion with an orbit of 16mm. It is supplied with a non-slip mat that can hold up to four multi-well plates or diagnostic cards. The shaking action is ideal for samples of 0.5 to 5ml held in multi well plates, dishes and Petri dishes. 

The shaker can be used in incubators and environmental chambers (up to 40°C and 80% humidity). Alternatively, an accessory cradle system is available that can accommodate a variety of vessels including flasks, bottles or beakers via four rubber securing bars. It turns the SSM1 into a very effective mini platform shaker. It will hold up to: 4 x 250ml or 2 x 500ml or 1 x 1000ml Erlenmeyer 8 flasks or bottles. These larger vessels are held between the rubber bars. The flexible cradle system has the benefit that different combinations of vessels can be used offering maximum versatility. 
Speed is variable from 30 to 300 rpm. Once set on the digital display, the shaking speed is effectively maintained even over long periods of time. Shaking times can be set to run for 1 to 999 minutes on the built-in digital timer, or the unit can be set for continuous operation.

The SSL1 has all the features of the SSM1 but in a larger unit. The SSL1 also comes complete with a cradle system, rather than a non slip mat, to comfortably hold flasks. The cradle type platform has four rubber cushioned horizontal securing bars with quick release handles. They can be easily adjusted both vertically and horizontally to hold most sizes and types of vessel, including flasks, bottles and beakers. For example, they will accommodate the following Erlenmeyer flasks or bottles: 12 x 250ml or 9 x 500ml or 6 x 1000ml or 2 x 2000ml.
The main advantage of this cradle system is that it can accommodate different sizes of vessel, a common requirement where shakers are used by different people in the laboratory.
