Thermoshakers - areas of application
Thermoshakers are a part of the equipment of every laboratory. Thermomixers are special items of laboratory equipment for the shaking, mixing and tempering of samples in laboratories of all kinds. Our thermo shakers and mixers by BioSan, DITABIS, HTA BioTec or Ingenieurbüro CAT M. Zipperer are in use in laboratories in the fields of research, biology, chemistry, medicine, pharmaceuticals or in industrial plants. Thermoshakers are used in medical diagnostics, microbiology, haematology, immuno- and cytochemistry, the food industry as well as in water and waste water analysis. For the optimum mixing of samples at constant temperatures and for special laboratory applications various types of thermoshakers, and in particular, thermomixers have been developed which bring together three separate items of laboratory equipment: incubator, shaker, mixer or homogeniser. As a result the processing times in the laboratory as speeded up considerably. For heating, but also cooling, shaking and mixing by way of a thermoshaker, various thermoblocks can be used for different sample vessels, such as microtitre plates, deep-well or PCR plates; microvessels, sample glasses, centrifuge tubes, vials or cuvettes.
Thermo Shaker - functions
Thermoshakers and mixers assume many different functions and tasks in the laboratory depending on the area of application, mixing/shaking movement, volumes used and modules. As stated, the primary functions of a ThermoMixer are the uniform distribution of temperature, optimum mixing and precise tempering of samples in different reaction vessels. For this purpose thermoshakers have special mixing functions such as tempering / heating and cooling functions which allow the mixing frequency, mixing orbit, temperature uniformity, temperature range, temperature adjusting range, cooling or heating rate to be set and regulated. Microprocessor-controlled ThermoMixers have various program functions: short-mix, timer, time function, processing time, tempering time, interval shaking, shaking and mixing frequency, tempering rate, temperature precision, calibration, target or actual value.
Thermoshaker - models
Thermo shakers and mixers come in various design and models dependent on the area of application, fittings, shaking/mixing type, temperature range, program functions, interchangeable modules and thermoblocks. In the laboratory there are often special requirements set for thermoshakers. We therefore offer the possibility of selecting the right thermomixer from among various models. In our range you will find a number of heating ThermoMixers such as the robust MHR 11 by DITABIS - as well as cooling and heating thermoshakers, for example the MKR 13 or MKR 23. In the BioSan TS-100 thermoshaker mixing takes place through circular movements. This thermoshaker is ideal for samples in reaction or PRC vessels. The TS-100C thermoshaker also provides the possibility of cooling the samples to + 4°C. For the shaking, mixing and tempering of several microtitre plates which are heated from both sides, the PST-60HL-4 is the thermoshaker of first choice.
Thermoshakers - accessories
Our robust thermo shakers and mixers are characterised by their precision and functionality as well as the possibility of interchanging thermoblocks or adding individual components. The large selection of accessories allows you to simply adapt the thermoshakers to the most varied of laboratory applications and reaction vessels. Depending on the manufacturer and model you can order different components and ThermoMixer or Thermoshaker accessories such as various blocks, adapters, microtitre plates, tempering hoods, tubes, vial and many other components for the thermoshakers and mixers we offer.
