Shaking Incubators - The Combined Power of an Incubator and a Shaker in One
Shaking incubators are designed to simultaneously incubate and shake or agitate samples. They are ideal for cell culture, cell aeration and solubility experiments, or labs carrying these types of research. One of the primary benefits of a shaking incubator is that if you regularly require the combination of shaking and incubating then having a dedicated shaking incubator removed the requirement to place a separate shaker inside your incubator. Instead, you have one dedicated piece of equipment for incubating and shaking your samples, simplifying the process and improving control over the process.
If your shaker is a separate piece of equipment placed inside the incubator you will need to open the incubator every time you need to adjust the shaking settings, thus temporarily losing your set temperature. However, controlling the shaking action from outside of the incubation unit allows you to maintain your set temperature while adjusting shaking parameters. As well as maintaining temperature, if you are controlling the gaseous atmosphere inside the incubator then it is also important to keep your incubator closed at all times to maintain this environment.
Pipette.com carries a broad selection of shaking incubators combining various features, sizes and styles. Below are some things to consider when selecting your shaking incubator:
Pipette.com offers shaking incubators of varying capacities and sizes. Choosing which unit is the right size for your lab depends on many factors and personal preferences. Some important points to consider are what you will need to incubate and shake, how many samples you will need to incubate, the throughput of samples you require, how many people will be using the unit, and will you need the shaking feature in your incubator.
Do you need to control CO2, humidity, sterilizing, or UV lights when incubating your particular samples or cell types?
What temperature range do you need? Are the substances you will be incubating sensitive to different types of heating technology?
Do you require a digital interface?
