The Orbi-Shaker™ CO2 has been upgraded to include a new, full color TOUCH screen control panel. It is designed for shaking, mixing and aeration applications inside of incubated and humidified environments, including CO2 incubators. It can withstand temperatures from 0 to 60°C and humidity levels up to 100%.

The Orbi-Shaker™ CO2 allows users to simply place the shaker into the incubated environment of their choosing.  This simpler configuration offers a significant cost savings over incubated shakers.

To avoid contamination, unintentional release of gas or deviations from protocol, both speed and time are set via the included remote control module. The remote control allows the user to set and adjust the shaker settings without opening the incubator door.

The Orbi-Shaker CO2 is supplied with a non-slip platform. For other platform options, see this page.  MAGic Clamp™ platforms are also available, enabling easy, immediate attachment and detachment of Erlenmeyer flasks and test tube racks with a magnetic-based system.  To learn more about MAGic Clamp, click here.
