Ohaus Thermal Shake Touch

Category Vortexers
Manufacturer Ohaus
Country of manufacture the United States

Thermal Shakers are designed for applications that require consistent and precise high-speed shaking with temp. control to 100°C. With heating & shaking capabilities, our shakers use interchangeable blocks to accommodate tubes & microplates. Intuitive LCD touchscreen allows the user to save & track progress of 5 user-defined programs, each with 5 individual steps. Enhanced electronics provide dependable temp. settings across the operating range.


  • Program control capabilities allow user programmable operation for automated use and memory. Storage for five separate, 5-step programs, or unlimited if using the USB.
  • Enhanced electronics provide accurate and dependable temperature settings across the operating range. Cooling models utilize dual temperature sensors to reach temperatures down to 17°C below ambient.
  • Program control capabilities allow user programmable operation for automated use and memory. Storage for five separate, 5-step programs, or unlimited if using the USB.

Operating Features:

  • Low Profile Design: The low profile design minimizes the unit’s footprint on the bench.
  • LCD Touch Screen: Enables faster setting of temperature, speed, and time which can all be viewed at once.
  • Display features on-screen help topics with operational tips available in six languages. Touch screen is compatible with rubber gloves used in labs. USB port can transfer information to a flash drive for data logging, program storage and software updates.
  • Program Control: Program control capabilities allow user programmable operation for automated use and memory. Storage for five separate 5-step programs, or unlimited number of programs with the use of the USB.
  • Temperature ramp rate: Adjustable temperature ramp rate feature separately defines the heating and cooling rate in increments of 0.5°C/min.
  • Single Point Calibration Mode: For maximum temperature accuracy, the single point calibration procedure allows the user to calibrate up to 6 different user defined temperatures.
  • Pulse Mode Feature: The unit is equipped with a pulse mode feature for quick vortex applications.

Safety Features:

  • Cool Touch Housing: Constructed from a high-quality, heat and chemical resistant polymer. The unit’s housing remains cool to the touch throughout normal operating temperatures.
  • Maximum Temperature Limiting Function: Ensures the temperature will not exceed preset limits, allowing the user control of temperature sensitive samples.
  • Hot Top Indicator: A hot top warning light will illuminate when the temperature reaches 40°C, and will remain lit until the unit is sufficiently cooled.
  • Audible Alarm: In timed mode, an alarm will sound when the time reaches zero or set-point temperature is reached. Additionally, the heat function will automatically shut off if the unit recognizes an internal issue.

    Applications: Cell cultures, DNA, RNA, and protein studies
