Orbital shaker can be used within an incubator without disturbing precise environmental conditions. The shaker can be used within a 37°C CO2 incubator and controlled externally via remote control. The shaker is suitable for biological, chemical, liquid mixing and cell cultivation in an array of laboratory settings. It has a long-lasting brushless DC motor that provides silent operation and consistent shaking speed independent of the load or power supply fluctuations. Operation is controlled using easy-to-turn rotary dials. Timer and speed are indicated on discrete LED displays. Open air orbital shaker models are also available, with both brushed and brushless motors.
