SI500 and SI600 Series Incubator, Orbital Shaker
These combined shaker and incubators are ideal for scientists doing cell culturing procedures, especially suspension culture applications. Both units are compact enough to be positioned on the laboratory bench.
The shaker provides an orbital shaking motion, adjustable between 30 to 300rpm with a gentle start action. The shaking speed is microprocessor controlled and set via the digital LED control panel. The incubator also incorporates a versatile digital timer which can be set from 1 second to 9 days. After the timer has counted down the shaking action will stop and an alert will sound, as a safety feature the incubator will continue to run.
The incubators feature smoked acrylic windows in the door and to both sides to allow easy visibility of the samples. The incubators temperature is set via a separate bright LED display, encoder control ensures that the temperature can be quickly set between ambient temperature +5°C and 60°C. Forced air circulation ensures uniform heating of the load.
Both Incubators have a versatile clamping system which secures most sizes and mixtures of flask up to 1 litre on the SI500 and 2 litre on the SI600. Typically, the SI500 platform will accommodate the following Erlenmeyer flasks: 12 x 250 ml, or 9 x 500 ml or 6 x 1000 ml while the SI600 can accommodate the following: 6 x 2000ml, 9 x 1000ml or 15 x 500ml.
