What is orbital shaker?

Orbital shaker is a biochemical instrument that combines a temperature-controlled constant temperature water bath and oscillator, it is also commonly used in laboratory equipment, therefore, an orbital shaker is a kind of the lab shakers. Orbital shaker is widely used in cell or bacterial culture, hybridization, fermentation, biochemical reaction, enzyme, and research which have high requirements on temperature and oscillation frequency.
In addition, orbital shakers have circular vibration motion at low speeds (25-500 RPM). Some of its features are that it doesn't vibrate, and it produces low heat compared to other kinds of vibrators, making it ideal for growing microbes. In addition, due to its low temperature and vibration, it can be modified to create incubator shakers by placing them in incubators.
About orbital shaker incubator
Orbital shaker incubator can be thought of as a cross between an incubator and a shaker. It can be shaken while maintaining optimal conditions to grow microbes or replicate DNA. The device is useful because for the cell to grow, it needs oxygen and nutrients that need to be shaken so that they can be evenly distributed around the culture. Therefore, orbital shaker incubator is a derivative of orbital shaker.
Lab shaker is suitable for oscillation culture of various liquid and solid compounds such as biology, biochemistry, cells, bacteria, and so on in colleges and universities, oil chemical industry, health and epidemic prevention, environmental monitoring, and other scientific research departments.

How does an orbital shaker work?

Orbital shaker mainly consists of a group of driving mechanisms and a control system. Its working principle is through the panel adjusting knob speed regulation, set voltage, through PID closed-loop regulation system control, change the power supply voltage driving device work, so as to change the output speed of the motor, by the eccentric mechanism pulling the shaking table according to the set speed to do turnover or reciprocating movement.

Orbital shaker function

The main function of the orbital shaker is that it can shock any glassware which is loaded with a solution in the laboratory. A Laboratory shaker is a piece of ideal laboratory equipment for cultivating temperature-sensitive microorganisms with strong applicability and complete functions.

How to use and maintain orbital shaker?

Orbital shaker use
1. Load the test bottle and keep it balanced. If it is a dual-function orbital shaker, set the oscillation mode.

2. Switch on the power supply and set the timing time according to the machine surface scale. If orbital shaker needs to operate for a long time, please set the timer to "Normal".

3. Turn on the power switch and set the constant temperature:
* Put the small control switch in the "setting" section, adjust the knob, and set it to the temperature you need to work. The working temperature you set should be higher than the ambient temperature, when the machine starts heating, the yellow light will be on, otherwise, the machine will not work.
* Put the control part of the small switch in the "measurement" end, at this time, the display temperature is the actual temperature of the air in the test box, with the change of the air temperature in the box, the number displayed will change accordingly.
* When heating to your required temperature, heating will automatically stop, green indicator light; When the heat emission in the test chamber is lower than the temperature you set, a new round of heating will start.

4. Switch on the oscillating device: Turn on the oscillation switch on the control panel, the indicator lights up, then adjust the oscillation speed knob to the desired oscillation frequency.

5. After work, cut off the power supply and set the speed control knob and temperature control knob to a lower point.

6. Clean the machine after each use.
Orbital shaker maintenance
1. Appliances should be placed on a firm work surface, the environment should be clean and tidy, well ventilated.

2. The power sockets provided by users should be properly grounded.

3. It is strictly forbidden to move the machine during normal working hours.

4. Objects are strictly prohibited from striking the machine.

5. Children are strictly prohibited from approaching the machine in case of accidents.

6. Before replacing the fuse, ensure that the power supply is cut off.
