Laboratory Shakers Resource Guide

Adding precision to your mixing needs

Laboratory shakers feature prominently in biomedical laboratories where they are often used for mixing, blending, and agitating chemicals as well as other substances. Shakers aim to homogenize, disperse, and mix samples while offering users precise control over the agitation process. The resulting sample is expected to be uniform in composition and free of clumps or other imperfections that may negatively influence the accuracy of test results.

Modern lab shakers are precision tools equipped with several features to help establish a controlled environment that caters to the specific and diverse mixing needs of researchers in laboratories across various disciplines. While there is a wide array of options for shakers in the market, they generally feature low-speed, high-torque motors that facilitate the orbital or reciprocal motion to ensure proper and thorough mixing with the necessary power and control for sensitive samples.

A crucial tool for applications surrounding cell cultures, chemical reactions, and biological extractions, lab shakers help streamline workflows and contribute to robust, reliable, and reproducible experimental results. Knowing how to select the right shaker that meets all of your laboratory requirements can help increase efficiency, productivity, and accuracy in your workflows and experimental results.
