Lab Companion SK-71 shakers (open air) from GMI

GMI is proud to offer our range of brand new Lab Companion Incubating and refrigerating benchtop shakers as part of our brand new range.

Lab Companion SK-71 shakers (open air) from GMI

Lab Companion refrigerating and non refrigerating benchtop incubators shakers and shakers can perform a number of general applications including molecular biology plant and animal cells culture fermentation (pharmacy and biotech- DNA and Enzymes hybridization studies environmental technology (waste water and soil analysis) medical research special chemical production generic research and drug discovery protocols and microbiology (food and public health aids).

All Lab companion shaker models perform dual- action orbital and reciprocating motion in one unit. Simply interchange the motions by converting the way of platform connection. Lab Companion's multi-function shaking system allows intensive multi-function shaking system which surpasses all previous leads of experience! You can multi-set the shaking motions in a maximum of six ways of Forward/Backward/ Pause/ Mix and match upon your various laboratory process.

Lab Companion allows for convenient and unique shaking functions. Lab Companion shakers always stop at the same position even though operators stop the unit any position that allows for semi-automated sampling or dosing to be added without manual setting every time.

These sensitive shaking systems also give a very stable low speed shaking motion between 19 through 25 rpm the 10 rpm would be used extensively for low damage biological mixing tests and cells cultivation.

The SI model range of digital incubating/ refrigerating benchtop shakers combines a benchtop incubator /refrigerator with dual- action in orbital and reciprocating shakers. The units fulfill a variet of molecular biology general incubating and cell culture applications. These Digital incubating/ refrigerating benchtop shakers are available in a number of models each with primary variation in dimensions and size.
