Areas of application for laboratory technicians

Laboratory lubricators are used in a wide range of applications. They are particularly indispensable when liquids are to be mixed in vessels. For example, platform scotches are important in medical examinations, but they are also used in the pharmaceutical industry:

  • Waste water and environmental analysis
  • Hmatology
  • Diagnostics
  • Biotechnology
  • Virology
  • Bacteriology
  • Microbiology

Since the areas of application are very diverse, there are accordingly many laboratory shuttles and shuttle methods (e.g. tumbling, rocking, rolling, circling or vibrating) with numerous functions.

Function of a laboratory shaker

Shakers are used in countless different laboratories and therefore fulfil just as many functions. Above all, however, laboratory scooters are used when the following applications are to be carried out:

  • Preparation of suspensions and emulsions
  • Mixtures of liquids (also of different densities)
  • Extraction or elution processes
  • Separation of nutrients from substrates
  • Cultivation of cell cultures or microorganisms
  • Homogenisation of suspensions
  • Suppression of sedimentation

The most important shakers at a glance:

With a shaker for your laboratory, the optimal preparation and mixing of samples is possible. To make it easier for you to choose, you will find information on our laboratory shakers below. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us by phone or e-mail – we are always there for you!

Horizontal shaker

The flat laboratory shakers can withstand even the most demanding requirements and also work quietly. Our range includes basic models for entry-level and simple requirements as well as horizontal shakers with numerous functional features for complex examinations. The horizontal back-and-forth movement ensures the ideal mixing of your samples.

Incubation shaker

Incubation shakers are used when a controlled growth atmosphere must be maintained for various substances during shaking. To regulate this, for example by maintaining a certain temperature or by generating photosynthetic light, incubation shakers are the right tools. Choose the right incubator according to the following criteria:

  • Capacity
  • Loading method
  • CO2 control
  • Temperature control
  • Type of installation (e.g. stackable)
  • Speed range
  • Photosynthetic light

Centrifugal Mixers

The practical centrifugal mixers are indispensable in many laboratories, for example, when whole blood is taken for hmatological findings or for mixing cell suspensions. Orbital shakers are also used in the cosmetics and industrial sectors, for example in the production of oils, cosmetics, varnishes and the like. When buying these devices, look for stability and quiet operation.

Platform scraper

Platform shakers are orbital shakers that use different supports or platforms to shake samples in different vessels. For example, different plates of a platform shaker are used for investigations with separating funnels or Erlenmeyer flasks. Often, a multi-section design is also available. In this way, the device allows gentle mixing processes with a relatively high load-bearing capacity of the platform.

Orbital shaker

Orbital shakers must be robust and stable to produce optimal results. This type of shuttle is more commonly used for general applications such as enzyme and tissue studies, testing biochemical reactions, fermentation or bacterial culture studies. In addition, the orbital shuttle is also suitable for adhesives, varnishes, paints, pigments and much more – a universally applicable laboratory instrument.

Test tube shaker

Test tube shakers use circular vibrating movements to ensure optimum mixing, even with solids. Intermittent and continuous operation are important functions. We also recommend an apparatus that does not spill anything even when the tubes are not sealed. Attachments for shaking plates and flasks extend the range of applications in laboratories for bacteriology, virology, biotechnology or diagnostics.

Numerous helpful functions ensure optimal adaptation to the requirements in your laboratory. Our online catalogue therefore contains a wide range of test tube shakers.

test tube shaker

For the analysis of soil samples such as sludge or waste water, this shaker is the right choice. Sedimentation, mixing, separation and preparation are all effortless with the overhead shaker. Constant and even rotary movements ensure gentle mixing of not only liquid but also powdery substances.

Rocking shaker

Our rocking shakers offer a choice of individual speed controls, tumbler frequencies and oscillating movements. Straightforward operation ensures fast and safe handling, so that the device can be used intuitively straight away. The long durability and load capacity ensure a reliable shaker for daily use in your laboratory. In our assortment we carry various rocking shakers from top brands such as Heidolph or BioSan.

Teeter Shakers

The rocking motion of these models makes them perfect for thicker liquids such as gels. The rocking motion also makes blotting methods possible for the examination of macromolecules such as RNA, DNA and proteins. Our compact models are also ideal for particularly convenient and flexible handling at different locations and have individually adjustable temperature and speed control, robust housings and much more.

Laboratory grinder-Zubehr

For the various fields of application, laboratory grinders are not only equipped with numerous different platforms, but are also available with every conceivable accessory. For example, there are clamping rollers for clamping vessels of any size, or trays with universal perforations for separating funnels and Erlenmeyer flasks. In addition, many manufacturers offer test tube and microplate racks, clamps and universal supports.

Selection criteria for laboratory bench tops

Depending on the workload in your laboratory, it is advisable to choose a shaker that allows you to work with different racks and flasks. For specific applications, it may be necessary to choose equipment with a variety of settings that allow for different temperature ranges and oscillating or shaking movements. In many cases, however, simple devices with basic functions will suffice. When making your choice, however, you should pay attention to the following criteria, which must be guaranteed in any case:

  • Stability
  • Load capacity and robust construction
  • suitable for long and continuous use
  • a basic choice of oscillating or shaking movements
  • Adjustment accuracy should be adapted to laboratory requirements

If you are still unsure about your choice, our team of experts will be happy to help you. In a non-binding consultation, we will clarify your needs and the suitable equipment. Simply give us a call or send us an e-mail.
