Areas of application for laboratory shakers

Laboratory shakers are used in countless areas. They are particularly essential when liquids need to be mixed in vessels. Platform shakers are important for medical examinations, for example, but are also used in:

  • Waste water and environmental analysis

  • haematology

  • diagnostics

  • biotechnology

  • virology

  • Bacteriology

  • microbiology

As the areas of application are very diverse, there are correspondingly many laboratory shakers and shaking methods (e.g. tumbling, rocking, rolling, circling or vibrating) with numerous functions.

Function of a lab shaker

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

  • Production of suspensions and emulsions

  • Mixtures of liquids (also of different densities)

  • Extraction or elution processes

  • Dissolving nutrients from substrates

  • Cultivation of cell cultures or microorganisms

  • Homogenization of suspensions

  • Prevention of sedimentation

The most important shakers at a glance:

With a shaker for your laboratory, you can achieve optimum preparation, separation and mixing of samples with circular shaking motion. To make your selection easier, you will find information on our laboratory shakers below. If you have any further questions, please contact us by phone or e-mail - we are always here for you!

Horizontal shakers

The flat shakers reliably withstand even 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 tests. The horizontal back-and-forth movement ensures the ideal mixing of your samples.

Incubation shakers

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 used. Incubation shakers are the right devices to use. Select the appropriate shaker according to the following criteria:

  • Capacity

  • Loading type

  • CO2 control

  • Temperature control

  • Installation type (e.g. can be set up or stacked)

  • Speed range (slow speed to high speeds)

  • Photosynthetic light

Circular shaker

The practical centrifugal mixers are indispensable in many laboratories - for example, when whole blood is taken for hematological findings or for mixing cell suspensions. They are also used in the cosmetics and industrial sectors. Circular shakers are also used in the cosmetics and industrial sectors - for the production of oils, cosmetics, paints, etc. When purchasing these devices, pay attention to stability and quiet operation.

Platform shakers

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

Orbital shakers

Orbital shakers must be robust and stable in order to produce optimum results. This shaker is used more for general applications, for example for enzyme and tissue studies, testing biochemical reactions, fermentation or examining bacterial cultures. In addition, the orbital shaker is also suitable for adhesives, varnishes, paints, pigments and much more - a universally applicable laboratory device.

Test tube shaker

Test tube shakers use circular vibrating movements to ensure optimum mixtures - even with solids or culture flasks. Intermittent and continuous operation are important functions, and an apparatus that does not spill anything even when the tubes are uncapped is also recommended. Attachments for shaking plates and flasks extend the range of applications in laboratories for bacteriology (bacterial suspensions for example), virology, biotechnology or diagnostics. Numerous helpful functions ensure optimum adaptation to the requirements in your laboratory. Our online catalog therefore contains a wide range of Test tube shakers

Overhead shakers

This shaker is the right choice for analyzing soil samples such as sludge or waste water. Sedimentation, mixing, separation and preparation are successful with the overhead shaker effortlessly. Constant and uniform rotary movements ensure gentle mixing of not only liquid but also powdery substances.

Wobble shaker

Our wobble shakers offer a selection of individual speed controls, wobble frequencies and oscillating movements. Straightforward operation ensures fast and safe handling, so that the device can be used intuitively straight away. The long service life and load capacity ensure you have a reliable shaker for daily use in your laboratory. Our product range includes various wobble shakers from top brands such as Heidolph and BioSan.

Rocking shakers

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

Lab shaker accessories

Shakers in the laboratory are not only equipped with numerous different platforms for the various areas of application, 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 separatory funnels and Erlenmeyer flasks. Many manufacturers also offer test tube and microplate racks, holding clamps and universal attachments.

Selection criteria for laboratory shakers

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

  • Stability

  • resilience and robust design

  • Suitable for long and continuous use

  • A basic selection of oscillating or shaking movements

  • Setting accuracy should be adapted to the requirements in the laboratory

If you are still undecided about your choice, our team of experts will be happy to help you. In a non-binding consultation, we will clarify your requirements and the appropriate devices.
