The Benchmark Scientific B3D-STACK-D small stacking platform has a dimpled autoclavable mat and is used with Benchmark Scientific 3-dimensional shakers. The platform measures 10.5 x 7.5 inches (W x D) and provides a 2.75-inch separation between levels. (W is width, the horizontal distance from left to right; D is depth, the horizontal distance from front to back.) The platform is an accessory to expand the work surface for the B3D1008 BenchRocker 3D gyratory rocker and the B3D1020 MiniMixer 3-Dimensional shaker.
Laboratory shakers agitate liquids during laboratory procedures. These devices can be analog or digital and are typically an automated, electrically powered, countertop unit that shakes liquid in lab containers, such as flasks, funnels, or test tubes. Some shakers can operate inside fume hoods, incubators, refrigerators, or other laboratory devices, and can include controls for the frequency and/or degree of movement. The types of shakers include: orbital, rocking, rolling, rotating, and wrist action. The most common orbital shaker provides a smooth, continuous, circular motion, sometimes with a tilt angle, for uniform mixing of contents. The rocking shaker creates gentle uniform mixing with a see-saw, or up and down, motion. Reciprocating, or rolling, shakers provide a horizontal side-to-side motion with simple agitation of samples. A rotating, or rotisserie, shaker provides samples with a rotating action that moves in a circular motion. Wrist-action shakers duplicate the effect of hand mixing with "arms" on each side of the unit. Some shakers have the ability to incubate or refrigerate samples while providing shaking action.
Benchmark Scientific manufactures sterilization and temperature control equipment, centrifuges and mixers, and other laboratory products. The company, founded in 2008, is headquartered in South Plainfield, NJ.
