Product Description

The Benchmark Scientific BT30 Orbi-Blotter low speed orbital shaker uses 115V at speeds between 3 to 70rpm, and has a speed control knob for continuous operation, an orbital motion range of 19mm (0.75"), a large platform with non-slip rubber mat, and a maintenance-free brushless motor. This shaker features a gentle orbital motion with speed control from 3rpm for low-speed applications such as blotting, washing, and staining/destaining. The 14 x 12 inches (W x D) platform has a flat, non-slip rubber mat for holding trays, dishes, plates, and other flat-bottomed vessels. (W is width, the horizontal distance from left to right; D is depth, the horizontal distance from front to back.) An optional stacking platform (sold separately) increases the work surface. The durable, brushless motor is capable of loads up to 4kg and is safe for use in cold rooms and incubators.

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.

bought this model and it stopped working within 8 hours- blew its internal fuse and then stopped working altogether. Got a replacement from the company and THAT blew the outlet fuse and then would only come on full speed. these are ~$600 pieces of crap.
