The Talboys Advanced 1000RS rocking platform shaker has a speed range of 1 to 50 rpm; a platform with a rubber nonslip mat that holds culture plates, media bottles, and Erlenmeyer flasks with a total weight of 10lb.; digital control and LED readout of speed, time, and tilt angle; timed operation up to 160 hours; and a platform tilt angle adjustable from 0 to 15 degrees for gentle to moderately vigorous two-dimensional agitation. The sealed ball bearings and brushless DC motor require no maintenance, and a speed ramping feature reduces the possibility of splashing. When the set time has elapsed, an alarm sounds and the platform stops moving, or the unit can be set for continuous operation. This shaker is used in a variety of laboratory procedures, including cell culture, hematology, and chemical mixing.
This laboratory shaker has audible and visual alarms that activate if a platform obstruction or overload is detected. It has an allowable ambient temperature range of -10 to +60 degrees C (14 to 140 degrees F), and is suitable for cold rooms, incubators, and carbon dioxide environments.

H is height, the vertical distance from the lowest to highest point; W is width, the horizontal distance from left to right; D is depth, the horizontal distance from front to back.
Laboratory shakers agitate liquids for biological and chemical procedures by repetitively moving the vessels holding the liquids. The types of vessels include glass or plastic bottles, flasks, tubes, and microplates. Shakers are categorized by the type of movement used, which can be orbital (circular), reciprocating, vibrating, rocking, waving (gyrating), rotating (rotisserie), or wrist-action. Typically a shaker will have analog or digital controls for setting the speed and sometimes also the degree of movement. Some shakers have the ability to incubate or refrigerate samples during shaking. Shakers are used in a variety of laboratory procedures, including hemolysis, preparation of emulsions and suspensions, staining, and cell cultivation.
