Labnet VorTemp™ 56 Shaking Incubators
- Shake and incubate samples simultaneously
- Complete with interchangeable platforms for microtubes and microplates
- Intelligent, digital control
- Broad temperature and speed range
Designed for simultaneous heating and mixing of small samples, the VorTemp 56 and 1550 features interchangeable platforms for microtubes and microplates (Model 56), included. Temperature is adjustable over a broad range, making the unit useful for a variety of applications, including bacterial cultures in tubes and microplates and digestions. Mechanical convection provides a uniform and stable environment within the chamber. The VorTemp 56 may also be used in the cold room for sub-ambient applications.
Shaking speed, as well as acceleration rates, are adjustable. Acceleration can be set to three different levels to protect delicate samples. A microprocessor controls all parameters including temperature and timed operation. Self diagnostic software continuously monitors the unit for proper temperature and shaking speed, alerting the user to any errors.
Heating and shaking are controlled by feedback loops which precisely maintain chosen parameters, independent of load or voltage fluctuations. The sturdy construction of the VorTemp 56 gives it stability during high speed shaking. Speed range is 200 to 1,200 rpm. The chamber is insulated to maintain temperature and reduce operating noise. Circular orbits have radius of 3 mm. Timer can be set from one to 99 minutes or continuous.
