This combined shaker and incubator is ideal for scientists doing cell culturing procedures, especially suspension culture applications. The shaker provides an orbital shaking motion, adjustable between 30 to 300rpm with a gentle start action. The shaking speed is microprocessor controlled and set via the digital LED control panel. The incubator also incorporates a versatile digital timer which can be set from 1 second to 9 days. After the timer has counted down the shaking action will stop and an alert will sound, as a safety feature the incubator will continue to run.
The SI500 also features a USB connection and dedicated software to enable long term monitoring of the incubator temperature, i.e. over weekends.
