Incubators are devices that maintain a temperature and other conditions to grow cell cultures or microbiological cultures. As such, they are extensively used in microbiology and molecular biology and biochemistry labs. Many incubators also control humidity and are incorporated with a gentle shaking function to homogenise samples during culturing. The size depends on the application, required volumes, and desired numb (more)er of samples that needs to fit simultaneously. Some incubators are so small that they easily fit on a laboratory bench, while others are huge and can hold an enormous number of flasks or vials.

LAUDA VS 45 OI shaking incubator-cover
LAUDA VS 45 OI shaking incubator

Varioshake shaking incubators for reliable mixing, shaking and temperature control -Up to 70°C -Orbi (more)tal movement -Stability ± 0.2°C -Three display control panel with separate controls for mixing, stirring and temperature Applications: homogenization, incubation, fermentation or chemical and biochemical reactions. These LAUDA tools are renowned for being extremely reliable and suitable for heavy use. Specialized in gentle mixing and vigorous shaking, these shaking incubators are used for applications that require repeatable orbital movements and temperatures up to +70°C with excellent stability. They are preferred by standard or research laboratories for incubation, fermentation, homogenization, chemical and biochemical reactions, enzyme and tissue studies, as well as for the cultivation of bacterial cultures. The control panel features soft-touch keys with clear symbols. It will therefore be very easy to set the temperature, the stirring frequency or the incubation time quickly and precisely, rest assured that the technology of these instruments will exactly reproduce the set values. The temperature -Temperature regulation is controlled by a microprocessor, PID type with RS232 interface. -The temperature distribution is optimal throughout the interior of the cabinet. -Temperature setting and display: digital, LED, in 0.1°C increments. -Temperature range: from 8°C above ambient temperature to +70°C. -Temperature range (with cooling coil; not included): 20 to 70°C, depending on the cooling medium used and the ambient temperature. -Electronic monitoring of the temperature controllers activates visual and acoustic alarms in the event of a fault. In these cases the heating switches off automatically and the cause of the anomaly is shown on the display. Agitation and Incubation -Quiet and robust stirring mechanism with gentle start and smooth, load-independent orbital motion -The orbital motion can be turned on and off -Shaking frequency and incubation time can be set thanks to the microprocessor. -The timer continuously displays the remaining incubation time and acoustically signals its expiration. Specific features of the VS 45 OI model This model, with a liftable acrylic glass cover, consists of an external housing made of electrolytically galvanized and powder-coated sheet steel. The vibrating platform, made of aluminum, has 4 plastic pins to accommodate a vibrating tray or a universal support. -Temperature stability ± 0.2°C -Shaking frequency: 20 to max. 250 min-1 -Stirring width: 30 mm -Usable volume 45 L -Shaking frequency min. 20 min-1 -Shaking frequency max. 250 min-1 -Amplitude of shaking 25 mm -Load capacity max. 12 kg -Timer from 1 minute to 999 -Vibrating platform width 450 mm -Vibrating platform depth 300 mm -Capacity approx. 45 L / 2 stirring trays
