KT-TOS20 Orbital Shaker Incubator adopts DC brushless motor and microcomputer control technology, perfectly combine the air bath function and shaking function together. With total 7 platforms/trays for choice, it can mix and culture all kinds of samples in common flasks, petri dishes ,Elisa plates, beakers and etc.

Built–in microprocessor thermo controller provides constant temperature control in the incubator chamber. Variable speed, microprocessor control technology provides consistent, uniform shaking action. The LED display and translucent cover makes the whole sample processing status visible and controllable. It is extremely easy to operate, with very straightforward setup of temperature, speed and time.

  • Instantly display operation information(time, temperature and speed) on the LCD screen.
  • Gentle and reliable shaking with direct brushless DC motor.
  • Seven interchangeable platforms can be chosen for variety demands.Running safely –-heating and shaking will be automatically stopped once the lid is open.
  • Auto restart in case of power failure.
  • Over-heating protection device is included. 
  • Built-in temperature calibration function.
  • Compact, only 421mmx320mm(DXW)

Q: Is it possible to use the appliance for media heating in Petri dishes?

  • Yes, it can be used for media heating in Petri dishes which must be covered to prevent drying. It has the auto temperature calibration function.

Q: Does the maximum load include the weight of the platform and mat ?

  • The maximum load capacity of KT-TOS20 does not include the weight of platform/tray and mat. The basic setting of the machine does not include tray.

Q: What is orbital shaker incubator?

  • A shaker incubator is a lab instrument that perfectly combines the function of sample incubate and shaking function together. It can incubate and shake samples simultaneously. It’s temperature heating function can be calibrate, speed is variable too.
  • A shaker incubator can shake with different shaking motion. An orbital shaker incubator has a circular shaking motion with low to high speed with less vibrations. It is an ideal lab instrument for labs require general-purpose shaking applications in cell culture, bacterial growth and suspension, staining and washing procedures.

Q: What is an orbital shaker used for?

  • A shaker incubator is an ideal lab instrument for labs require general-purpose shaking applications in cell culture, bacterial growth and suspension, staining and washing procedures.

Q: How do you use orbital shaking incubator?

Using an orbital shaking incubator properly will ensure you get the best results of your application and extend its lifespan.
The suggested standard operating procedure is as follows:
1) . Make sure the machine is seated evenly and firmly. An uneven surface could cause damage as the machine can vibrate when rotate at high speed.
2) Put/Install tray in the chamber. Some trays need to be fixed by screws. For Elisa plate/ deep-well plate, should insert the elisa plate into platform, then press the plate vertically to ensure smooth installation.
3) Close the chamber cover.
4) Power on.
5) Basic operation: procedures selecting; temperature setting; speed setting; time setting.
6) The machine start working. When finished running, system will stop running automatically, and displays current temperature.
8) Power off,open the cover and take out the sample.
9) Cut off the power supply,clean the machine.

Q: Why is shaker incubator used?

  • Cell culture requires a suitable growth environment and growth temperature, which requires the selection of a suitable shaker for assistance. A shaker incubator is mainly used for shaking & culture of various liquid and solid compounds such as biology, biochemistry, cells, strains, etc.

Q: What is the difference between rotary shaker and orbital shaker?

  • The only difference is they shake in different ways. A rotary shaker shaking by rotating through 180° of arc. While an orbital shaker provides a circular shaking motion.
