A bench-top shaker you can depend on
When you see the BioShake XP in action, you’ll understand why it is now one of the most popular plate shakers in Europe. With a footprint no bigger than 2 microplates side-by-side, its near indestructible design promises years of hassle free mixing. And its over-the-top performance guarantees well-mixed samples in a variety of tube and plate types. Buckle in your plates, they’re in for a satisfying ride.

The science of mixology
German designed and manufactured, BioShake Plate Mixers offer an, ultra-efficient, totally controlled shaking axisl so that samples in a fraction of the time of competing systems. The orbital shaking is so precisely controlled, in fact, that you need never spin down your plates after mixing. Even , or low sample volumes, offer no obstacle for these precision tools. Fully adjustable between 200 rpm and 3000 rpm, well beyond the speeds of most other brands, for tubes, glass vials or across an entire 1536-well microplate. Discover why BioShake Plate Mixer’s are without peer in the industry.

Your samples will never know what shook them
To say that BioShake Plate Mixers are whisper quiet is not an overstatement. These devices are intended to shake tubes only and mix their contents – not vibrate the entire lab bench or robotic deck. A large part of the noise reduction is derived from a patented dampening system that relies upon ingenious counter-weight symmetry. Your eyes will see a blur, but your ears won’t believe it.

Additional Information

Utilizing a quick change sample block design, the BioShake iQ can accept microfuge tubes (0.2, 0.5, 1.5 and 2.0 ml), glass vials (2 ml and 4 ml) and microplates (96-, 384- and 1536-well microplates of deep-well, v-well and u-well shape).

Indicated above is the required mixing speeds [rpm] on BioShake Plate Mixers for different micro plates depending on the percentage of “filling” volume in each well.

12 µl aqueous samples were mixed in a 384-well flat bottomed microplate on the BioShake XP. Outlined in yellow, 1700 rpm is the slowest speed needed to initiate mixing of such a small volume. Outlined green, 2900 rpm is the speed required to provide maximal mixing as measured by the apex of the wave front. Imaged using super slow-motion videography.
