Three interchangeable platforms (available separately) accommodate a variety of sample containers to make the Orbit™ 300 a truly multipurpose shaker. The flat platform, covered with a nonslip rubber mat, holds plates, dishes, boxes, etc. The microplate platform will accommodate up to four microplates. The remaining platform has spring loaded retaining bars that adjust to hold flasks, bottles, racks and other containers in place
Time and speed are set and displayed digitally. Values are shown on the large, three digit LED. The broad speed range allows the Orbit™ 300 to be used for gentle mixing as well as vigorous agitation.
The shaker housing is constructed of heavy gauge, coated steel to reduce motor noise and lend stability to the unit. This compact shaker can be used in temperature controlled environments making it ideal for cold room or incubator use.
