Easily programmable 3D mini-shaker with orbital 3D rotation, reciprocal 3D motion as well as soft vibrating rocking of the platform. These three motion types can be performed separately, pairwise and in cycles, periodically repeating the sequence of three motion types. Non–slip, temperature resistant, silicone mat located on the shaker platform provides stable position for vessels during shaking.
The shaker can be used in cold rooms or incubators, operating at ambient temperature range +4 °C to +40 °C.
We recommend this shaker for agitating the medium inside the microplate glass plate wells. Use orbital 3D rotation type for maximum effect.
This miniature impeller pump is highly efficient despite the compact and lightweight design allowing for installation into the smallest places. With acetal impeller and inner parts, viton seals, stainless fittings and a solid construction it is made for continous use in hostile environments like marine labs.
Pump flow rate can be adjusted by varying input voltages between 6 VDC and 12 VDC. Further fine tuning can be made by restricting the outlet using flexible tubing and an adjustable clamp or by simply changing tube inner dimensions and thus friction against flow. The pump is quite happy to run even with the outlet completely blocked. Pressure inside the pump will increase; yet load on the drive motor will reduce as flow is reduced.
The pump mounts onto any planar surface with stainless screws and o-rings (both included). We can supply an optional fitting flange with barb hose fittings for 3.2 mm tubing.
The pump is NOT for submerged use.
We offer this clear and non-toxic silicone adhesive for mounting sensors spots on many substrates such as glass and most common engineering plastics. Suitable solvents include isopropyl alcohol, acetone or methyl ethyl ketone.
On exposure to moisture, the freshly applied material will "skinover" in ~7 min. Any tooling should be completed before this skin forms. After skin formation, cure continues inward from the surface. In 24 hours (at room temperature and 50 % relative humidity) the silicone glue will cure to a depth of about 3 mm.
