Top questions to ask when purchasing a new open air shaker.

What type of motion are you looking for?
You can choose your model among OHAUS selection of orbital, rocking, waving and reciprocating shakers.

Do you need a specific speed and orbit?
The larger the sample the larger the orbit and a slower speed is needed for a good mix. For smaller samples, it is the opposite, smaller orbit and faster speed for a good mix.

What size of shaker do you need?
You can easily find a shaker that can meet required capacity and sample kind. The most common samples are either Erlenmeyer flasks or tubes. The OHAUS Equipment Catalog has a guide in the accessory section listing the number of tube racks or flask clamps each shaker can hold.

Do you need a temperature control?
Incubating models are available as well as incubating/cooling. Remember, incubating models can begin to control temperature at ~5°C above whatever the ambient (room) temperature is, so if the customer needs a temperature close to ambient, select a model that can cool.

How important is reproducibility of your settings?
If it is important, you should recommend a digital (DG) shaker as opposed to an analog (AL). Analog settings are not exact, digital settings are.

Do you need a simple means for capturing your data?
The OHAUS Thermal Shaker units (ISTHBLHTS and ISTHBLCTS) have a USB. Downloading the data is as simple as inserting a flash drive into the port and selecting USB mode on the utilities menu. You do not need special software. The data is uploaded to a .csv file, similar to an Excel spreadsheet.
