BioShake 3000 elm DWP  •   Orbital shaker  •   Special adapted for 0.5 - 2.5 ml deep well plates  •  Vibration-free  •  Automatic home position  •  Automatic locking system
  • Overview

    • SMALL . LIGHT . EFFICIENT . QUIET

      If the filled deep well microtiter plate has a weight of more than 200 g, the using of BioShake 3000 elm DWP is recommended. The optimzed mass balance elements and integrated silicone pads in opposite corners reduce noise and vibration significantly during rapid mixing of full loaded microtiter plates.

      The BioShake 3000 elm DWP plate mixer provides high-speed mixing action for the most demanding robotics applications. The module is only slightly larger than a standard microplate, and with its patented vibration-free shaking, you’ll be amazed that the BioShake 3000 elm DWP can blend samples in a wide variety of microplates up to 96 well format. Fully adjustable between 200 rpm and 3,000 rpm, well beyond the speeds of most other brands, guarantees fast, splatter-free, mixing for all microplates.

      It is completely equipped for hands-free operation with an extensive remote command set for easy software integration. Through the integrated microelectronics no other external components and control devices are necessary.

      Integration in robots

      The BioShake can be operated via RS232 user interface. An automatic initialization will start after turn on. A simple command set allows you to easily control hardware and sensors. The process parameters are controlled and read out. A self-setting zero position of the shaker plate after turning off makes the timeconsuming electrical tracking unnecessary. This ensures a maximum of operating security also in the unmonitored continuous operation.

      Ideal use for deep well plates up to 2.5 ml well volume

      The BioShake 3000 elm DWP is designed exclusively for mixing of 96-well Deep Well Microplates. Especially in HTS applications with frequently and automatic plate changes provides the BioShake 3000 elm DWP safe and unmatched benefits.

      Gentle mixing of samples by planar orbital motion

      German designed and manufactured, BioShake 3000 elm DWP plate mixer offer an ultra-efficient, 2-dimensional shaking axis so that samples mix completely in a fraction of the time of competing systems. The mixing orbit of 2.0 mm is always constant. The orbital shaking is precisely controlled, in fact, that you need never spin down your plates after mixing. Even deep well plates or low sample volumes offer no obstacle for these precision tools.

      Sensor-controlled zero-positioning

      In time adjustable stopping operations a defined zero position is automatically extended and locked with an accuracy of 0.1 mm. An integrated sensor monitors this zero position and its accuracy.
      This ensures and simplifies the loading and removal processes and allows accurate pipetting.

      Edge Locking Mechanism (ELM) – A scientific innovation for automatic positioning

      Many robotic applications require precise dimensional spacing of pipet tips and robotic grippers relative to a microplate. The Edge Locking Mechanism (elm) is the complete answer for repeatable and accurate positioning of microplates on a robotic deck. It consists of 2x2 stainless steel pins and a 2-point electromechanical mechanism to lock down microplates safely in the center of the module. For gripping of microplates the ELM opens the clamping automatically. This “universal” design is perfect for all types of plates: from low profile to deep-well; from 96- to 1536-well. And when “locked” into place, the microplate varies by as little as +/- 0.1 mm making demanding manipulations a breeze.

      Stylish aluminium housing

      The first-class finished aluminium housing gives the BioShake 3000 elm DWP its essential functionality. It provides a high amount of security, device stability and ensures a long service life.

      LED indication lights

      All BioShake devices as new version 2012 have internal algorithms and sensors for monitoring operating parameters and error detection.

      Any errors are sending out via RS232 communication interface. Those are easier to detect and localize.

      To improve the functional testing during installation and visualizing the operating status all
      BioShake automation devices are equipped with integrated LED indication lights.

      The indication lights allow a quick function test and error control. These have a green and red indicator lights that light up either, or are disabled.

      In case of failure, the error list should read out via RS232 command, to help detect the error more precisely.

      Daisy Chain Box

      Daisy Chain Box is a pre-wired box to allow 2 to 4 devices/modules to be connected to a single PC serial communication port.

      The BioShake units can be configured for operating in a daisy-chained, individually addressable, single serial port mode. This mode allows many shakers to share a single serial port on your PC.
      The configuration requires that the cable D-type connector modules at the end of each D-type connector shaker interconnect cables be connected together in a manner where the serial output from one shaker connects to the serial input of the next shaker, and on and on.

      Up to 4 BioShake units can be connected together in this configuration, and the mode will also work with only one shaker. Since there are only three wires used in the communications for these shakers, it is easy to assemble a cable or connector box for the daisy-chaining configuration.

      Unused device ports have to be terminated with RS-232 terminators.

      The need to ensure quality in lab automation processes have become increasingly important. Verification and validation, in engineering or quality management systems, it is the act of reviewing, inspecting or testing, in order to establish and document that a product, service or system meets regulatory or technical standards.
      By contrast, validation refers to meeting the needs of the intended end-user or customer.

      The Q.Instruments verification tools are measurement systems to verify the accuracy of temperature and mixing speed and calibration of BioShake laboratory equipment and modules.
