Key Benefits

Compact and stylish designed, the BioShake XP high-speed microplate mixer lets you perform all your standard mixing runs with a minimum of adjustments. The XP offers outstanding performance to handle a wide range of applications across biotechnology, pharmaceutical and academic research.

Small. Light. Efficient. Quiet.
  • Ideal for microplates & PCR plates
  • High-precision mixing from 200 up to 3,000 rpm
  • Universal spring clamps for easy fixation
  • Wide range of adapters
  • Stylish, fire resistant aluminium housing

ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY

Compact & stylish designed

Mixing tasks in microplates can be realized fast & safe with using adjustable speed of 200 up to 3,000 rpm.

The BioShake mixing-technology is obviously more robust, vibration free and needs less maintenance compared to classical mixers.

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

GENTLE MIXING OF SAMPLES

By planar orbital motion

German designed and manufactured, BioShake XP 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 tubes, vials, high density plates, or low sample volumes, offer no obstacle for these precision tools.

Fully adjustable between 200 rpm and 3,000 rpm, well beyond the speeds of most other brands, guarantees fast, splatter-free, mixing for tubes, glass vials or across an entire 384-well microplate.

COMFORT

Simple intuitive operation and programming

The BioShake XP is operated from the front face of the enclosure which includes touch buttons and a display. 

Special buttons for start, stop and storage of time and mixing modes enable the instrument to run complex applications. This opens new points of view on the daily laboratory work and optimizes routine application enormously.

The short mix button allows short and fast mixing in between.

The two line LCD display guarantees simultaneous and safe reading of all programmed and measured parameters as time and mixing frequency.

UNIVERSAL SPRING CLAMPS

Suitable for all microplates

In the corners eight spring clamps are inserted for easy fixation of microplates and deep well plates in SBS format 127.7 x 85.5 mm without an attached adapter. These spring clamps lock the microplate quickly and safely, even at the highest mixing frequencies.

For flexible and deformable PCR plates we recoomend using of the related PCR adapter.

Fast mixing processes with frequent plate changes can be performed in the routine as easy and safe.

UNIQUE DESIGN MEETS HIGH-END TECHNOLOGY

First-class finished aluminium housing

Unique and efficient design combined with the most compact housing result in beautiful and well-defined laboratory equipment.  Therefore, the first-class finished aluminium housing gives the BioShake XP its essential functionality. It provides a high amount of security, device stability and ensures a long service life.

Safety of the user and ease of use are clearly a priority for us.

EXCHANGABLE ADAPTERS

For a wide range of applications

The BioShake XP comes with a variety of standardized and specific adapter plates. The replacement of the adapters are very simple

Perfect shaped adapters allow an optimal fit for standard tubes, lysis tubes, microplates, glass vials and other sample vessels.

Recommended mixing speeds

The adjustment of the optimal mixing frequency in depending on filling volume per well should always be made in dependence on the size of the well and the filling volume. 

Only in this way optimum results can be achieved with in shortest process time with a high reproducibility.
