First-class finished aluminium housing.
Unique design meets high-end technology. Safety of the user and ease of use are clearly a priority for us. 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 iQ / BioShake XP its essential functionality. It provides a high amount of security, device stability and ensures a long service life.
By planar orbital motion.
German designed and manufactured, BioShake iQ/XP microplate shaker 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.
Using large-area heating source in combination with digital sensor electronic.
The BioShake iQ heats from ambient up to 99 °C in a short time, provides ease of use features, amazing comfort and maximum safety.
Within the BioShake iQ thinnest large-area heating elements and sensors are integrated. During the heat up time the special electronic control system guarantees the same temperature for all vessels with minimal deviations.
Temperatures are selectable from ambient temperature to 99°C in steps of 1.0°C. The nominal regulation accuracy is better than ±0.1°C with a uniformity of temperature distribution better than ±0.5°C at 45°C across the heating surface. Exchangeable adapter plates and thermal blocks enable a perfect adaptation to microplates, tubes or glass vials.
Suitable for all microplates according to the SBS standard format.
In the corners eight spring clamps are inserted for easy fixation of microplates, deep well plates and PCR plates in SBS format 127.7 x 85.5 mm without an attached adapter. The spring clamps lock the micro plate quickly and safely, even at the highest mixing frequencies. Fast mixing processes with frequent plate changes can be performed in the routine as easy and safe.
Simple intuitive operation and programming.
The BioShake iQ/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, mixing frequency and temperature.
High-end instruments for daily routine
A perfectly harmonious blend of high-tech and handmade. "Made in Germany" has always been a recipe for success for QInstruments. 100% of QInstruments production takes place in Germany.
