ISF1-Z Models

The appropriate properties for every application

The ISF1-Z incubator shaker is available in three different models: ISF1-Z, ISF1-Z EcoDew and ISF1-Z Peltier. Each model provides distinct features and is additionally available with CO2 control for cell culture processes.

The ISF1-Z is the basic version of Kuhners stackable incubator shaker with temperature control (heating).

The ISF1-Z EcoDew® includes temperature control (heating) and Kuhners EcoDew® technology for humidity control. No cooling compressor unit is required for the precise and eco-friendly EcoDew® technology. 

The innovative ISF1-Z Peltier uses long life peltier elements for precise heating and cooling and also for humidity control. This eco-friendly concept makes coolants or compressors unnecessary. The humidity control of the ISF1-Z Peltier is able to humidify and dehumidify up to 50% compared with the ambient relative humidity.

All stainless steel for easy cleaning

The ISF1-Z is made of stainless steel inside and outside for easy and fast cleaning. The hygienic design complies with GMP requirements. The interior was designed according to DIN EN ISO 14159. It has rounded corners and a drain at the back for quick removal of any unwanted liquids. The direct drive system is completely covered and therefore protected from spills. The incubator chamber can be cleaned with chemicals or sterilized using optional UV lighting. 

Hygienic design according to DIN EN ISO 14159

ISF1-Z

Shaking capacity

A system that grows with your needs

Up to three ISF1-Z incubators can be stacked providing more shaking capacity without taking up more floor space in the lab. Stacking is a simple procedure without the need for special tools or stacking kits. Each machine operates independently. The ISF1-Z incubator shakers are mixable in stack with ISF1-X/W incubators.


Flexibility

Options, accessories, and more

Numerous options and accessories are available for the ISF1-Z incubator shaker to fulfill any need of our customers regarding cultivations in shaken bioreactors. Moreover, all accessories are interchangeable between the new ISF1-Z incubators and its predecessors ISF1-X/W. The ISF1-Z offers even more interior space than its predecessor ISF1-X, e.g. to accommodate particularly big shake flasks. The ISF1-Z has clearly arranged displays on the front side (e.g. for shaking speed) with color change and an acoustic signal when an error/alarm occurs.

Additionally, a fix or a tilting touchscreen version with our Kuhner Insight software is available. Serial interfaces (e.g. CAN) are arranged on the front side and the sensors in the inside are also easily accessible for a fast and comfortable work flow. The interior LED light is a color neutral light with low energy dissipation.

CO₂ control

CO2 control is essential when working with mammalian cell cultures. Kuhner was the first company to manufacture and supply incubator shakers with CO2 control more than 15 years ago and continues to offer this option. More.


Peltier

The innovative ISF1-Z Peltier uses long life peltier elements for precise heating and cooling and also for humidity control. This eco-friendly concept makes coolants or compressors unnecessary. The humidity control of the ISF1-Z Peltier is able to humidify and dehumidify up to 50% compared with the ambient relative humidity. 

ISF1-Z Peltier

Humidity control

Humidity control is an important factor in successful fermentation. Evaporation from microtiter plates, or when cultivating in flasks for long periods (e.g. cell cultures), can be significantly reduced with humidification.

To reduce evaporation from shake flasks or microtiter plates a water bath is placed inside the incubator. This water bath is fitted with an automatic water supply.

Our newly developed EcoDew®-Technology provides precise humidity control. More.


UV lamp

As in a biological safety cabinet, the chamber of a Kuhner incubator shaker can also be sterilized with an integrated UV lamp. The lamp is situated to maximise irradiation of the chamber and shaking table. The UV lamp has a clearly marked external switch and when the door is opened, the UV-lighting is automatically switched off.

UV-Lampe

Light shade plate

Kuhner has designed a new light shade plate for the ISF1-X and ISF1-Z incubators. This plate is easily placed in front of the door window to prevent radiation affecting the contents of the incubator chamber. It protects light sensitive media from UV, artificial and/or daylight.

Simply lift up the light shade plate to look at the cultures without opening the incubator door. When light protection is no longer required, the plate is easily removed.

Check out the Kuhner EquipNote "Light protection for Kuhner incubators".

Lichtschutzblende

Black window

Available for light sensitive medium or organisms. Any Kuhner incubator shaker can be delivered with blackened windows to prevent unwanted daylight or UV radiation inside the incubator.

Check out the Kuhner EquipNote "Light protection for Kuhner incubators".

Dual table

The dual table is an easy and economical way of doubling the shaking capacity. The dual shaking table consists of two levels. Each level will accept an F size tray. The distance between the two levels of the dual table is adjustable. However, with the dual table the shaking speed is limited.

Doppelschütteltisch

EPFL-table

Are you screening using large numbers of 50ml bioreactors (TPP, Falcon tubes etc.)? Then our new EPFL-table is the ideal solution. This table accepts up to five tube holders, each with a capacity of 24 x 50ml tubes. Each tube holder has its own clamp handle allowing it to be easily taken out of the incubator shaker and put on a clean bench while the other tubes keep on shaking. It’s also possible to shake microtiter plates on the EPFL-table, using Duetz 4-place coverclamps. If you have a Kuhner F-size tray (800 x 420mm), you can also clamp that on the table instead of individual holders. The TabCom Option is not possible with an EPFL-table. The TabCom Option is not possible with an EPFL-table.

Water bath-Z with Kuhner CleanShield

Kuhner CleanShield is a disposable inlay for the newly designed water bath-Z. Development focused on simplifying the cleaning process, saving users’ time, and providing a cleaner environment in our shaker incubators. The inlays are sterilely packaged and available in a pack of six. The process of changing the Kuhner CleanShield takes just five minutes and cultivation can resume immediately after. Harsh cleaning agents might leave residues or vapors in the incubator that could negatively impact your cultures; the CleanShield reduces this risk and protect your bath-Z leading to less maintenance and an increased lifetime of the shaker incubator.

The ISF1-Z comes with two water bath options:

  • Standard water bath-Z
  • Water bath-Z for Kuhner CleanShield (Option: SMZ1510)

The standard water bath-Z can be converted to a water bath-Z for Kuhner CleanShield, by using the retrofit set SMZ856187.

Light shade plate

Kuhner has designed a new light shade plate for the ISF1-X and ISF1-Z incubators. This plate is easily placed in front of the door window to prevent radiation affecting the contents of the incubator chamber. It protects light sensitive media from UV, artificial and/or daylight.

Simply lift up the light shade plate to look at the cultures without opening the incubator door. When light protection is no longer required, the plate is easily removed.
