Flexibility

Flexible, integrated system

Up to four shaking units (SS-X) can be incorporated into a single rack. The robustly built rack system ensures the shaking units run quietly. The rack system is designed and constructed for maximum flexibility, can be adapted to fit almost any room and is easily extended. The configuration of the shaking units can be altered at any time with little effort. Each shaking unit is fitted with a speed controller and operates independently. Users are able to choose either orbital or linear motion as well as a suitable shaking diameter for each unit.


Climate

Ideal solution for temperature controlled rooms

The rack system is suitable for use in temperature controlled rooms. Racks and shaking units are made of stainless steel with hermetically sealed electronic parts.

SBM/SS-X

Low energy

Low energy consumption – low heat generation

The Kuhner drive emits very little unwanted heat which is an important factor when using the rack system in temperature controlled rooms. The low energy consumption of the drive means low heat generation.

Illumination unit for photosynthesis (LED)

The Rack-Shaker can be fitted with LED modules for the cultivation of phototrophic organisms. The control module allows full programming of night/day cycles and variable light intensity.

Pull-out table

The pull-out table is designed for the ISF1-X and ISF4-X incubator shakers as well as the Rack System. This remarkable device makes loading and unloading trays much easier.

Ausziehtisch

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. However, with the dual table the shaking speed is limited to a maximum of 200 rpm.

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.

 

An EPFL-table with 4 clamp positions is also available for the ES-X Lab-Shaker.

TabCom

The TabCom option from Kuhner consists of a cable for power and data with the connection port integrated in the shaking table (see pictures below). A cable guide prevents the cable breaking and ensures secure data recording. The flexibility of TabCom means online measurement systems can be easily integrated.

Good to know

Is linear shaking available?

Yes

What is needed for a double rack system?

The core of the rack system is the SBM (System Basic Module). To extend this a SEM (System Extension Module) must be ordered. Each further extension requires another SEM.

Can each shaking unit be set independently?

Yes, both shaking diameter and speed can be individually set for each unit.

Is it possible to order a combination of stationary shelves and shaking units (e.g. 2/2)?

Yes

Is it possible to alter the height of the shaking units?

Yes, there are 37 possible positions. 

Is it possible to have all the shaking units of the rack system turn off when somebody enters the climate room?

Yes

Is IQ-OQ documentation available for the shakers?

Yes

The following flyers provide information about the machines and function-specific solutions.
