The ShakeGenius shaker table continues to ‘shake the expectations’ for the standards of laboratory equipment using high quality pieces at a low cost to produce effective and quality laboratory equipment. The user-friendly interface allows for ease of use with minimal training featuring label operational buttons and an LCD screen for textual description. The compact design features two powerful DC brushless motors capable of quick changes in direction for quality movement and fluid motions between the three operational orbital patterns that can be selected by the customer for their desired needs. The high-quality motors are meant for extended use giving the ShakeGenius a longer life span than the typical market shakers. Easily adjustable and great to use, the ShakeGenius unique enclosure of sheet metal and a silicon cover not only make it waterproof, but lighter in weight and easy to clean for any laboratory practice. Made of quality materials and designed to counter the torques and issues experienced by previous iterations, the ShakeGenius is built to last with standard maintenance and cleaning before any parts are expected to be replaced before the 5-year window. The customized OD/FI system created for the system is meant to be attached to the arm of the microbioreactor, allowing for quality data recordings that do not interfere with the shaker tables’ motions. The overall design makes for an efficient and compact design that is guaranteed to satisfy every level of customer use.
