SIEMENS MicroMix 5 microplate Shaker

The MicroMix 5 is a fully programmable microplate and tube shaker. It allows complete control over the amplitude, frequency, direction of rotation and duration of shaking. The shaker has a capacity of four 96-well microplates, 120 tubes in one rack (Rack 513) or up to two racks (Rack 500) of 96 tubes, and can also shake tubes in foam racks.

The MicroMix 5 consists of a base unit containing the control electronics, the electromechanics, a panel-mounted keypad and a Liquid Crystal Display (LCD). The base unit supports a lightweight but robust shaking table with plate-retaining strips, which can be exchanged for a mat and locators for shaking tubes. The MicroMix 5 has a separate desktop power supply.
