Continuing with their fine tradition of producing high quality laboratory instruments Benchmark Scientific has introduced the Incu-Mixer microplate heater and shaker , available in two sizes: 2 microplates or 4 microplates.
Equipment to shake and heat at the same time is hardly a new thing to Benchmark, but previously such equipment was on the larger size and designed for either microtubes or flasks. The Incu-Mixer is designed to mix and heat Microplates:
We’ve carried the BenchMark Incu-Shaker 10L since it was introduced. It has been a powerful combination of a laboratory shaker combined with an incubator. It shakes flasks 30 to 300 rpm with a 19mm orbit. Flasks can be held by using a devoted flask system or with the magnetic MAGic Clamp system that uses individual flask holders with magnetic bases to keep them in place during the shaking process. Overall the system is one of the most versatile Shaker/Incubator systems on the market:
There has been an addition to the family, however, as BenchMark has now introduced the BenchMark Incu-Shaker 10LR, this new system has one new advantage: it not only can heat, but it can cool as well!
Both the 10L and the 10LR can heat up to 60 degrees Celsius, but the 10LR also has a cooling system that allows to to lower temperatures up to 15 degrees below the ambient room temperature. This increases the versatility of the Incu-Shaker with minimal change in the profile. It is one of the most affordable systems on the market!
There is a cost, however, and that is weigh. The Incu-Shaker 10L already weighs in at 120 lbs. and the additional weight of the refrigeration system brings the 10LR up to 170 lbs. This is why when ordering an Incu-Shaker we suggest contact us for a LTL freight quote as UPS or FEDEX shipping costs can get fairly large.
Want to buy the BenchMark Incu-Shaker 10LR?
Benchmark Scientific makes some of the best and most affordable lab equipment on the market. Now they’ve made a great offer where if you buy their Multi-Therm Shaker or Incu-Shaker Mini and you’ll get a FREE CoolCube, Vortex Mixer, or Mini Centrifuge!
The Multi-Therm is BenchMark’s excellent heating/cool shaking system for microplates and various sizes if centrifuge tubes!
The Multi-Therm come in two designs – one for cooling (-20C) and heating (100C) and one for just heating (Ambient+5 to 100C). Both units can shake from 200 to 1500 rpm in a 3mm orbit. The Multi-Therm has a large variety of exchangeable blocks available to hold tubes from 0.2ml to 50ml, with several blocks to hold sizes in between! You get the free CoolCube, Vortexer, or Mini-Centrifuge whichever model you choose.
The Incu-Shaker Mini is small and mighty. It is designed to work with larger flasks – heating them while shaking them!
The Incu-Shaker heats from Ambient +5C up to 60C. It shakes from 30 to 300 rpm with an orbit of 19mm. All of this power fits in an footprint that is smaller than 16″ deep and 11″ wide (10.5″ tall). The Incu-Shaker can use either the racks devoted to specific sizes of flasks or it can employ the versatile MAGic Clamp platform that allows magnetic attachment of a variety of flask holding clamps or even a Tube Rack. Ordering the Incu-Shaker gets you a free CoolCube, Vortexer or Mini-Centrifuge!

Benchmark once again comes through with innovative and affordable new lab equipment. This time they’ve taken their popular Incu-Shaker Mini and made it bigger to make the BenchMark Incu-Shaker 10L
BenchMark Incu-Shaker 10L
Like its little brother, this incu-shaker combines an incubation system with a lab shaking system (30-300 rpm) for those systems that require heat and shaking to occur. The larger capacity of the Incu-Shaker means that special shelves for petri dishes, trays, and microplates can be added (to a maximum of 3). The system also has its own size MAGic Clamp for holding down flasks and other labware. The system is very versatile and ready to serve you and your lab! The best part is despite the excellent quality and options the Incu-Shaker 10L is only $4,895 – the nearest equal competitor’s model comes in at over $6,000+! So its a great deal and an great instrument!
Benchmark Scientific has done it once again! They’ve already neatly filled the orbital lab shaker market with a great series of products like the Orbi-Shaker, the Incu-Shaker and the low-speed Orbi-Blotter among others. But now they have also added the Orbi-Shaker CO2.
