Model HT-91108, with USB Interface
Microplate Orbital Shaker
Genomics and Proteomics Processing
Our HT-91108 Microplate
Orbital Shaker with USB Interface is designed to provide an orbital shaking motion for a
single microplate, keeping liquids either gently
stirred, violently vortexed or fully mixed and in-suspension.
Link-up to any PC, robot controller, laptop or Windows tablet with a USB port. Rich ASCII
command set with features such as programmable acceleration and
velocity, precision auto-home positioning, status and velocity
reporting, timed modes, scripts and complex shaking protocols. Drop in the ActiveX for your own
Ultra thin profile and exact same footprint dimensions as a standard SBS wellplate.
- Rotationally shakes a single microplate.
- 0.5, 1 or 2 mm orbital motion.
- Full and rich ASCII command set.
- Low stirring speed to ultra vigorous
mixing and vortexing speeds for viscous liquids; 60 to 3570 RPM.
- 24 VDC power for safe and easy
integration with other automation.
- Cold running motor allows continuous
operation, weeks at a time.
- Small number of precision components for
extreme reliability over years of use.
- Plastic spring clips secure microplate; easy on
and off for robots or lab staff.
- Base is same size as microplate & fits
onto robotic decks without modifications. No extra control boxes.
- Ultra-precise home positioning every time.
- Buzz mode for resuspending stubborn sediment.
- Identical to HT-91100 shaker, but with USB interface.
electronic shaker provides a tight 1 mm orbital pattern for standard
96 and 384 well plates and does not spill liquids at high speeds. It
is designed with a programmable acceleration and velocity range of 60
to 3570 RPM, providing a gentle stirring motion for skin prevention,
medium speeds to ensure liquids remain fully mixed and in suspension
across all wells, and vortex mixing for sediment lift and
re-suspension. Complex stirring protocols are a breeze.
The footprint of the
unique HT-91108 Orbital Shaker is the same size as a standard
well-plate, and drops in easily as a replacement platform for robotic deck plates.
All the controls are fully within the tiny enclosure.
Its solid aluminum
construction does not allow walking or bouncing, and the nickel
plating ensures easy wipe down from all chemicals. It has a broad operating temperature
range of 0 to 160 degrees F, and it has negligible temperature rise
itself, allowing operation continuously in cold rooms without
affecting plate contents, and directly inside incubators.
to enhance existing automation and robotics for genome sequencing
and archiving applications, its tiny size, standardized SBS
microplate footprint and in-well mixing ability make it ideal for
many biotechnology, pharmaceutical, nanotechnology and chemical applications. These shakers are built-in to
OEM products on dozens of liquid handling systems, and are
exceedingly popular for researchers Worldwide.

USB (Virtual Com Port)
You have full control of the shaker via the USB driver's virtual Com
port. An ultra simple
command set allows you to easily control acceleration, velocity,
starting and stopping.
Features include a precise home position every time the unit stops,
electronically serialized units, text status output, an
alternating dual speed mode with programmable seconds per speed, a
timed mode, LED
indicator and diagnostics. Use a common USB hub to attach mulitple
shakers to your PC, each shaker has its own virtual Com port.
