Consistent, versatile, and compact benchtop shaking incubators are staples of modern life science labs. This is especially the case for busy labs that want to minimize hands-on time and preserve precious biological samples and expensive substrates without surrendering equally benchtop real estate. At just 200 x 235 x 120 mm, the Axygen Microtube Shaker from Corning—one of the market leaders in benchtop instrumentation for life science research—combines a minimal footprint with a thoughtful design specifically for busy molecular biology, biochemistry, and clinical chemistry labs. The Axygen Microtube Shaker offers a wide speed range per block, allowing for constant mixing from 200 to 1,500 rpm with little hands-on set-up required. It ensures heating and cooling control accuracy and precision of ±0.5°C at a range of 0.1°C to 100°C and is operational over an ambient temperature range of -15°C to 100°C—making it safe for cold room use.
