Laboratory shakers, also known as mixers, are laboratory products used in the chemistry and biology industries to mix liquids and prepare solutions and suspensions. These equipments create a movement between liquids or between liquids and solids in order to achieve mixing, suspension, dispersion, homogenization, heat transfer, etc. At present, stirring systems (agitators) are used in all laboratories, be they chemistry, biology, among others. .
The different models of shakers, rockers and rotators are designed to house tubes, microplates, cell culture flasks, flasks or similar containers. Mini stirrers are small and space saving; Other shakers, rockers, and rotators are the size of a standard table, although some are freestanding and stackable.
