Thermo Scientific Solaris™ Open Air Orbital Shakers

Solaris™ orbital shakers are ruggedly built for demanding applications in busy research and GMP labs and even strictly controlled cleanroom facilities. These units combine an ergonomic design with key feature enhancements like a sealed electronic system, programmable display, and an easy to clean platform design to aid in better contamination control.

The triple eccentric drive mechanism, engineered to perform with a reduced noise level, is built with proven technology to support heavy loads, always maintaining consistent performance. The belt is maintenance-free and engineered to last the life of the shaker, and the shaker mechanism itself comes with an industry leading warranty.
