MIR-S100C offers secure operation for cell culture

For use in high humidity conditions

MIR-S100C compact orbital shaker

Sanyo’s MIR-S100C compact orbital shaker is for use in high humidity and/or elevated CO2 concentration conditions. With the orbital shaker mounted inside the incubator and an independent controller placed externally, the MIR-S100C offers simple, secure operation for cell culture applications within GMP environments.

The MIR-S100C incorporates antibacterial copper alloy stainless steel for the shaker section, with a small window that can be used for spraying disinfectant inside. The controller is a separate unit, preventing humidity from affecting the electrical components and enabling operation to be monitored without opening the incubator.

Revolution speed is adjustable from 40–200rpm and the timer can be set for up to 99.9 hours or continuous operation. A soft start function protects against spillage or foaming of samples inside flasks and test tubes by gradually accelerating at a selectable speed until the preset number of revolutions is reached.

Features include a non-volatile memory facilitating automatic recovery after a power cut, speed error alarm and motor overload protection circuit to ensure security of operation. A maintenance-required indicator is provided for timely replacement of belt and bearings, and therefore more secure continuous operation.

Optional accessories include a platform on which cultures may be placed and clamps and racks for a variety of flasks and tubes.
