Grant Instruments has introduced a versatile, variable speed, variable temperature three-in-one microplate shaker, thermoshaker and incubator targeted at molecular and cell biologists, in particular those performing ELISAs.
Part of the Grant bio range of life science products and extending Grant’s range of microplate equipment, the PHMP-4 can accommodate four standard depth 96- or 384-well microplates.
The PHMP-4 is designed to deliver temperature stability (±0.1°C) and uniformity (±0.2°C) over the entire heating platform due to the innovative bi-directional heating system.
The heated lid and base combination also prevents condensation which is critical when handling micro-volume samples at high temperatures. The combination of the bi-directional heating and the powerful orbital shaking produces the maximum yield from incubations.
The PHMP-4 is three instruments in one: it can be used as a microplate thermoshaker, a compact benchtop incubator without shaking, and a microplate shaker without temperature control. When employed as a thermoshaker or incubator, it can provide a heating range from ambient plus 5°C to 60°C and optionally to temperatures above 60oC. As a thermoshaker or shaker without heating, it can provide powerful orbital shaking with reproducible rotation speeds of 250 to 1200 rpm.
As well as its suitability for ELISAs, the PHMP-4 can be used in multiple applications including molecular biology, cytochemistry, biochemistry, molecular chemistry, immunochemistry and molecular diagnostics.
