BS-010159-A05 | Thermo shaker for deep well plates (TS-DW)

Key Features

  • The TS-DW can be used as an incubator, plate shaker or thermo shaker
  • Ideal for use under general laboratory conditions as well as in cold rooms and incubators 
  • Heat transfer to samples from the instrument base and heated lid guarantees excellent temperature stability and low evaporation
  • LCD displays both set and actual temperature along with shaking speed and shaking time
  • Temperature calibration function to compensate for the thermal behaviour of plates from different manufacturers
  • Timer sound signal
  • Automatic fault diagnostics (temperature sensor, platform heating and lid heating)
  • Multiple block options (please see below)


The BioSan TS-DW thermo shaker has been designed to shake, heat and shake, or heat deep well plates so that it can function as an incubator, a plate shaker or a thermo shaker. The shaking speed can be varied between 250 rpm and 1,400 rpm with a shaking orbit of 2 mm and a heating range of +25ºC to +100ºC adjustable in 0.1ºC increments. The TS-DW also features an LCD display and a 96 hour timer.

The TS-DW transfers heat to samples from both the instrument base and the heated lid. The  elements of the plate blocks (please see image below) fully contact the plate wells to ensure that the deep-well plate and the samples are heated to the desired temperature. When combined with contour heating of the bottom of the plate this improves temperature uniformity between wells. This heating from both sides guarantees excellent temperature stability and low evaporation.

Block Options

A number of end-user interchangeable blocks are available for the TS-DW. Blocks are sold separately from the base unit and at least one block is required for full operation of the instrument. Custom blocks can be manufactured upon request.
