The SSL1 by Cole Parmer is a lab-scale platform shaker with a powerful yet quiet shaking mechanism designed for problem-free continuous use—providing a smooth orbital shaking action with an orbit of 16mm a speed range of 30 to 300rpm, ideal for most culturing / aeration applications. It can be used in environmental chambers and CO2 incubators.

The cradle type platform has four rubber cushioned horizontal securing bars with quick release handles. They can be easily adjusted vertically and horizontally to hold most sizes and types of vessels, including flasks, bottles and beakers. For example, they will accommodate the following Erlenmeyer flasks or bottles: 12 x 250ml or 9 x 500ml or 6 x 1000ml or 2 x 2000ml. The main advantage of this cradle system is that it can accommodate different vessel sizes, a common requirement where different people in the laboratory use shakers.

Speed is fully variable and is set digitally for consistency. The speed is microprocessor controlled and accurately maintained even over long runs. A versatile built-in timer can be set from 1 second to 9 hours. After the timer has counted down, the shaker stops and sounds an alert. Alternatively, the unit can be set for continuous operation.

A larger platform is available as an optional accessory (SSL1/1). Designed to increase the capacity of the SSL1, the platform is 510 x 510mm with six securing bars. It will accommodate the following Erlenmeyer flasks or bottles: 30 x 250ml or 16 x 500ml or 9 x 1000ml or 4 x 2000ml. With this platform is fitted, the maximum permissible speed is 150rpm. An optional flat platform, the SSL1/2, is available if you would prefer not to use the cradle system.
