Microplate Apparatus and Equipments



PHMP series

Excellent temperature uniformity across the platform/microplate (due to the bi-directional heating system) combined with variable speed and variable temperature produces the ideal thermoshaker for microplate incubations.

  • Can be used with all types of standard depth microplates and offers three instruments in one for maximum versatility and efficiency:
  • A microplate thermoshaker
  • A compact benchtop incubator without shaking
  • A microplate shaker operating at ambient +4°C to 40°C 


  • Temperature setting range: + 25°C to 60°C
  • Temperature stability ± 0.1°C, temperature uniformity ± 0.2°C due to the bi-directional heating system (platform and lid)
  • Shaking speed: 250 to 1200rpm
  • Rapid heat-up
  • Continuous or timed operation, with alarm buzzer and automatic switch-off facility
  •  Choice of two models with capacity for two (PHMP) or four (PHMP-4) 96- or 384-well microplates
  • The heated lid completely covers the flat heating plate to provide bi-directional heating and excellent temperature stability and uniformity, whilst preventing condensation
  • Combination of bi-directional heating and powerful orbital shaking capability produces the maximum yield from incubations
  • Very easy to operate, with simple set-up of temperature, shaking speed and time via push buttons and the 2-line LCD status display

The PMS-1000i microplate shaker provides reliable, regulated shaking for two or four microplates. With a speed range of 150 to 1000 rpm, the PMS-1000i can be adjusted to suit the application - gentle shaking to ensure that the well contents are not ejected, or more vigorous agitation for effective aeration across the small surface area of each of the wells.

  • Variable shaking speed: 150 to 1200 rpm
  • Direct drive mechanism and brushless motor
  • Set and display the speed (rpm)
  • Holds two or four microtitre plates
  • Quick and easy screw fitting of any standard-depth 96- or 384-well plate
  • Continuous or timed operation, with automatic switch off
  • Platform for two microtitre plates supplied as standard. Platform for four plates (MPP-4) available as an option
  • Easy-to-use integral electronic timer ensure accurate count-down and repeatability of time-sensitive incubations
  • Quick and easy to use screw fittings keep the plates securely in position and allow fitting on any standard-depth 96- or 384-well plates
  • Easy to read LED display clearly indicates time remaining on timed operations and speed in rpm
  • Simple graduated dial to adjust the speed to suit the application: - gentle shaking to ensure that the well contents remain in situ, or more vigorous agitation for effective aeration across the surface area of each well.
