Helix 150BL Orbital Shaker


The compact Helix™ 150BL is an easy-to-use open air orbital shaker used for various laboratory shaking applications. The Helix 150BL comes equipped with a long lasting brushless DC motor that provides quiet operation and consistent shaking speed independent of the load or power supply fluctuations. The shaker provides a smooth continuous motion resulting in uniform mixing and is operated easily using a rotary timer knob and a speed knob. The Helix 150BL is designed for biological, chemical, liquid mixing and cell cultivation in an array of laboratory settings. Includes dual-sided (smooth/ribbed) non-slip mat. EZ-Clamp Platform and patented EZ-Clamps™* sold separately.
