The Belly Button Shaker Lab Start-Up Kit with tube mat provides a unique undulating motion for cell culture, hybridizations, blotting, staining, and other shaking procedures. The small footprint (8”x8”) takes up little lab space and easily fits inside incubators. The easily adjustable speed and platform pitch angle controls provide a wide range of agitation conditions, from extremely gentle to vigorous. The Belly Button is an exceptionally simple liquid agitation system consisting of an orbiting platform flexibly anchored at four corners so that the platform motion, when adjusted by the platform pitch control collar, is an extremely effective combination of rocking platform and orbital shaker. One dimensional shakers do not have the versatility and range of application that result from the variable speed and adjustable platform pitch of The Belly Button.
The Belly Button has a simple, durable construction and is made of chemically resistant materials including stainless steel and anodized aluminum parts with a high bake ester finish on the case. The Belly Button comes with a removable, washable non-skid platform mat. The thin, flat power cord reaches external outlets without damaging incubator or refrigerator gaskets. The platform can easily be adjusted with the platform pitch control collar from level motion to an 8° pitch. The Belly Button can hold up to 5lbs with extremely quiet operation. The ambient operating temperature range is 0°C to 60°C in high humidity, dry incubators, and refrigerated units. The speed varies from 6 to 100rpm with no cogging at slow speeds. Operates in CO2 incubator.
The Belly Button is ideal for use in cell culture and tissue culture applications, immunoprecipitation, Northern and Southern Hybridizations, Western Blotting and membrane rinsing, phage elution, amplification of cDNA Libraries, and staining and de-staining gels.
The tube mat will hold 10ml – 50ml tubes.
