ThermoFisher iEMS 96 well Incubator Shakers
in 3, 6 or 9 place models from $6,500. with 3 year warranty!


Iems Incubator Shaker is a reliable and dependable addition to the Thermo Fisher Scientific Laboratory Instruments family of products. Combining top-notch and uncompromising quality with an affordable price, the Thermo Fisher Scientific iEMS Incubator Shakers can fulfill your laboratory needs while still offering a great value for the money. Manufactured since 1986 in Finland with superior long lasting history and MTX Lab Systems, Inc.  have sold and supported these products since 1986!

These iEMS incubator shakers are designed to handle 3, 6 or up to 9 96-well plates and to fit into a small bench space, making it perfect for medium-sized laboratories. The iEMS incubator shaker is a high temperature model with the capacity of incubating and shaking all 96-well plates microplates simultaneously.

Superior Temperature Control
These Incubator/Shakers are high-performance microplate incubator/shakers and can be used for any 96 well microplate-based assay requiring optimal incubation conditions up to 40° C.
Features include excellent temperature uniformity within the plate, and across the row. Unique orbital shaking efficiency, efficient mixing of even very viscous liquids,  improved sensitivity and specificity for Elisa assays.

Excellent temperature uniformity
These 3 or 6 or 9 well plate Incubator Shakers have individual Thermal Microplate Holders encasing each 96 well microplate (we call them clamshells).  To eliminate temperature gradients and edge effects, microplates are heated evenly from all sides.  This ensures the reproducibility of the assay wherever the sample is positioned on the plate.  Temperature uniformity of less than 0.3° C.

Efficient orbital shaking
For effective mixing, the Incubator Shaker incorporates a powerful variable-speed orbital shaker.  With an orbit of 0.5mm and speeds from 400-1400 RPM in 250 RPM increments, the shaker motion ensures efficient mixing of even very viscous liquids.

Improved sensitivity and reduced incubation times
Superior temperature control and efficient orbital shaking dramatically increase the sensitivity of EIA assays, as well as reducing incubation times.  The detection limit of an HBsAg assay, for example, can be increased by a factor of two from 0.8 U/ml to 0.42 U/ml, simply by incubating at a constant 37° C.  Similar benefits apply to assay incubation time.  When the sample is incubated at 37° C instead of room temperature, the same sensitivity can be achieved in half the time.

The effective orbital shaking motion increases the detection limit by a factor of three, from 0.8 U/ml to 0.24 U/ml, after a two hour incubation.  Shaking reduces the incubation time by 1.5 hours. 

These Shakers come with three year warranty from factory trained engineers.  Iems models have been manufactured since 1986 in Finland with superior long lasting history. Universal power supply, use worldwide and can be reset to 220 Voltage.
