How it Works

How it works

Extend automation into heating, cooling and shaking protocols to enhance operational standards and maximize lab throughput.

  • Overview

    Functional comparison between COLDPLATE BIOSHAKE 3000-T and BIOSHAKE 3000

    COLDPLATE offers precise and uniform temperature control from 0-99 °C, and BIOSHAKE offers precise shaking up to 3000 rpm. The BIOSHAKE 3000-T combines this capability with accurate heating.


  • Reliable high performance


    The modules offer dependable operation over extended periods, making them suitable for demanding laboratory tasks and giving researchers confidence in the accuracy of their results.

  • Compact and robust design


    These robust modules boast compact footprints that require minimal floor area in the laboratory and do not need an external control unit.

  • Integration with INTEGRA's pipetting platforms


    The modules can be programmed with VIALAB pipette automation software for use on the ASSIST PLUS, using the connection cable provided. VIALAB offers predefined temperature and shaking steps, simplifying the programming process for users and enabling convenient control. Corresponding cables and footprint adapter are provided with each unit. Effortlessly manage modules loaded onto VIAFLO 96 or VIAFLO 384 instruments via your PC, with the user-friendly software interface HCS Control.

  • Labware flexibility


    Adapters accommodate different labware formats and samples, offering versatility for multiple different applications in the laboratory
