- Heavy duty platform shaker provides orbital motion, reciprocation and vibration functions all in one powerful microprocessor controlled product, and builds on success of Grant-bio PS-M3D, the original multi-functional platform shaker

- Unparalleled flexibility provided via a range of interchangeable platforms, including a high-capacity four level ‘hotel’ format platform to maximise use of bench/floor space

- Designed for biotech, biopharmaceutical and academic research laboratories

CAMBRIDGE, UK, July 29, 2008 - Grant Instruments (www.grant.co.uk), a world-renowned supplier of scientific, life sciences and data acquisition products, has introduced a heavy duty microprocessor controlled 3-in-1 multi-functional orbital platform shaker, designed for use in biotech, biopharmaceutical and academic research laboratories.

The latest addition to the Grant-bio product range, the PSU-20 platform shaker combines three mixing functions - orbital motion, reciprocation and vibration - into one easy to use benchtop unit. Following on the success of the smaller PS-M3D system, the first platform shaker to offer the three programmable shaking modes, the PSU-20’s mixing functions are fully programmable and can be set for continuous or timed operation (1 min to 96 hours) to achieve optimum mixing either in a single mode or in any different combination of the three functions.

The Grant-bio PSU-20 provides unparalleled flexibility as it is available with a range of interchangeable platforms to accommodate different sized flasks, beakers, Petri dishes and other laboratory vessels. One available option is a high-capacity four level ‘hotel’ format platform (480x380mm) which maximises use of bench or floor space.

“The PSU-20 is a highly-flexible and competitively-priced multi-functional, multi-platform shaker which enables optimisation of shaking for a wide variety of applications, increasing the yield and improving reproducibility,” says Rob Thorburn, commercial manager for Scientific Products at Grant. “Its versatility means that it’s ideal for multi-user laboratories, particularly for micro and molecular biologists working with microbiological fermentations in warm rooms, multiple gel destaining and membrane processing.”

The Grant-bio PSU-20 benchtop unit measures 140 x 485 x 520mm, features a loading capacity of 15kg, a 2-line 16 character LCD display and a powerful, reliable and exceptionally quiet motor. As with all of the Grant-bio range of life science products, the PSU-20 is robust and reliable and comes with a 2-year warranty.

Grant’s comprehensive range of scientific products includes block heaters and coolers, baths and thermostatic circulators, re-circulating chillers, flow heaters, and, under the Grant-bio brand, microplate and micro-tube thermoshakers, UV cabinets/PCR workstations, centrifuges, densitometers, rockers, rotators, shakers, mixers and stirrers.

The Grant-bio series of products can be purchased worldwide through the extensive network of Grant appointed scientific products distributors. A full range of accessories is available, making the Grant-bio product range one of the most comprehensive on the market for sample preparation and treatment, as well as representing excellent value for money.

Grant has been designing, manufacturing and distributing scientific products for the past 57 years and has established a worldwide reputation for high quality, reliable and robust equipment designed to satisfy the most demanding applications for research in life sciences, chemical and general laboratories.
