Heater-Shaker Module

The Opentrons Heater-Shaker Module, compatible with both the OT-2 and Flex robots, provides on-deck heating and orbital shaking of microplates. The module can be heated to 95C, and can shake samples from 200 to 3000 rpm. It is compatible with a number of deep-well and 96-well plates. The Heater-Shaker can be used simultaneously with other Opentrons modules.

The Heater-Shaker GEN1 is compatible with the new Opentrons Flex Robot when paired with the Flex Heater-Shaker Caddy and Calibration Adapter. The caddy sits below the deck to enable below-deck cable routing and labware placed on modules remain closer to the deck surface. The calibration adapter is used to calibrate the location of the module.

Yes! When carrying out multiple protocols on a Heater-Shaker Module, it may be required to have the module heat, but not shake. This option is possible on the Heater-Shaker Module.

The Heater-Shaker Module can assist in automating a variety of wetlab workflows. Here is an example of a DNA Extraction protocol leveraging the Heater-Shaker Module.

It is possible to use multiple modules of the same type on the OT-2. This is true for our Temperature Module, Magnetic Module, and Heater-Shaker Module. For a walkthrough on setting this up for your OT-2 and considerations when using multiple modules, please reference this guide.
