Heater-Shaker Module

$3,750

The Opentrons Heater-Shaker Module provides on-deck heating and orbital shaking of microplates. The module can be heated to 95℃, 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 on your Opentrons platform.

Frequently Asked Questions

For FAQs about the OT-2 and other products, click here.

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.
