Laboratory shakers are a valuable tool in a variety of shaking and mixing activities. It consists of an orbiting or horizontally moving platform driven by a motor. A material must first be placed onto or into the machine by being placed in a flask or tube. In order to combine the ingredients, plates then vibrate back and forth or in a circle. Different vessels can be accommodated on the shaker's platform. Many include features like programmable temperature settings and varying shaking speed. When using multiple ingredients, Laboratory shaking machine aid in the creation of a homogeneous mixture.
