Flexible and robust lab shaker

The Lab-Shaker LS-Z combines approved Kuhner quality and technology in a new modular system to provide maximum flexibility to our customers. The LS-Z, just like its predecessor LS-X, is a sturdy benchtop shaker designed for continuous and maintenance-free operation. The LS-Z is the perfect starter model, e.g. for universities or start-ups with limited space and resources. The shaker can be used for cultivation of microbial, plant and animal cell cultures. 

Performance characteristics

  • Compact footprint
  • Hygienic design: easy cleaning
  • Flexible: detachable control unit and power cube
  • Robust: tolerates up to 90% rel. humidity


Reliable technology by Kuhner 

The in-house designed magnetic drive system of the LS-Z shaker guarantees accurate control and low energy consumption/heat dissipation even at high speeds. The maintenance-free direct drive is long lasting, robust, and economical. Due to hygienic design, the drive is also protected from any spills.


New modular system

The LS-Z comes with three functional options: benchtop only/stand-alone, combinable with incubators from other manufacturers, or combined with the new Kuhner Kelvin+ incubator for temperature control. The LS-Z shaker will accept loads up to 25 kg and the shaking diameter can be adjusted at any time. There are three standard shaking diameters (12.5, 25 and 50 mm) with others available on request. The LS-Z shaker unit tolerates an ambient relative humidity of up to 90% and features a detachable control unit and power cube. Therefore, the LS-Z is extremely flexible regarding its installation site: it can be placed in any lab incubator or temperature controlled room.

Features for automated processes

The LS-Z has a fixed stop position, which is especially useful for automated processes. The integration in a liquid handling system was successfully performed several times already. Due to the flexible Net60 interface, the LS-Z can be controlled by nearly every external software system. 


Quality guaranteed 

As with all Kuhner products, the LS-Z is a cost effective investment in quality backed with a five year warranty.
