The Talboys Thermal Shake Touch and Cooling Thermal Shake Touch are designed for applications that require consistent and precise results.

With heating, cooling and shaking capabilities. The Thermal Shake Touch and Cooling Thermal Shake Touch uses interchangeable blocks to accommodate a wide variety of tubes and microplates. The easy-to-use, 4.3", color, LCD touch screen allows the user to save and visibly track progress through the live status bar for five user defined programs, each with five individual steps. The unit’s enhanced electronics and dual temperature sensors provide accurate, dependable temperature settings across the operating range.


Cell cultures, DNA, RNA, and protein studies.


  • 4.3" color LCD touch screen display provides an intuitive interface
  • Rapid heating, cooling and high speed shaking ability
  • Internal memory stores five separate 5-step programs, unlimited with USB

Operating Features

Low Profile Design: The low profile design minimizes the unit’s footprint on the bench.

LCD Touch Screen: Enables faster setting of temperature, speed, and time which can all be viewed at once. Display features on-screen help topics with operational tips available in six languages. Touch screen is compatible with rubber gloves used in labs. USB port can transfer information to a flash drive for data logging, program storage and software updates.

Program Control: Program control capabilities allow user programmable operation for automated use and memory. Storage for five separate 5-step programs, or unlimited number of programs with the use of the USB.

Temperature ramp rate: Adjustable temperature ramp rate feature separately defines the heating and cooling rate in increments of 0.5°C/min.

Single Point Calibration Mode: For maximum temperature accuracy, the single point calibration procedure allows the user to calibrate up to 6 different user defined temperatures.

Pulse Mode Feature: The unit is equipped with a pulse mode feature for quick vortex applications.

Safety Features

Cool Touch Housing: Constructed from a high-quality, heat and chemical resistant polymer. The unit’s housing remains cool to the touch throughout normal operating temperatures.

Maximum Temperature Limiting Function: Ensures the temperature will not exceed preset limits, allowing the user control of temperature sensitive samples.

Hot Top Indicator: A hot top warning light will illuminate when the temperature reaches 40°C, and will remain lit until the unit is sufficiently cooled.

Audible Alarm: In timed mode, an alarm will sound when the time reaches zero or set-point temperature is reached. Additionally, the heat function will automatically shut off if the unit recognizes an internal issue.

Using Thermal Shake Touch

Unit can operate in conditions from 5 to 35°C (41 to 95°F),maximum 80% relative humidity, non-condensing

Includes a 92" (234cm) detachable, 3-wire cord and plug (230 volt units are supplied with Euro type plug). Unit is also supplied with a 1.5mL block, clear rack, and cover. 5 year limited warranty on parts and labor.

Optional NIST Traceable Calibration Certificate provided by Troemner's

ISO/IEC 17025 accredited laboratory. Multiple data points within the temperature and speed ranges, and time function, are reported on the certificate with the associated uncertainties.
