Veterinary Equipment

SKS carries shakers and rockers that can be used for cell cultures, DNA extractions, general mixing, and other lab applications. Shakers are used to mix substances with either a forceful gyroscopic nutation or a horizontal or orbital oscillation. Opt for the BioMixer or MiniMixer 3-dimensional shaker for moderately aggressive mixing to provide foam-free mixing in blood tubes, centrifuge tubes, or a variety of flat vessels. Other shakers available are the Orbi-Blotter, MultiTherm, Incu-Shaker, or Orbi-Shaker to meet diverse needs. For a less aggressive mixing, to create a wave motion, or gentle swirl, choose from the BenchRocker 2D variable speed rocker, or a three-dimensional rocker, like the BenchRocker 3D gyratory rocker.

Scales are a critical tool for many veterinary hospitals and labs. Triple beam balances are available with a wide range of capacities and weighing platforms. Designed specifically to weigh small animals, the Ohaus triple beam balance with an animal weighing container, could be a perfect addition to any veterinary lab or hospital. Balance scales like the Ohaus Harvard Junior, could also be a useful tool. This balance features two interchangeable pans, allowing a broad range of objects to be weighed. Additionally, SKS carries a range of digital scales offered to simplify measuring, and ultimately reducing errors that occur with manual calculations. The Scout Pro Ohaus scale is a portable digital scale with a simple two button operation, capable of weighing in multiple units.
