The unique, undulating motion of The Belly Dancer® shaker is designed to provide the optimal movement for tissue culture, staining and destaining gels, Northern, Southern, or Western blotting, and immunoprecipitation. The simple liquid agitation system, consisting of an orbiting platform flexibly anchored at four corners so that the platform motion, when adjusted by the platform pitch control collar, is an extremely effective combination of rocking platform mixer and orbital shaker. Agitation is gentler but more efficient than the action of ordinary shakers. The smooth combination of vertical and horizontal orbital motion allows for more rapid exchange of solvents in applications like staining and destaining gels and protects sensitive cell lines from sheering in cell culture.

The Belly Dancer® has a simple, durable construction and is made of chemically resistant materials including stainless steel and anodized aluminum parts with a high bake ester finish on the case. The Belly Dancer® comes with an open-sided platform to accommodate oversized containers and a removable, washable non-skid platform mat. The flat power cord can also pass through the door gasket of incubators without compromising the environment. The platform can easily be adjusted with the platform pitch control collar from level motion to an 8° pitch. The Belly Dancer® can hold up to 20 lbs. with extremely quiet operation. The ambient operating temperature range is 0° C to 40° C. The speed varies from 0 to 100 rpm with no cogging at slow speeds.

The 2nd Story Platform doubles the platform capacity and comes with 4.5" aluminum spacer legs and a non-skid removable mat.

The Belly Dancer® Shakerwas previously manufactured by Stovall Scientific. All IBI accessories and replacement parts are compatible with the Stovall Belly Dancer®.
