Platelet Shakers + Platelet Shaker Incubators

Platelet shakers otherwise known as platelet agitators are commonly used in hospital blood banks, blood centres and clinical research laboratories to store platelets for up to 5 days.

A platelet shaker prevents the clumping of stationery platelets in blood by providing a constant, gentle, reciprocating action which continually mixes platelets inside platelet bags.

To keep platelets well oxygenated and at a constant temperature platelet shakers have perforated drawers to allow air to circulate.
Platelet agitators are used inside of a suitable refrigerated incubator that is set to operate between 20–24 ºC.
