This should be fun. I have a Fisher 850-micron sieve, too--wrote about it here a while back (with pics).
I think that 30 seconds isn't enough vibration. I think on MPE Chicago's site, they mention requiring a 5-minute vibration. Just shaking 5g samples until the resulting amount in the pan stabilized took several minutes.
Did you really achieve "stabilization," as you said? In my limited experience sieving I found that the more I shook the more coffee passed through the sieve (hence the need for a more consistent method of agitation), but then again I never went at it for more than a minute.
