MaxQ™ Reciprocating and Dual-Action Reciprocating/Orbital Shakers, Thermo Scientific


SHKA2506-1 SHKA2508-1CE SHKA2506 SHKA2508
The reciprocating shaker provides gentle to vigorous agitation with variable 10–250rpm speed control and is ideal for extractions, mixing blood samples, and silver staining of polyacrylamide gels

The dual-action shaker provides gentle to vigorous agitation with variable 40–400rpm speed control and is ideal for growing bacteria, dissolution studies, staining of electrophoresis gels, and extractions. This shaker offers both reciprocating linear motion with a fixed stroke length of 1.3cm (1/2"), and orbital motion in a 1.3cm (1/2") diameter orbit. A control lever changes the shaking motion while unit is stationary or in operation.

The timer on both shakers can be set for 1–60 minutes or for continuous shaking. Units operate in temperature ranges from 4 to 40°C (39 to 104°F) and noncondensing humidity conditions from 20–80%, enabling them to be used in general-purpose incubators, warm rooms, environmental chambers, and refrigerators. Shakers can be fitted with 28x33cm (11x13"); 46x46cm (18x18"); or 46x61cm (18x24") shaking platforms to accommodate a variety of labware.

This shaker offers reciprocating linear motion with an adjustable stroke length of 1.3–3.8cm (1/2–11/2") to mimic hand shaking of separatory funnels.

Certifications: UL listed. The 240V dual-action shaker is CE marked.
