MaxQ™ 5000 Floor Model Incubating and Refrigerating Shakers, Thermo Scientific


Lab-Line MaxQ™
SHKE5000-7 SHKA5000-1CE SHKA5000-7 SHKE5000 SHKA5000-8CE SHKE5000-8CE SHKE5000-1CE SHKA5000
MaxQ™ 5000 orbital shakers are ideal for solubility studies, extraction procedures, cell cultures, general mixing, hybridization, bacterial suspensions, plasmid purification, protein expression, staining, destaining, and washing procedures

Analog units feature variable speed controlled by a rotary dial, a DC motor, and an LED digital display of temperature. An integrated tachometer monitors and displays speed in rpm to guarantee accurate setting, and the timer allows for continuous operation or timed shaking from 1–60 minutes.

Digital units feature variable speed control, adjustable with up/down arrows, and a solid-state, brushless DC motor. Separate LED displays for temperature, speed, and operating time. Speed is adjustable in 1rpm increments. Shaker shutdown, audible and visual signals indicate speed deviations ±10% of setpoint, and temperature deviations of ±1°C of setpoint. Timer allows for continuous operation or timed shaking from 0.1–999 minutes, or from 0.1–999 hours. Soft-start feature helps prevent sudden starts and stops to eliminate splashing of vessel contents and wetting of flask closure. Setpoint retention retains parameters during power failure and restarts unit automatically after power is restored. RS-232 interface allows remote monitoring of temperature, speed, and time. Built-in recorder jack allows output to chart recorder for a permanent record of temperature.

Shakers feature a large, slanted viewing window allowing observation of flask contents without opening the door. A foot pedal opens the door automatically, providing hands-free operation. The door features a flexible gasket that seals tightly against the cabinet. The triple eccentric drive enables continuous 24-hour operation, handles heavier loads, and provides smooth uniform agitation of full or unbalanced loads even at high speeds. Monitor and control chamber temperature with PID temperature controller. Visual, user-adjustable overtemperature safety signal with independent thermostat provides additional backup by controlling the heat if the main controller fails. Shakers feature a powder-coated, cold-rolled steel exterior. A strong, ABS housing surrounds and protects the polyester control panel. A safety interlock stops platform motion when the lid is open. The easy-access drain system offers convenience in draining and disinfecting the system. A drip pan built into the chamber floor under the platform contains spills and protects the chamber from damage. Units also feature retractable foot casters and access ports on the side of the cabinet for thermocouples, gassing manifolds, or sensors.

Certifications: UL and C-UL listed. CE marked.
