MaxQ™ 7000 Benchtop Water Bath Shakers, Thermo Scientific
Shakers and Mixers
Ideal for applications that require a controlled temperature bath combined with orbital shaking motion
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 and 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. For monitoring temperature, the built-in recorder jack allows output to a chart recorder for a permanent record.
The cooling coil accessory allows the bath to reach near-ambient temperature and below. Gable covers prevent heat loss and minimize evaporation. The stainless steel gable cover is for use in operations where temperatures reach up to 90°C (194°F). The Plexiglas® gable cover is for use in operations where temperatures reach up to 65°C (149°F). The four auxiliary platform suspension arms allow for rapid platform changing. The movable dolly allows for under lab bench operation.
Shakers feature an easy access drain system with quick disconnect, located in the front of the cabinet for convenience in draining and disinfecting the system. Twin baffles in the chamber minimize splashing and turbulence even at high speeds. Ideal for solubility studies, extraction procedures, cell cultures, general mixing, hybridization, bacterial suspensions, diagnostic tests, staining, destaining, and washing procedures. 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 bath 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, and a seamless stainless steel interior with rounded corners. A strong, ABS housing surrounds and protects the polyester control panel.
