Save valuable lab space with Thermo Scientific™ MaxQ™ 6000 Incubated/Refrigerated Stackable Shakers, which offer sample storage and orbital shaking with intuitive, easy-to-use digital controls. These shakers save space by stacking units two-high on the floor. Use the adapter set (available separately) to tier two 18 x 18″ platforms to double shaking capacity.

  • Stackable units accept flasks up to 6L
  • Two adjustable-height shelves provide added storage
  • Choose from two temperature ranges to fulfill a variety of molecular biology, protein expression or plasmid purification studies
  • Available in incubated or refrigerated models
  • Precisely monitor and control chamber temperature over complete range with ±0.1°C accuracy at 37°C with PID temperature controller
  • Overtemperature safety feature with independent thermostat provides additional backup by controlling heat if main temperature controller fails
  • Solid-state DC brushless motor, variable speed control from 15 to 500rpm
  • Continuous and timed operation from 0.1 hour up to 999 hours or 0.1 minute to 999 minutes
  • View speed, operating time and temperature simultaneously on three individual LED displays, which help minimize errors in establishing running conditions
  • Displayed time counts up during continuous operation and down during timed runs
  • Visual/audible signals alert user to temperature deviations; heat turns off if temperature deviates ±1°C of setpoint
  • Shaker shutdown and audible/visual alarms signal if unit operates ±10% of set speed, preventing the shaker from walking
  • Eliminate sudden starts and stops with soft start feature
  • User-adjustable speed calibration can be performed using a digital handheld tachometer, where verification is required and protocols can be standardized
  • Safety interlock stops shaking motion when the door is open
  • Platform motion stops when excess vibration is detected due to an unbalanced load
  • Retains parameters during power failure and restarts unit automatically after power is restored
  • RS-232 interface allows remote monitoring of speed, time and temperature
  • Large viewing window and internal light allow sample visibility, minimizing the need to open the door
  • Door can be hinged from the right or left by the user for convenient placement in the lab
  • 18 × 18″ platform can be dual-tiered inside the chamber to double the shaking capacity
  • Corrosion-resistant stainless-steel chamber accommodates a variety of 18 × 18″ (46 × 46cm) universal and dedicated platforms
  • Durable powder-coated, cold-rolled steel exterior construction
  • Electrical outlet inside chamber provides power for safe operation of shakers, stirrers or rotators

Overall Dimensions

  • Platform dimensions: 18 × 18″ (45.7 × 45.7cm)
  • Overal dimensions L × W × H: 33 × 27 × 40.5″ (83.9 × 69.6 × 102.9cm)
