from $5,783.00sale $5,204.70 (save 10%)

Combine incubated and refrigerated temperatures with a small footprint by using Thermo Scientific™ MaxQ™ 4450 Benchtop Orbital Shakers. These versatile shakers are ideal for incubating a small number of vessels and are used for cell culture, solubility studies, extraction procedures, protein expression and many other applications. Warranty: 5-yr parts, 2-yr labor, 10-yr on drive.

Key Features:

  • • Clear, scratch-resistant lid allows unobstructed sample viewing without disturbing chamber temperature
  • • Chamber holds four 1L flasks
  • • Choose from two temperature ranges: incubated (5°C above ambient to 80°C) or with a cooling coil option that requires a chiller (5°C below ambient to 80°C)
  • • Monitor and control chamber temperature range with ±0.1°C accuracy at 37°C
  • • Triple eccentric drive handles heavy loads, uniform agitation and continuous 24-hour operation, even at high speeds
  • • Overtemperature safety feature with independent thermostat provides additional backup by controlling heat if main temperature controller fails
  • • Interlock stops platform when lid is opened

Digital Models:

  • • Three individual LED displays: speed, time and temperature
  • • Variable speed control from 15 to 500rpm
  • • Continuous and timed operation from 0.1 hour up to 999 hours or 0.1 to 999 min.
  • • Shaker shutdown and audible/visual alarms signal temperature deviations or if unit operates ±10% of set speed, preventing shaker from walking
  • • Soft-start feature eliminates sudden starts and stops, splashing of vessel contents or wetting of flask closure
  • • Set point retention retains parameters during power failure and restarts unit automatically after power is restored
  • • Solid-state DC brushless motor is maintenance-free

Operating Chiller:

  • • Provides a refrigerated atmosphere
  • • For plasmid purification and protein expression in bacteria for use with MaxQ 4450 with cooling coil option
  • • Achieve temperature ranges from 20° to 30°C
