Description

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

Analog Models:

  • Speed is controlled by a rotary dial, monitored accurately by a traditional tachometer
  • Easy-to-read LED digital temperature display
  • Speed: 40-400rpm Integrated tachometer monitors and displays speed in rpm to guarantee an accurate setting
  • Timed: 1 to 60 min. or continuous

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

Ordering Information:

For a complete system, order platforms and clamps (sold separately).

Requires:

Universal Platform (without clamps) or Dedicated Platform (with pre-installed clamps). All MaxQ 4450 shakers with cooling coil require a chiller sold separately.

Recommended for:

  • Cell culture
  • Solubility studies
  • Extraction procedures
  • Plasmid purification
  • General mixing
  • Bacterial suspensions
  • Staining and destaining
  • Washing procedures
  • Hybridizations
  • Protein expression in bacteria
