Floor model shakers

Save lab space and complete large capacity applications with our floor and stackable orbital shakers. Combine incubated and refrigerated shaker capabilities with easy-to-use, ergonomic controls to maximize application flexibility and production. Our high performance models offer HEPA filtration for maximum protection against cross contamination and a directed airflow system which provides temperature uniformity and ideal growth conditions even when the units are full.

Reliability

reliable floor and stackable shaker

Triple eccentric drive handles heavy loads, uniform agitation and continuous 24-hour operation even at high speeds.

Simplicity

easy-to-use floor shaker

View actual and set-points of speed and time simultaneously on the backlit display while monitoring and controlling chamber temperature range with ±0.1°C accuracy at 37°C.

Flexibility

flexible floor model shaker

Versatile shakers allow for flasks up to 6L, dual stack platforms for high throughput of smaller vessels, and stable shelving for your growing lab needs.



Floor or stackable shaker?

floor model lab shaker

Provide the capability to shake large volume flasks up to 6L with consistent temperature monitoring and continuous 24 hour operation.

  • Access ports provided for probes, thermocouples, gassing manifolds or sensors
  • The drain system with valve makes it easy to eliminate spilled liquid, reducing the risk of contamination
  • Triple eccentric drive handles heavy loads, uniform agitation and continuous 24 hr. operation, even at high speeds
  • Crevice-free, stainless-steel interior with curved corners for easy cleaning
stackable lab shakers

Combine orbital shaking with general purpose temperature control for added versatility. The durable, dynamically balanced orbital shaker mechanism ensures optimum oxygenation and nutrient mixing, reduced cell clumping, and prevention of splashing

  • Stack 2-3 units (depending on the model) to maximize floor space
  • Large viewing windows allow for easy monitoring
  • Lighted interior chambers allow for viewing without disrupting chamber atmosphere
  • View speed, operating time and temperature simultaneously

Optimization of protein expression in an E. coli system using Thermo Scientific MaxQ 8000 Refrigerated Stackable Shakers

MaxQ 8000 application note

This experiment shows the importance of optimizing incubation parameters for recombinant protein expression in E. coli, but also that it can be achieved over hours rather than days when using good experimental design, coupled with superior equipment.
