Thermo Scientific MaxQ 4000 Incubated Shaker - Digital
Part Number: SHKE4000
SHKE4000 Large Incubated Bench-Top Shaker
You'll get unmatched power, accuracy, and reproducible results with Thermo Scientific MaxQ shakers, and more. In fact, once they're set up in your lab, you'll see how the long list of innovative product features translates to multiple benefits for your team, assuring you effectiveness, efficiency, and productivity.
Triple eccentric drive mechanism gives you continuous 24-hour operation and allows you to shake and stir large and uneven loads, smoothly and uniformly. Plus, it's guaranteed for life.
Spacious chamber holds six 2L flasks.
View speed, time and temperature simultaneously.
Choose from three temperature ranges.
Clear lid allows sample viewing without disturbing chamber atmosphere.
Monitor and control chamber temperature range with ±0.1°C accuracy at 37°C
Over-temperature safety feature with independent thermostat provides additional backup by controlling heat if main temperature controller fails
Safety interlock stops platform motion when lid is opened
Applications: Cell culture, Extraction procedures, General mixing, Staining and destaining, Hybridizations, Solubility studies, Plasmid purification, Bacterial suspensions, Washing procedures, Protein expression in bacteria
Digital Operating System
Variable speed control from 15 to 500 rpm
Continuous/timed operation from 0.1 hour to 999 hours or 0.1 minute to 999 minutes.
View speed, operating time and temperature simultaneously on three individual LED displays.
Visual/audible alarms alert you to temperature deviations. Heat turns off if temperature deviates ±1°C of set point.
Shaker shuts down and visual/audible alarms signal if unit operates ±10% of set speed, preventing shaker from walking.
User-adjustable speed calibration can be performed using a digital handheld tachometer, where verification is required and protocols can be standardized.
Unbalanced load sensor stops platform motion when excess vibration is detected and visual/audible alarms signal until condition is corrected.
Soft start feature eliminates sudden starts and stops, splashing of vessel contents or wetting of flask closure.
Retains parameters during power failure and restarts unit automatically after power is restored.
Optional Gassing Manifold with 8 Outlets
A gassing manifold allows you to inject gas into the sample vessel while the temperature control and shaking continue.
This item is sold separately.
Platforms for SHKE4000
Universal platforms allow you to place different sizes of labware on a single platform. Clamps for various flask and test tube sizes hold the labware in place. After selecting a platform, purchase clamps below or use our MaxQ 4000 Clamp Guide.
Dedicated platforms come installed with the maximum capacity of clamps for the designated labware size. The platform is ready to be used.
18" x 18" Dedicated Platforms
Clamps for SHKE4000
Clamps fit on the Universal Platforms holding the labware in place and accommodate various flask and test tube sizes. The platform will hold all sizes, so you can mix and match clamps for the various labware you have. Each clamp is sold separately.
Max Clamp Capacity per Platform
Part Number: 30129
Includes (1) microplate clamp, (2) 125ml flask clamps, (4) 250ml flask clamps, (4) 500ml flask clamps, (2) 1L flask clamps, and (2) 2L flask clamps.
Part Number: SHK4000-8GM
A gassing manifold allows you to inject gas into the sample vessel while the temperature control and shaking continue.. . Example of Use: Silicone tubing is added to each outlet. An Erlenmeyer flask with a silicone stopper holds the tissue culture media, serum and mammalian cell line and sits in a clamp on the shaker platform. In the silicone stopper is an outlet and inlet for the addition of CO2. The other end of the silicone tubing is connected to the inlet so that the media is buffered by the addition of CO2.
Part Number: 3524-46
A utility tray platform does not accept or require clamps. It provides a non-slip surface to hold petri-dishes, Pyrex dishes, microplates and smaller flasks at low RPM's. The maximum shaking speed is 150 rpm.
Part Number: 3524-60
Dedicated Adjustable Vessel Platform 18x18
Part Number: 300349
Place this on a platform and various sizes of flasks will adhere to the surface. The adhesive flask mat measures 9'' x 9'' but it can be cut to fit your needs. It is also reusable. The maximum shaking speed for the mat is 250 rpm, otherwise your labware may come off.
