MaxQ 4450 Incubated Orbital Shakers 
by Thermo Fisher Scientific

Thermo Scientific Compact Benchtop Incubated Shakers
Models with cooling coild require a chiller
MaxQ 4450 Shakes are available with or without a cooling coil. These models are designed for incubating a small number of vessels in a variety of molecular biology, cell culture and dissolution studies. Shakers feature a scratch-resistant lid for easy viewing of samples. Select models with cooling coil pumps a mixture of ethylene glycol and water to achieve temperatures from 20° to 30° C within the chamber. 
  • Available with or without cooling coils
  • Clear lid allows sample viewing without disturbing internal temperature
  • Ideal for incubating a small number of vessels
  • Capacity: 11"-by-13" (279 mm x 330 mm) platform holds up to four one-liter flasks
  • Speed Range: 15 to 500 rpm
  • Maximum load: 35 lbs. (15.9 kg)
  • Product Dimensions: 27.2 x 14.1 x 15.8 in.(691 x 358 x 401 mm)
  • Orbit: .75 in. (1.9 cm)
  • Manufacturer Warranty: Five-year on parts, one year on labor and lifetime on drive mechanism

Features and Benefits of MaxQ 4450 Incubated Orbital Shakers 

Applications: Cell cultures, Solubility studies, Extraction procedures, Plasmid purification, General mixing, Bacterial suspensions, Staining & de-staining, Washing procedures, Hybridizations and Protein expression in bacteria

New Operating Chiller for Plasmid Purification and Protein Expression in Bacteria

  • A refrigerated chiller is required to achieve temperature ranges from 20°C to 30°C in the shaker chamber
  • The chiller pumps a mixture of ethylene glycol and water through a cooling coil in the shaker. A fan blows air over the cooling coil to obtain a refrigerated atmosphere (you must order the cooling-coil model to use the chiller


  • Shakers feature a triple eccentric drive that handles heavy workloads, provides uniform agitation and enables continuous 24-hour operation even at high speeds
  • Precisely monitor and control chamber temperature over complete range with ±0.1°C accuracy, and ±0.5°C uniformity at 37°C with PID temperature controller

Digital Operating System

  • Solid state DC brushless motor, variable speed control from 15 to 500 rpm, and continuous and timed operation from 0.1 hour up to 999 hours or 0.1 minute to 999 minutes
  • Displayed time counts up during continuous operation and down during timed runs
  • View speed, operating time and temperature simultaneously on three individual LED displays which helps minimize errors in establishing running conditions
  • Visual/audible signals alert you to temperature deviations. Heat turns off if temperature deviates ±1°C of set point
  • Shaker shut down and audible/visual alarms signal if unit operates ±10% of set speed preventing shaker from walking
  • Soft start feature eliminates splashing of vessel contents, wetting of flask closure, and helps prevent sudden starts and stops
  • Set point retention retains parameters during power failure and restarts unit automatically after power is restored
  • RS232 interface allows remote monitoring of speed, time and temperature
  • Monitor temperature with built-in recorder jack for output to chart recorders for a permanent record.
  • Over-temperature safety feature with independent thermostat provides additional backup by controlling heat if main temperature controller fails
  • Safety interlock stops platform motion when the lid is open
Orbit Diameter 0.75" (19 mm)
Maximum Load 35 lbs. (15.9 kg)
Shipping Weight 77 lbs. (35kg)
Operating Temperature 5° C above ambient to 80° C, ±0.1° C in flask
