MaxQ™ 2000 Open-Air Platform Shakers
by Thermo Scientific

Maxq 2000
Open-Air Platform Shakers
  • Choose between analog and digital operating systems
  • Choice of three platform sizes--increase capacity by simply changing the platform
  • Unbalanced load sensor and soft start feature prevent variety of malfunctions
  • 5-year warranty on parts, 1 year on labor and lifetime on drive mechanism

Thermo Scientific’s MaxQ 2000 Open-Air Platform Shakers can accommodate three platform sizes—13" x 11" (330 mm X 279 mm), 18" x 18" (457 mm x 457 mm) and 24" x 18" (610 mm x 457 mm)—and are available in both analog and digital configurations. The shakers can be set to operate in continuous or timed mode. In addition, the combination of an unbalanced load sensor and a soft start feature protects samples from a variety of problems and malfunctions. Applications include cell cultures, bacterial suspensions, solubility studies, staining, hybridization and more. When ordering, please specify the shaker, platform and clamps desired (platforms and clamps found on accessory page).

  • Cell cultures
  • Bacterial suspensions
  • Solubility studies
  • Staining
  • Extraction procedures
  • Destaining
  • Diagnostic tests
  • Washing procedures
  • General mixing
  • Hybridization
  • Triple eccentric drive enables continuous 24-hour operation, handles heavier loads and provides smooth uniform agitation of full or unbalanced loads even at high speeds
  • Units operate in temperature ranges of 0°C to 40°C and humidity conditions from 20 to 80% non-condensing, enabling them to be used in incubators, warm rooms, environmental chambers and refrigerators
Analog Operating Systems
  • DC motor and variable speed control from 40 to 400 rpm, controlled by a rotary dial
  • Integrated tachometer monitors and displays speed in rpm to guarantee accurate setting
  • Operate shaker in continuous mode or set timer from 1 to 60 minutes for time studies
  • Metal locking tab on the speed control knob prevents speed from increasing or decreasing if control knob is mistakenly bumped
Digital Operating Systems
  • 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 and operating time simultaneously on 2 individual LED displays which helps minimize errors in establishing running conditions
  • Shaker shut down and audible/visual alarms signal if unit operates ±10% of set speed preventing shaker from walking
  • User-adjustable speed calibration can be performed using a digital hand held tachometer where verification is required and protocols can be standardized
  • Unbalanced load sensor stops platform motion when excess vibration is detected due to unbalanced load. Visual/audible alarm signals until condition is corrected
  • 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 and time
Orbit Diameter: 0.75" (19 mm)
Maximum Load: 35 lbs. (15.9 kg)
Operating Temperature: 0 to 40°C, 20 to 80% RH, non-condensing
