Thermo Scientific MaxQ 2000 and 3000 Benchtop Open-Air Platform Shakers increase sample capacity simply by changing the platform. The MaxQ 2000 and 3000 open-air platform shakers are durable and easy to use. They are paired with a variety of platform sizes for increased sample capacity. They have a five-year warranty on parts, one year labor and lifetime on drive mechanism.
These shakers are ideally suited for multiple applications, such as general mixing, cell cultures, solubility studies, extraction procedures, diagnostic testing, and many other applications that require shaking. Shakers are reliable in analog or digital operating systems with the choice of three platform sizes, combining ease of use with durability and accuracy.
Platform sizes accept loads up to 35 lb. on the 2000 and 50 lb. on the 3000. They operate in temperature ranges of 0° to 40°C (104°F), 20 to 80% non-condensing humidity. They can be used in a variety of incubators, warm rooms, environmental chambers and refrigerators. Digital models feature a maintenance-free, solid-state DC brushless motor. Analog models have variable speed from 40 to 400rpm, controlled by a rotary dial monitored accurately by a traditional tachometer.
Timed studies can be performed with timed operation from one to 60 min. or operate shaker in continuous mode. Digital models have variable speed control from 15 to 500 rpm. They offer continuous and timed operation from 0.1 minutes. to 999 minutes
Speed and operating time can be displayed simultaneously on two individual LED displays. They feature shaker shutdown and audible/visual alarms signal if unit operates ±10% of set speed, preventing shaker from walking. A user-adjustable speed calibration can be performed using a digital handheld tachometer, where verification is required and protocols can be standardized.
The unbalanced load sensor stops platform motion when excess vibration is detected and visual/audible alarms signal until condition is corrected. A soft-start feature eliminates sudden starts and stops, splashing of vessel contents or wetting of flask closure. This retains parameters during power failure and restarts unit automatically after power is restored. An RS232 interface allows remote monitoring of speed and time.
