The Barnstead MaxQ 5000 Incubating Floor Model Shaker offers you convenience, flexibility in temperature, and consistency in a large capacity format. This incubator shaker can accommodate six 4L flasks, four 6L flasks or six 2800mL Fernbach flasks, and features hands free operation with a foot pedal.

This floor model shaker features a triple eccentric drive for smooth operation even with heavy loads, up to 34Kg, and can be operated continuously, or in timed functions up to 999 hours. This floor model shaker has a variable speed control that ranges between 15- 500rpm with a soft start to prevent splashing. Users can set temperatures, alarm parameters, and view individual readings for time temperature and speed from the digital display.

The Barnstead MaxQ 5000 has a slanted viewing window that allows users to monitor their samples without interrupting a session or disturbing the temperature. Features a wide temperature range of between 10°C above ambient to +60°C with an accuracy of ±0.1°C and is an ideal choice for lab applications such as cell culture, staining and destaining, plasmid purification, extraction procedures, protein expression, solubility studies, and many others.


  • Triple eccentric drive mechanism gives you continuous 24-hour operation and allows you to shake and stir large and uneven loads, smoothly and uniformly
  • Spacious chamber holds four 6L flasks
  • Easy-access drain system with quick disconnect fitting permits easy clean up of spills
  • Drip pan under platform contains spills
  • Using the built-in foot pedal, you can open the door to transfer vessels, hands free
  • Retractable foot casters allow easy positioning in the lab
  • Observe flask contents without opening the door through a large viewing window
  • Access ports for probes, thermocouples or sensors provided through side of cabinet wall
  • 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
  • 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
