IKA is introducing the first magnetic stirrer with a lifetime warranty

Scientists Phil S. Baran and Jin-Quan Yu supporting product launch
Staufen, Germany – February 8th, 2017 – In close cooperation with two world-renowned scientists, IKA, leading manufacturer of laboratory and analytical equipment, is introducing the first magnetic stirrer with a lifetime warranty. 
The new IKA Plate (RCT digital) is enclosed within a hardened glass, providing high chemical resistance and more safety for scientists’ work in laboratories. Phil S. Baran and Jin-Quan Yu, world-renowned professors of chemistry at the Scripps Research Institute in San Diego, CA, USA describe the new magnetic stirrer with its time-saving thermal abilities and modern design as standing within a class of its own. For the purpose of the product launch, both Phil S. Baran and Jin-Quan Yu took the lead roles in an extensive movie production. A 4.8km (3 miles) race track in Germany served as setting for Jin-Quan Yu taking on Phil S. Baran in an exciting car race. The video production “THE RACE” was initiated by IKA and is the first movie featuring two scientists in a leading role; it is launched globally and the trailer alone has attracted more than 300,000 views.
“We share the same vision: a relentless pursuit of the best technology to make scientists’ work more successful”, says René Stiegelmann about the collaboration with Phil S. Baran and Jin-Quan Yu.
Strongly standing by its product and technology, IKA is offering a lifetime warranty on the magnetic stirrer – unparalleled in the industry; scientists can focus on their experiments with a reliable stir plate.
New design features
IKA emphasizes ease-of-use by design simplicity: reduced forms and operating elements meet the modernity of smartphones: IKA not only focuses on hardened glass because of visibility, chemical resistance and safety, it also optically changes the game of a magnetic stirrer with a glass surface. The IKA Plate (RCT digital) improves over time with regular firmware updates.
Excellent temperature distribution
Using Alnico magnetic technology, the IKA Plate (RCT digital) achieves excellent temperature stability and high residual induction. It also provides for maximum vortex.  
Control of kinetics and sensitive reactions
The integrated timer and counter function supports the control of kinetics and sensitive reactions; the IKA SmartTemp® function protects users intelligently and predictably.
