During development of the mill, particular emphasis was placed on user safety.
IKA offers an exemplary and diverse range of dry block heaters designed to accommodate various interchangeable heating blocks. They provide precise temperature control for reproducible results. These digital block heaters are ideal for melting and boiling point determination, enzyme reactions, incubation and activation of cultures, immunoassays, DNA denaturation, culture media tests, coagulation tests, blood urea- nitrogen determinations and in situ hybridizations. In addition, these dry block heaters are also designed for the precise heating of PCR tubes, PCR strips, microcentrifuge tubes, microplates and cuvettes.
IKA heating baths - the best choice when it comes to heating and tempering in the lab. IKA heating baths shine due to their stellar safety characteristics. All baths are equipped with a double jacket for protection against burns and a safety temperature monitor to keep the bath from over heating. Also, the heating bath's safety elements are checked each time it is switched on. IKA baths are universally suitable for use with oil or water. Functionality, safety, and longevity are the main goals in the development of IKA heating baths.
IKA hotplates allow for precise and safe heating and tempering due to a platform made from glass ceramics that ensures the best possible chemical resistance. The universal lab hotplates offer a high level of safety due to a fixed safety circuit, the Hot Top Indicator, and the error code display. An electronic contact thermometer may be connected for highly precise temperature control. Functionality, safety, and longevity are the main goals in the development of IKA hotplates.
IKA offers a wide range of high-precision temperature control systems according to DIN 12876. The product portfolio includes immersion circulators, heating bath circulators and recirculating chillers..
Drying ovens have a wide range of applications: whether in an industrial setting for production, laboratory or quality control or for scientific research and development. They are being used almost daily and require high levels of safety, reliability and user-friendliness. Equipped with these features, they will provide ideal drying results, for burn-in, hardening, tempering or heating.
The IKA drying ovens have a homogenous temperature distribution and because of the free convection allow for a particularly fast and even drying process. An adjustable vent flap enables improved air exchange and a special insulation minimizes odor development during long-term usage even at high temperatures. The interior volume is 125l and up to six racks allow for optimal storage of samples. IKA offers an optional glass door oven, enabling permanent visual control of the drying process.
IKA introduces a brand new micro centrifuge ideal for applications which do not require ultra high speeds e.g., micro-filtrations and cell separations. These centrifuges feature a compact design and a small footprint which requires minimal bench space. A transparent cover allows for constant observation of the centrifuge and it can be used with both microcentrifuge and PCR strip tubes. As a safety feature, this microfuge will run only when the lid is closed.
Our rotary evaporators offer excellent distilling solutions to the demanding work of scientists. Great value, design and technology - all at your convenience!
IKA lab reactors are the ultimate systems when it comes to optimizing and reproducing chemical reaction, mixing, dispersing, and homogenization processes on a lab scale. The lab reactors can be individually customized to perform numerous tasks, including: production of crèmes and lotions, and the grinding and disintegrating of solids and fibers in liquids or polymers. Single-walled or double-walled vessels made from borosilicate glass or stainless steel are available, each with or without bottom discharge valve. Functionality, safety, and longevity are the main goals in the development of IKA laboratory reactors.
By using the IKA photo bioreactors, the cultivation of phototrophic microorganisms such as microalgae or cyanobacteria are, under carefully controlled conditions in a closed system, easily possible. Closed systems are particularly interesting in the field of research where a high microbial purity level has to be reached and contamination risks have to be reduced to a minimum. Photo bioreactors create a natural environment to grow microorganisms for scientific purposes such as for drug discovery or translational science.
By leaving the source of light apart the device can be used as a conventional bioreactor as well as a fermenter.
IKA’s small but excellent product group of vacuum pumps is perfectly suitable for many dry and oil-free applications in the lab. The devices stand out due to their high suction capacity and ease of service. Their membranes are particularly chemical resistant, as well.

The IKA AOD 1 decomposition system performs oxidative decompositions of solid and liquid organic samples under pressure in a closed system.
An absorption solution is placed in the digestion vessel, where the halogens (fluorine, chlorine, bromine and iodine) and sulphate are collected. A precise quantitative analysis of sulphur and halogens can be performed using ion chromatography, ISE, photometry or titration.
The vessels are made of a high alloyed steel, which is especially highly resistant against chlorine.
The decomposition vessels inner-walls have been treated in a way, so that a special self-regenerating catalytic surface is present, which provides exceptionally high recovery rates of 98-100% and typical decomposition times of 2 to 3 minutes.
Among others, the decomposition method is described in the following standards:
DIN 51727, DIN EN 14 582, EPA Method 5050, ASTM D808, ASTM E775, ASTM E776, ASTM D3761, ASTM D4208
