IKA celebrates double success at the German Design Awards 2017


Two shakers from the laboratory equipment manufacturer IKA are among the products honored at this year’s awards: The ‘Trayster digital’ won the German Design Award in the category ‘Excellent product design – industry’, and the ‘Roller 10 digital’ received a ‘Special Mention’.
The ‘Trayster digital’ is a versatile overhead shaker. It is ideal for a broad spectrum of applications with biological samples, for example for separating and mixing powdered and liquid samples. Thanks to a range of freely combinable attachments, it is also ideal for use with the most commonly used vessel sizes.
Thanks to its eccentrically mounted rollers, ‘Roller 10 digital’ provides a smooth rocking and rolling action. It can be used for shaking solids and fluids in tubes or cylindrical bottles of various diameters and sizes.
The German Design Awards honor innovative products and projects that represent pioneering contributions to German and international design. The distinction ‘Special Mention’ is awarded to products with a design showing particularly outstanding features or solutions and is an accolade honoring the particular engagement of businesses and designers.
