New thermoshakers for smallest volumes

Nov 03 2020

Two new thermoshakers round off the IKA Matrix product portfolio: The Matrix Orbital Delta Plus and Matrix Delta Plus for laboratory applications in the Life Sciences sector can also cool. These compact devices improve optimal mixing of small and very small volumes. This also results from the ingenious product design, which, in the case of the Matrix Orbital Delta Plus, has been awarded the 2021 German Design Award.

Thermoshakers with cooling function

Since October 2020 there are two new thermoshakers in the IKA Matrix range. The Matrix Delta Plus cools samples to -30°C and heats them up to 110°C. The Matrix Orbital Delta Plus can do it all: It mixes, heats and cools. Simultaneous mixing and temperature control provides a better mix result and shorter reaction times. Up to 3000 rpm and 3 mm shaking stroke contribute to controlled, rapid and even mixing of the most challenging samples.

Both devices can carry out reproducible perfect processing of volumes at the milliliter scale. Attachments are detected automatically.

Outstanding design for simple handling

IKA has been awarded the prestigious Design Prize - the German Design Award 2021 - for the Matrix Orbital Delta Plus. Thanks to the diecast housing, the Matrix thermoshaker sits on a sturdy mount, even on a small setup area. A clear shape, smooth surfaces and an ingenious layout means that the Matrix Orbital Delta Plus not only looks good, it also makes handling easier: It is easy and quick to change the wide variety of attachments for the most varied of reaction vessels; the special attachment fixing system improves temperature transfer; and the outer plastic casing ensures that users never burn their fingers. 

Accessories for all Life Science applications

The new thermoshakers form part of the user-friendly IKA product portfolio in the field of Life Sciences. They feature the familiar and self-explanatory IKA menu guidance system. In combination with incubation shakers, centrifuges, pipettes and the dry block heaters, they facilitate an optimum workflow in the field of Sample Handling, Liquid Handling and Cell Handling. A wide range of accessories is available. All of the equipment in the IKA Matrix range can be combined with the most varied of micro-titration plates, deep well plates, Eppendorf reaction vessels, PCR strips, Greiner tubes, micro-plates and cuvettes. The IKA ThermoCover prevents the formation of condensation on the vessel cover, meaning that the sample concentration remains constant. And a temperature sensor in the attachment ensures accuracy and homogeneity of the temperature, which, by the way, can also be read off on the display.
