Vitl Life Science Solutions, a member of the ITL Group, has announced the expansion of its range of interchangeable, intuitive Heated Modules, which will be available from the end of September 2018.
Vitl’s Heated Modules are accessories required to operate the Ther-Mix Heated Mixer and Flexi-Therm Dry Block Heater. HM04 and HM05 are the newest additions to the range, maintaining their unrivalled reputation of exceptional temperature accuracy and efficient sample heating.
Ideal for use in a wide range of preparation techniques, Vitl’s current range of Heated Modules can accommodate 0.5ml, 1.5ml and 2ml microcentrifuge tubes, as well as 96 and 384 well microplates. New modules, HM04 and HM05, have been specifically designed to hold 15ml and 50ml conical tubes, with various module variants to be designed in the near future to accommodate a wider variety of consumables.
With on-board intelligence and extensive memory capabilities, the Heated Modules eliminate the need to stand over samples, manually switching different mixing speed and temperatures within a protocol, therefore providing the freedom to increase lab efficiency. All modules in the range offer quick selection options and are programmed with self-limiting mixing speeds and temperature settings for ultimate user-safety and sample care. With superior programming functionality users are able to fully customise, create and store their profiles, even if the module is moved between the Ther-Mix and Flexi-Therm.
Tom Ackrill, Business Development Manager, Vitl Life Science Solutions said: “At Vitl our mission is to produce high-end laboratory instruments with the wow factor that combine unique ergonomic design with superb functionality to deliver accurate results every time. We’re thrilled to expand our range of intuitive, interchangeable Heated Modules with the goal of making laboratory processes more efficient for researchers and technicians around the world. Therefore, the newest modules, HM04 and HM05, have the additional capability to support a wider variety of laboratory consumables.”
