Allows for twice as many reactions to be performed


Average Rating 4.7

Application Area:

Bio molecules

Very easy to set up and use. Saves so much space in a very busy fume hood. Allows for twice as many reactions to be performed. Very flexible. Only one power lead and plug needed.

Nice product


Average Rating 3.3

Application Area:

Heating liquids

IKA magnetic stirrers are sophisticated and digital. The temperature is digitally controlled. They are bit costly.

Little magic magnetic stirrer.


Average Rating 5.0

Application Area:

Stirring of solutions

Easy to use, basically turn it on, adjust your speed settings and let it do its magic. I use the IKA magnetic stirrer myPlate. It is under 6 months old. I have used heating hot plates in the past which are good for their purpose, but currently not needing heat to stir my testing solution. Great little device and is very mobile, if in the field. It runs as low as 100W so it is great for solar invertor set up in the field.

Great machines, beautiful designs and amazing aftercare service


Average Rating 5.0

Application Area:

Chemical synthesis

The IKA RCT digital stirrer hotplate is an excellent addition to any laboratory. The clear indication of temperature and speed allow you to record the exact parameters of any experiment. As with all other IKA products, the build quality is excellent and can be relied on for all types of mixing experiments. The angled exterior allows for easy cleaning if there are any spills and prevents ingress of material into the device itself. A very well designed and built piece of equipment.

Great piece of kit for an ice cream kitchen


Average Rating 5.0

Application Area:

Ice cream pasteurisation

I have owned both an IKA CMAG HS 7 and a HS 10 hot plate for several years and use them to pasteurise large volumes of ice cream mix. Very happy with the large ceramic heating top on the HS 10: its high heating rate allows me to pasteurise around 10 litres of ice cream mix. Very accurate temperature readings and well built. I'll shortly be ordering a second HS 10 hot plate.

Great product and company, will continue to buy from them!


Average Rating 5.0

Application Area:

Organic synthesis

IKA magnetic stir plates are excellent. They are accurate and easy to use with lots of high end functionality. The customer service and price was also excellent from purchase to continued service afterwards.

One of the best!


Average Rating 5.0

Application Area:

Heating and stirring organic reactions

One of the most reliable stir plates available. Heating is very accurate, especially when paired with the temperature probe. Built in timer is also highly useful. The glass top is extremely easy to clean.

The best magnetic stirrer on the market.


Average Rating 5.0

Application Area:

Medicinal chemistry

We have tried several brands of magnetic stirrers in our lab but none came close to the quality and robustness of the IKA RCT Basic. They are easy to use and reliable, allowing the user to leave reactions for prolonged periods, stirring and/or heating with no cause for concern. Though 5 stars given for after sales care, we haven't actually needed any after care as nothing has ever gone wrong! Our current plates are still going strong (mine are over 8 years old!) and we await the delivery of 6 more units; expecting them to last for many years to come. A top quality product at an affordable price.

Cheap, but super robust and convenient!


Average Rating 5.0

Application Area:

Chemical synthesis

The Magnetic Stirrer_Synthesis 2 module is great for lab scale synthesis. Its temperature-controlled heat block is very convenient. Digital display for temp and stir rate is awesome. The best part is the price!

Great and reliable hotplates.


Average Rating 4.3

Application Area:

Organic chemical synthesis

IKA hotplates are very reliable and easy to use. Even though I preferred the old-school analog ones, I got used to the digital ones that are quite easy to use. A new line of hotplates gets even a lifetime warranty, which is extremely appealing. You definitely get what you pay for.

IKA magnetic stirrers are the world's best-selling professional lab mixers. There is a complete range of IKA magnetic stirrers to handle various quantities, either with or without heating capabilities. Used with open or closed vessels, IKA magnetic hot plate stirrers easily master even complex tasks. For example, they precisely and effectively regulate the set temperature with the help of a contact thermometer. They also enable multiple syntheses in up to 36 vessels simultaneously. Because IKA magnetic stirrers require 25% less energy than other manufacturer's products; IKA devices are good for the environment and also keep your energy costs low. Functionality, safety, and longevity are the main focus in the development of IKA's magnetic stirrers. IKA is introducing two new magnetic stirrers, the IKA Plate (RCT digital) and the C-Mag HS 7 control, both with a lifetime warranty.
