One of the best!
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.
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!
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.
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."

Extremely satisfied customer, the IKA stirred plates play a key role in my daily work.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Medicinal chemistry

"I use IKA stirred plates every day as a researcher in medicinal chemistry. The stirred plates are user friendly, reliable. Very robust equipment. I can leave my reactions stirring overnight without worrying about a malfunction. My results are reproducible."

Good design, and user-friendly.
Rating: 4.0

  • Application Area:Synthetic chemistry and preparation of catalytic precursor

"It is noteworthy that the safety features of the magnetic stirrer are awesome. Our students can conduct their experiments under high temperature and constant stirring for a long period. With the aid of a temperature probe, we found that it is reliable when the heat loss is counted for certain reactions. Besides it is worth the money as it helped to reduce the synthesis failure. Our reaction takes a lot of money and time to succeed. We would recommend it to other departments for the wide range of application."

Great digital stir plates.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Stirring and heating reactions

"Though I cannot comment on after sales care, the stirrers look and feel top quality. I usually don’t go for digital plates but I’ve never had a problem with these."

Good customer response time.
Rating: 4.0

  • Application Area:Preparing stock solutions

"The stirrer has been a good buy for our lab. We once had an issue with the temperature cut off and upon contacting and sending the piece of equipment back for checks, we got them sorted pretty quickly."

Easy to use and really robust which is what you want in a chemistry lab.
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:Organic chemistry, reactions in batch

"Product is easy to use, really instinctive. It is also really robust, it is regularly mishandled by students and is still working fine."

Love IKA products.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Ink formulations

"IKA products in general are very easy to use. We've purchased magnetic stirrers and dispersers, both of which are used in electrode ink formulations. The disperser can be tricky to put together but there are plenty of youtube videos available to help."

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.
