No nonsense solid vortexer.
Application Area: Sample vortexing
"The Vortex Genius 3 is a solid vortexer for samples in 1.5, 2, 15 and 50 ml tubes. Good build quality. Easy to use. Adjustable speed. Two operating modes. Continuous or touch. We had issues with other vortexers like motor burnout, vortex head broken. But IKA Vortex genius is solid after 5+ years of operation. Solid build quality, It has some sort or rubber shoes which makes the vortexer stay in its place during operation."

Good reliable equipment from IKA.
Application Area:Agrochemical development
"The roller-mixer is regularly used, sometimes with quite heavy samples and is always fit-for-use. Some cheaper models only last quite a short time before breaking, but I have not seen this issue with IKA rollers."

The IKA ROCKER 3D digital is now used daily.
"Purchased ROCKER 3D digital to provide agitation to samples incubating with biomolecules overnight. Countdown/Timer allows good control of experiments. Wide speed range makes device suitable for a range of applications with a range of containers (Petri dishes, bottles, tubs)."

Should include programmable delayed start of shaking.
Application Area:incubation of plates at 37 degrees and bacterial liquid culture
"On the KS 4000 i control incubator shaker, the screws to fix the separating bars are weak points and the cover lid obviously does not withstand disinfection with Incidin, it cracks at the connecting glue joints and along curved edges. It sometimes happened that the incubator was shaking but the temperature setting had not been switched on, because there are two buttons that have to be pressed to activate both. Should include programmable delayed start of shaking. "

Wonderful for dilution
"The MTS 2/4 digital Microtiter shaker is wonderful for dilution. It shakes products that has saved my arms!!!! "
IKA offers the perfect lab shaker for mixing and shaking tasks. In addition to the tried and tested orbital shakers and horizontal shakers, the innovative incubator shaker KS 4000 is gaining popularity in laboratories. Its precise temperature control makes the incubator shaker a reliable asset in every lab. IKA products boast speeds of up to 3,000 revolutions per minute during continuous operations. A digital display, timer function, and controlling options via the lab software Labworldsoft ensure optimal working conditions. Integrated end point positioning allows for automated sampling. An extensive array of attachments enables the use of vessels in every shape and size. Functionality, safety, and longevity are the main goals in the development of IKA lab shakers.
