Historically, hot plates were powered by electricity or steam. A hot plate is typically used in a confined space as replacement option for an oven range or cooktop stove. In the world of chemistry, hot plates have become popular as heating agents because of their small size and efficiency. Generally speaking, hot plates are used to transfer heat in places, or under circumstances, where using a larger heating appliance would not be practical, or possible.

In the last couple of years, hot plate manufacturers have experimented with magnetic technology in the making of their hot plates. One of the leading companies in the chemistry hotplate world, IKA, recently released the IKA IKAMAG RCT Basic Aluminum Magnetic Hotplate Stirrer, which features magnetic heating technology.

This magnetic hotplate stirrer was designed to help synthesize mixtures up to 180 degrees Celsius. This is helpful for a wide range of laboratory substances, including: pharmaceuticals, dyes, plastics, perfumes and colognes, curd soaps, various natural materials, catalysts, different types of plastics, and pesticides, like cyclopentadiene.

Additionally, the device is useful for the synthesis of benzoic acid, evaporating solid materials, crystallizing procedures, and distillations. For more specialized tasks, the IKA Magnetic Hotplate stirrer is also great for synthesizing biodiesel products and generating Grignard reactions.

Synthesis Package 2

IKA’s patented Synthesis Package 2 allows for the optimization of heat transfer up to 180 degrees Celsius. Just like more conventional hot plates, the magnetic construction of the IKA enables the scientist to transfer the heat directly onto the laboratory flask.

Another benefit of magnetic hotplates is that they mix materials uniformly. The IKA accomplishes this by not allowing interference near the magnetic plate because of the aluminum blocks that the company used to construct the hotplate. IKA also coated the IKAMAG in PTFE, which prevents burning, and, as a consequence, creates a safer device that works well as a training tool for inexperienced chemists.


The IKA IKAMAG RCT Basic Aluminum Magnetic Hotplate Stirrer has a product number of 8039701. IKA sells different sizes of reaction blocks. These different-sized blocks are needed for conducting different types of chemistry. IKA has hit its mark. This, like the rest of their product line, is quality waiting to be discovered.

The Brymill Cry-AcTracker Liquid Nitrogen System w/Digital Temp.Sensor is manufactured by Brymill Cryogenic Systems, a leader in cryogenics products and services. The B-900 is special because it uses a digital temperature sensor to measure the temperature of skin when spraying nitrogen for cryogenics purposes. This nitrogen is delivered via Brymill’s patented Cry-Ac system.

The medical device also uses an infrared light sensor to more effectively track the freezing of the skin. The sensor works by using a colored–lights system to indicate how quickly skin temperature is decreasing, as well as when the desired freeze temperature has been reached.

What sets the B-900 apart, though, is that the aforementioned infrared sensor consistently allows the user to reach their desired skin temperature and freeze times, meaning companies can work more quickly and efficiently while freezing. Additionally, the combination of the sensor and the Cry-Ac spray system improves the accuracy of cryogenic procedures, which saves the company and client considerable sums of money.

Packaging and Warranty

Along with the Cry-AcTracker Liquid Nitrogen System, Brymill sends 2 double-AA batteries, a rugged aluminum carry case, apertures, needle spray, an operators manual, and an instructional DVD.

The cryogenics equipment has a six month limited warranty. The warranty does not cover abuse, neglect, or mishandling of the Cry-Ac.

Other Accessories

Besides the accessories mentioned above, Brymill sells a number of cryogenics-related products. These include: the liquid nitrogen storage tanks, replacement filters, spray extensions, lock adapters, and temperature-resistant gloves.

These temperature-resistant gloves are called the Tempshield Cryo-Gloves for Cryogenic Protection. The gloves, which are constructed of state-of-the-art thermal fabrics, have a flexible, multilayer design that allows cryogenics professionals a free range of motion during procedures. Additionally, the Tempshield gloves are resistant to water, are extremely lightweight, and have a breathable interior.

As with any Brymill products, the Cry-AcTracker is a superior piece of equipment.

When the need to clean sensitive or fragile objects arises there is no better choice than a professional ultrasonic cleaner. Traditional methods use abrasive scrubbing or damaging chemicals. This can harm the surface you are attempting to clean, especially if you’re working with delicate items. Cleaners such as the Branson M1800 0.5 Gal. Benchtop Ultrasonic Cleaner w/60 Minute Mechanical Timer, utilize a cleaning solution agitated by ultrasonic frequencies. By gently vibrating particulate matter off of objects, they are left with an unparalleled clean surface. In many cases an ultrasonic cleaner is the only way to reach deposits that may be hidden in deep grooves or pits like those found in jewelry.

Ultrasonic cleaners are not only used by jewelers. Many other fields have recognized their many benefits. Optics manufacturers use cleaners like Branson’s M1800 series to ensure their lenses are spotless. This is very important as even the smallest blemish can make a huge impact. Dentists and surgeons use ultrasonic waves to cleanse their precision instruments. Many other items are also cleaned by ultrasonic cleaners such as coins, fountain pens, firearms, musical instruments and more. Some professional cleaners have additional options that help them perform even better.

Branson's CPX-952-116R utilizes sweeping frequencies eliminating standing waves. Standing waves are a lot like playing jump rope with a couple of friends. The person in the middle moves a great deal while those on the end stand pretty still. By sweeping frequencies these null points move, ensuring everything is meticulously cleaned. This particular model uses frequencies at about 40KHz. The average person can only hear frequencies up to 20 KHz, putting the CPX-952-116R well beyond the human hearing limit. This allows for much quieter operation while it powerfully cleans items.

The Branson M1800 0.5 Gal. Benchtop Ultrasonic Cleaner w/60 Minute Mechanical Timer also shows thorough thought in its design, as is evident by their control location. By elevating the controls, splash-off from depositing items does not accumulate on the control surfaces. Intricacies in design such as this are indications of well-engineered and professional equipment. Equipment that is likely to last and outperform the competition for years to come.

Centrifuges are necessary for a variety of professionals and are commonly used in laboratories, medical facilities and other industries to separate suspended material from the mediums that they are mixed with. The way that centrifuges do this is by spinning the tubes at a high rate of speed around a fixed, central point. This generates a centrifugal force that forces the denser material in the tubes against the walls of the tubes, separating it from the solution. An example of a practical usage of these is when they are used to separate plasma from blood samples.

The Ample Scientific Champion Variable Speed Digital Large Capacity Centrifuge w/Swing Rotor 5000 RPM L-50 is a centrifuge that is multi-function and can be used for test tubes with capacities from 500 ml to 7 ml. Its swing rotor has space enough for four test tubes, but there are four more swing rotors that are optional for this centrifuge. It also features a ventilation system that is a vortex and keeps the centrifuge chamber cool so that it protects the samples.

This particular centrifuge also features an LED display that is large and easy to read. It shows everything from the speed, time left, rotor installed, open and close status of the lid and "in operation" or "not in operation" status of the centrifuge. This centrifuge is relatively quiet when it’s in use. It operates quieter than 70dB when it is at its maximum speed setting. The lid on the centrifuge is programmed to automatically unlock when the rotor comes to a complete stop, and it’s safe to open the lid. The safety lock feature on the machine prevents it from being opened while it’s in operation. It also features a timer that can be set for up to 120 minutes.

It is important for a centrifuge to have a large suction as well, which this one does to offer stability and smoothness throughout its operation. Additionally, it features a self-protection mechanism that prevents it from over-heating. This centrifuge is perfect for separating the materials within a test tube so that they can be analyzed and is an ideal solution for any laboratory in need of a centrifuge.
