Starter kits for the Stuart equipment Dry Syn heating blocks system. Turn your Stuart hotplate into a heating mantle, the cleanest and safest way to heat round bottom flasks with this flexible modular system
The Stuart range of heating blocks have been developed in conjunction with DrySyn to provide the best possible solution for heating round bottom flasks. Combined with the Stuart range of undergrad hotplates and hotplate stirrers, the Stuart heating blocks provide the cleanest and safest method for synthesis for single of multiple reactions, whilst giving equal or better heating performance than silicon oil.
The modular nature of the Stuart heating block system gives you the greatest degree of flexibility, two sizes of base plates are available to accommodate up to three blocks each, SHB100BASE can take blocks for up to 100ml flasks while the SHB250BASE accepts blocks for up to 250ml flasks. Handy cost saving starter kits are also available, combining the base plate with a selection of blocks to get you up and running. All block sizes are also available separately in packs of three.
For larger volume reactions a third base plate is available, the SHB1000BASE accepts a single insert for up to 500ml and also includes heat resistant handles for safe and easy lifting.
The high quality anodised blocks offer excellent chemical and solvent resistance, and the low well has been proven to offer excellent temperature transfer without compromising your view of the reaction or risking cracking the glassware. The low well also ensures that the blocks are compatible with multi neck flasks.
The Stuart Undergrad hotplates are provided with an integrated fitment for a standard retort rod, this combined with the three position accessory clamp provides the most effective way of securely holding multiple flasks simultaneously. Accessory clamps are available in two sizes to offer the best fit for both base plate sizes.
Stuart heating blocks are compatible with the undergrad range of hotplates, and each block includes a probe hole to house the Stuart SCT1 temperature controller probe, allowing accurate control of the block temperature whilst on the Stuart hotplate.
What is BioCote?
BioCote anti-microbial coating additive is present on all Stuart brand equipment and offers anti-microbial action to help prevent cross-contamination.
This unique additive is applied during the manufacturing process and contains trace levels of active silver ions which provide an effective anti-microbial action, active against many strains of common bacteria and fungi, including Aspergillus niger, E.coli and Listeria mono.
This coating remains active for the entire product lifespan and can actually help in prolonging the life of products, where a build up of microbes may cause premature material degradation.
BioCote works by inhibiting bacteria in a number of ways including protein damage, cell membrane damage, oxidative damage and DNA interference. Ultimately, the bacteria are prevented from replicating. Without this, bacteria have been shown to die naturally within around 8 hours. BioCote works in a way different to antibiotics so it is currently effective against antibiotic resistant strains.
More recently, BioCote technology was proven effective against particular virus strains, with a reduction of 90% in 2 hours against feline coronavirus, strain Munich. Read more here.
