Choice of top plate:
Stylish and economical general purpose hotplate designed with safety as well as performance in mind. The compact shape takes up less bench space and makes storage easier. The hotplate has microprocessor control and an innovative LED based true °C temperature setting system rather than simply a 1 to 10 arbitrary scale. The unit can also be used in conjunction with the SCT1 digital temperature controller to accurately control sample temperature rather than plate temperature.
The "Hot" warning light will flash whenever the plate temperature is above 50°C even when the hotplate is turned off and unplugged from the mains.
Model UC150 has a glass ceramic top which has excellent chemical resistance. The surface is easy to clean and allows high plate temperatures for faster heating.
Model US150 has a robust aluminium/silicon alloy top plate for excellent heat transmission. The top plate has a thin ceramic coating for added chemical resistance. A 700W element gives rapid heating and ensures even temperature distribution across the whole surface of the plate.
Both models have an integral fitting for a retort rod and the bottom is shaped to allow a retort base to slide underneath the unit if required so saving further bench space.

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.
