Choice of top plate: Robust stainless steel or Chemically resistant ceramic
Powerful magnets and motor give stirring speeds up to 2000rpm and is capable of mixing large volumes (up to 15 litres *). The compact shape takes up less bench space and makes storage easier.
Model UC151 has a glass ceramic top which has excellent chemical resistance. The surface is also very easy to clean. The white surface ensures good visibility of colour changed, during titrations for example.
Model US151 has a robust stainless steel top plate that does not produce eddy currents like aluminium and so ensures a very powerful coupling and stirring action.
Both models have an integral fitting for a retort rod and are supplied with 2 x 25mm PTFE coated stir bars. 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.
