A complete kit including the hotplate stirrer, temperature controller, probe holder and retort rod.
Choose from the chemically resistant ceramic hotplate stirrer or the more robust aluminium/silicon alloy hotplate stirrer.
By using the SCT1 temperature controller in conjunction with the hotplate stirrer you can ensure accurate temperature control of your sample up to a maximum of 200Â°C.
The hotplate stirrer automatically detects when the SCT1 temperature controller is plugged in and subsequently transfers the control of temperature to the SCT1 unit.
The unit feeds back the actual temperature of your sample and adjusts the heating accordingly. This achieves accurate temperature control to within 1Â°C resolution and Â±0.5Â°C accuracy.
The kits include;
Either UC152 ceramic top hotplate stirrer OR US152 aluminium / silicon alloy hotplate stirrer
SCT1 temperature controller unit with stainless steel probe
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.
