Staufen/Frankfurt, June 18, 2012 – With almost 50 innovations, including two world premieres, laboratory system specialist IKA presents the next generation of laboratory equipment at Achema 2012. Engineers and technical specialists have been working for almost five years on new developments and improvements to existing equipment. At the same time, the company, based in Staufen im Breisgau and founded over 100 years ago, has added new products to its range.
 
Two new world firsts are the highly automated, compact C1 Calorimeter and the TUBE MILL control, a batch mill with single-use milling vessels. For the first time, it enables serial testing to be carried out under reproducible conditions.
 
In the case of magnetic stirrers, features such as the patented weighing function and the patented viscosity display are on show for the first time. Interfaces forsoftware downloads via a PC have also been incorporated.
 
Stirrers are now available in a wide range of models to meet even the most specialized requirements. Key features are wireless control, viscosity display, integrated temperature measurement and a software download option (firmware).
 
Also on display are the new RV8 Evaporator, new dispersers, a new vacuum pump and a new centrifuge.
 
Completely new to the IKA range are ergonomically and technically advanced pipettes and 16 different thermostats.
