MATRIX Orbital Delta Plus Thermoshaker Receives German Design Award
20 Jan 2021
IKA has been awarded the prestigious German Design Award 2021 for its MATRIX Orbital Delta Plus, which sits on a sturdy mount, even on a small setup area thanks to its diecast housing.
The thermomixer’s clear shape, smooth surface and inventive layout are designed to make it easy to handle, even when changing attachments. A special attachment fixing system improves temperature transfer while the outer plastic casing ensures the users don’t burn their fingers.
The MATRIX Orbital Delta Plus and MATRIX Delta Plus were launched in 2020, completing the IKA MATRIX product portfolio. Both devices feature an added cooling function and are designed to improve optimal mixing of small and very small volumes.
The MATRIX Delta Plus cools samples to -30°C and heats them up to 110°C, while the MATRIX Orbital Delta Plus can mix, heat and cool. Simultaneous mixing and temperature control is designed to provide a better mix result and shorter reaction time. Up to 3,000 rpm and 3 mm shaking stroke contribute to controlled, rapid and even mixing of the most challenging samples.
Both devices can carry out reproducible and high quality processing volumes at the milliliter scale. Attachments are detected automatically. The thermoshakers are part of the user-friendly IKA product portfolio in the Life Sciences category. They feature the familiar and easy-to-use IKA menu guidance system.
