Magnetic stirrers are commonly used in laboratories and consist of a rotating magnet or a stationary electromagnet, that creates a swirling magnetic field. Commonly used in chemistry and biology, magnetic stirrers are quiet, long-serving and efficient. One of the main benefits of a magnetic stirrer is the rapid pace of stirring, created by the rotating magnet (or several magnets).
Interlab offers a wide variety of magnetic stirrers and distributes the production of suppliers, such as 2mag, Biosan, or IKA.
Before purchasing a magnetic stirrer, you should consider several details, such as the heat output and range, regulating temperature, capacity, speed, and other factors. Stirring bars can be of various shapes and sizes – round, ball-shaped, oval, rectangular, or other variations. The right shape for you will depend on your requirements, therefore it is important to consider the aspects below:
- The volume of the fluid
- The vessel shape and opening size
- Internal drive magnet size
- Stir bar material construction
