Radleys has announced the introduction of the new generation Metz Heater Shaker™ - designed to fulfil the heating/agitation needs of scientists in the fields of chemical synthesis, combinatorial chemistry, process development and optimization.

Shaking can be preferable to stirring in applications including parallel organic synthesis, solid phase chemistries, sample concentration and incubations as it has less physical effect on the contents.

Offering heating and shaking in a single compact unit the Metz Heater Shaker fits onto any bench or into any fumehood. Reactions or incubations are performed in a removable reaction block that fits into the heated platform which rotates in a circular orbit for mixing of the reactants.

The Metz Heater Shaker is accommodating reaction blocks that accept different size tubes or multiple micro titre plates. Reaction blocks can also be customized to accept vessels for your specific application.

Operating the Metz Heater Shaker as a stand-alone unit is very simple. Using a back-lit Touch Control front panel, setting the temperature (ambient +5°C to 150°C) and agitation speeds (from 100 to 600rpm) just takes moments. Alternatively for unattended operation, heating and shaking cycles can be controlled by externally as part of an automated system through the RS232/RS485 ports.

Agitation begins with a soft-start, a ramping feature that allows slow build up (from 0-59 minutes) to the set speed minimizing vessel splashing and sample damage. A ramp facility is also available for controlled heating. A thermal cut-off switch eliminates the possibility of runaway conditions. A safety interlock facility ensures operator safety as agitation is stopped if the block door is opened.
