Independent stirring, measured and controlled
AutoMATEs can be fitted with bottom (magnetic) stirring and / or overhead stirring for more viscous samples.
Traditional strirring with magnetic bars (fleas) is possible in AutoMATEs, especially when small vessels or vials are used. The larger "suspended" stirrers are ideal for slurries, typically in vessels above 75ml due to the stronger magnets and motors in AutoMATEs compared to PolyBLOCKs.
Suspended mechanical stirring
Good mixing of liquids and suspensions is possible using "suspended" stirrers, especially with larger vessels.
This can be provided instead of, or in addition to, bottom stirring.
