Bibby Scientific Ltd announced today that Stuart®, a leading UK manufacturer of laboratory benchtop equipment, has enhanced its Tube Roller range to include valuable new features for sample mixing, incorporating detachable roller tubes and removable side panels. These technology developments are now available on all of Stuart’s digital and analogue Tube Rollers, bringing greater application versatility as well as peace of mind to lab scientists in education, life science and healthcare.
Stuart’s detachable roller tubes are designed so that users can customise the roller bed in order to fit larger vessels as and when required. The motor driven rollers can be easily removed or inserted to accommodate different sized sample tubes and media bottles. This feature also makes it easier to clean the instrument in case of accidental spillages.
Removable side panels have been added as an optional new safety feature to ensure that sample tubes are mixed evenly and are kept securely on the instrument during mixing. Stuart’s Tube Rollers are ideal for mixing blood samples, viscous substances and liquid-solid suspensions of varying volumes.
“Scientists worldwide need reliable benchtop instruments that will perform consistently, day after day, and Stuart aims to meet these requirements,” said Katy Bridge, Assistant Product Manager at Bibby Scientific. “Our latest Tube Roller enhancements will enable researchers to use their trusted Stuart instruments for a wider range of functions, bringing high quality performance and great value to more laboratories.”
The detachable roller tubes and removable side panels are available on the Stuart SRT6, SRT9, SRT6D and SRT9D Tube Rollers and they come with BioCote antimicrobial protection, which is standard for all Stuart products.
