The UTTD Tube Drive Control is a unique and universal dispersing, stirring, homogenizing and grinding system that features hermetically sealable, chemically-resistant disposable sample tubes. This disperser system eliminates cross-contamination risk in addition to providing advanced safety from samples containing infectious and/or toxic substances. The sample containers (tubes) are easily attached to the drive unit. Once the tube is attached to the drive, simply set the desired speed and duration and then start the unit. An acoustic signal will indicate when the unit has completed sample dispersing, stirring, homogenizing and/or grinding.

Safe and convenient: the new UTTD control with hermetically sealable, single-use sample vessels is now suitable for use in even more applications.

Unique and patented: the IKA ULTRA-TURRAX Tube Drive system with hermetically sealable, chemicall-resistant sample vessels (tubes). The drive system with its universal, single-use tubes is particularly suitable for processing infectious, toxic and high-odor sample materials. Tests can be reproduced at any time with no risk of cross contamination between individual samples.

Three different types of sample preparation tube are available in 20 mL and 50 mL sizes, guaranteeing that there is always the right tube for the job:

Stirring Tube (ST): mixing/dissolving with energy input to sample variable from low to very high

Dispersing Tube (DT): Homogenizing in a standardized environment

Ball Mill Tube (BMT): Homogenizing, milling, mixing and dissolving with aid of steel, glass or ceramic balls

New with the \"control\" model: reverse rotation and turbo functions for optimized mixing and milling effect. A USB interface is provide to allow tests to be documented and controlled using a PC. A simple menu system and multilingual LED display ensure that the device is easy to operate, with all test parameters displayed digitally.

Our applications database already contains over 100 applications to help you significantly increase reproducibility, accuracy and efficiency in the laboratory.
