Magnetic Stirrers and Hotplates:
Long gone are the days of manually mixing solutions thanks to magnetic stirring units. As the name suggests, these units harness the power of magnetism for stirring purposes. A small magnetic bar coated in Teflon or glass, commonly referred to as a flea or stir bar, is submerged in the vessel containing the materials to be stirred.
Hot plates are a safer and more controllable alternative to Bunsen burners and other open flame apparatuses.

The Oxford Lab Products Magnetic Stirrers have a slim profile, compact design and no moving parts. This truly is a maintenance-free magnetic stirrer, available in single position and multiposition formats. The unique Pulse mode alternates the stirring direction every 30 seconds to enhance stirring intensity, for more vigorous stirring requirements such as the mixing of difficult to dissolve solids in a solution.
The Oxford Lab Products 5 and 10 Position Hotplate Stirrers offer precise and independent control of temperature, stirring speed and time for maximum versatility.
Questions to Consider when Choosing Your Magnetic Stirrers and Hotplates:
- Do you prefer digital or analog models?
- What type of material best fits your lab (ceramic, corrosion resistant stainless steel, or other for the top plate)?
- Do you only need to stir solutions or do you need to heat and stir solutions? If you will be heating solutions, do you want an integrated temperature probe?
- What size of vessels will you use?
- Do you need a single or multi-place unit?
- What volume of solution will you be producing at one time?
Please refer to each brand for the speed range, operating temperature range and other product specs.
