The shielded stirrer is an essential accessory for certain kit reconstitutions requiring stirring time when radiolabelling with 99mTc for example. It fits perfectly into Easypharma Compact® and 4R Low and Medium Energy hot cells while providing additional radiation protection with its 6 mm lead shield around the vial.
Two models of vial bottle adapters (26 and 31 mm diameter) are supplied with the product to fit several types of bottles of various capacities.
With a vortex type circular vibration movement, controlled by a speed control knob, the speed can be varied over a very wide range from 100 to 2,500 revolutions per minute with a 230 V power supply. This shielded stirrer is very simple to use, and ready to use after simply pressing the power button. To assist the user, a scale with reference points is provided to select the recommended rotation setpoint.
With the slide switch, the user can change the operating mode at any time from “Continuous” to “Automatic”, where the stirring stops as soon as the vial is removed from the system for enhanced safety.
