IKA - Magic LAB

The magic LAB® is a unique and multi-functional small-scale laboratory machine. It is designed for mixing, dispersing, wet milling and incorporation of powders into liquids. The magic LAB® is most frequently used for the development of new products or for optimizing of existing process techniques, particularly in the chemical, cosmetic, pharmaceutical and food industries. It is an ideal machine for continuous, circulating and batch processing with interchangeable modules. Many work parameters of the magic LAB® are identical to those of the IKA 2000 inline production machines: UTL, DR, CMS, MHD, MK and MKO. Therefore, the magic LAB® ensures a reliable scale-up by offering the possibility to work with the same method from formulation development to mass production. The basic in-line machine is equipped with the single-stage dispersing module ULTRA-TURRAX® UTL. It is best suited for batch applications and can be adapted for the manufacturing of dispersions from coarse to fine. Compared to a conventional stirrer, the mixing time is reduced by up to 50%. Depending on the application, the basic unit can be modified quickly with different working modules.

Key features

  • Flexibility and ease of use: one machine suits for many applications and variety of processes
  • Optimum mixing , dispersing and wet milling results due to rotor tip speed up to 40 m/s and therefore high energy input into the working area
  • Simple heating or cooling of all modules
  • Together with inline machines of 2000 series enables seamless transition of processes from laboratory to production while retaining the product quality
  • Easy and quick exchange of the modules as well as conversion to a complete working plant
  • User-friendly operation via the magic LAB® controller
  • Practical transport and storage packaging
IKAIKA is where people turn visions into reality. When the corporate history of IKA began in 1910, China had not yet become a People's Republic and the word "globalization" had not been invented yet. Today, the IKA group has over 900 employees at 10 locations on four continents and is proud to serve customers such as BASF, Bayer or Procter&Gamble. We are the leader in the world market in most of the product groups and a leading example for development and growth. Or as our new slogan expresses it: „IKA-Designed to work perfectly“.
