As of 1st Jan 2014 we've been running one of our V3 Digital Plates 24/7 round-the-clock to see how it fares the test of time and look for any weaknesses in our stirplates that we can improve for future versions.
The picture below shows our stirplate currently under test. It's spinning about 2.5 liters of orange coloured liquid at maximum speed. The flask is capped with foil to reduce evaporation and the whole setup is enclosed in a wooden box with a small fluorescent lamp to keep it lit up at night.
Image is set to update every 30 seconds. If it doesn't change, try refreshing the page.
As you can see we've included a clock in the background to keep things interesting. If you ever notice that the time is way wrong (remember we're in Australia), or it's not updating it could be that we're experiencing a blackout or our internet is down. Even so, feel free to let us know via our Contact Us form.
