Used in Dr. Lin Tsai’s chemistry laboratory in support of the Stadtmans. From "Corning LM-2," Corning Laboratory Products, 1968: "The new versatile CORNING LM-2 features a vertical mixing action and variety of accessories which permit the researcher to: (1) obtain excellent random mixing of solution volumes from micro sample size to 2 liters; (2) stir or mix without a vortex, thus preventing interference with experiments due to air entrainment; (3) mix in closed or sealed systems without the problems of rotating seals or heat buildup; (4) mix fragile substances such as cells without damage; or (5) construct custom paddles to meet unusual stirring requirements. "
Dr. Lin Tsai (1922-2003) was born in Hong Kong, coming to the United States for his Master’s and Ph.D. in Organic Chemistry. He became a naturalized citizen in 1962. He came to the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute in 1959, where he worked in the Laboratory of Biochemistry with Earl and Thressa Stadtman. His research focus was the stereochemical course of enzymatic reactions and the structures and syntheses of organic compounds. His most important work centered on nicotinic acid metabolism and riboflavin degradation.
