Clinical settings like laboratories use dry bath incubators for diverse heating applications. The two main types of dry baths include digital and analog models. While digital units incorporate a microchip into the model which allows the temperature of the bath to be controlled through the digital interface, analog models do not use microchip technology. Boekel Scientific offers a wide variety of Dry Bath Incubators that are designed to accommodate an assortment of interchangeable Heating Block Modules. These incubators are ideal for different applications such as restriction digests, in situ hybridization, denaturing DNA, melting agar, hot start PCR, total phosphorus and total nitrogen testing, blood testing, arming reagents and samples, incubation of LAL tubes and more.
Available in one, two or four block capacity models, these reliable, economical and convenient incubators are complemented by an extensive offering of Block Modules, which is ideal for virtually every conceivable application.
Reliable models of Dry Bath Incubators include:
- 1-BLOCK, 115V
- 2-BLOCK, 115V
- 4-BLOCK, 115V
Boekel Analog Dry Bath Incubators are designed to be used with standard aluminum dry blocks of varying configurations for heating test tubes, microtubes and other small vessels. They can also accept blocks which hold a wide variety of microplates.
These analog units feature:
- Amber Pilot Light
- Dynamic temperature range
- Excellent value
- Supplied with block extractor rod
- PID Microprocessor controlled temperature selection
- Large LED Display
- “Set it and forget it” convenience
It also accommodates a temperature controller with three buttons. When the button on the left is depressed, it will display the “Target Temperature”. When the left button is depressed simultaneously with the middle button, “Target Temperature” value is lowered. When the left button is depressed simultaneously with the button on the right, the “Target Temperature” is increased. When all buttons are released, actual block temperature is displayed.
The manufacturer recommends that the unit should be placed in a clear, draft-free environment and when used to heat microscope slides or 96-well plates, some form of well cover or lid (non-flammable) should be used. Reliable lab equipment suppliers offer this incubator with manufacturer’s warranty.
