These baths use metallic beads instead of water, delivering exceptional temperature uniformity of +/-1 degree without lengthy warm-up times. Beads create a dry bath, avoiding the contamination and maintenance of traditional water baths. They also improve energy efficiency over 50% of traditional water baths.
Beads hold a variety of containers securely in place without any float-away or ruined samples. You are no longer limited to water-tight containers, so you can incubate multi-well plates, petri dishes, and open-top samples at any angle.
Metallic beads have high thermal conductivity in the range of +/-180° C. Smooth, rounded surfaces measure 5 to 8 mm diameter and 1 to 2 mm high. Beads are moisture and gas impermeable, and are easy to keep clean without harmful germicides. These versatile beads can also be used in a container for freezers, ovens, and incubators.
