Laboratory incubator - what is it?

A laboratory incubator is a highly accurate device designed for incubation processes in clinical, industrial, technological, quality control and many other laboratories where maintaining a constant temperature is essential.

The microprocessor-based temperature control system of the hothouse allows to precisely maintain the set temperature level in the hothouse chamber regardless of external conditions. The laboratory incubator warmer can be equipped with double doors, which allows you to view the sample inside the incubator without disturbing the temperature inside. If the device has a double door, the inner door is made of safety tempered glass, which will allow visual inspection of the processes taking place inside the incubator without heat loss and without disturbing the incubation processes.

Laboratory incubators - types

Our offer includes laboratory incubators with natural air circulation, incubators with forced air circulation, incubators that have a cooling function and shaking incubators, i.e. chambers in which a constant temperature is maintained, and a movable platform with appropriately constructed handles allows constant shaking (or stirring) of vessels installed on it.

The laboratory incubators we offer provide a very high accuracy of the set temperature, a temperature that will be maintained with extreme accuracy and will provide optimal conditions for the assumed work, as well as reduce the influence of external factors when carrying out the assumed processes.
It is also worth mentioning that modern incubators allow extremely precise control and maintenance of the set temperature, as well as other factors affecting the processes, such as fan performance. The wide range of laboratory incubators available in our portfolio will enable you to find a device tailored to your individual needs and requirements. Warming machines with natural air circulation allow samples to be heated with a free flow of air in the heat chamber. Thanks to the use of natural air circulation, there is no fear that samples will dry out or there will be a transfer of pathogens from one pan to another, as the air circulation is extremely gentle.

Such laboratory incubators can be equipped with analog control, or microprocessor control. The tested, incubated material is subjected to a stable, homogeneous temperature rise, which protects against stress on the samples and the formation of local overheating of the material. Typically, natural air circulation incubators operate in temperature ranges from +30 °C to 70 °C or up to a maximum of 100 °C. They enable reliable incubation of microbial cultures and guarantee results that can be reproduced in any routine process in the laboratory, even in the situation of a large number of samples in a single batch or in the case of long-term operation of the device.

Available capacities of natural circulation incubators vary widely - from a dozen liters to several hundred liters. It should be borne in mind that the larger the capacity of the chamber of a natural air circulation warmer, the longer the time required for the temperature inside to equalize after starting the device or opening the door to inspect the contents of the interior. Some of the models have a single door, while they are partially glazed - they have a "window"- thanks to which, even despite the single door, it is possible to inspect the interior. More advanced devices have the ability to communicate via a USB port or RS232 port, as well as have the ability to remotely control or connect to the LIMS network of the laboratory. Advanced devices have a number of acoustic and visual alarms, as well as the ability to record the processes going on inside, so that the operation of a given hothouse complies with GMP and guarantees maximum safety. Wide possibilities of programming the devices, the ability to set a delayed start allows maximum flexibility in the use of devices. The accuracy of temperature stabilization of the most advanced devices can be up to +/- 0.1 ° C.

These devices have dual independent protection systems against uncontrolled temperature rise. Forced air circulation laboratory incubators are devices that reach the desired temperature inside the working chamber in a much shorter time than devices with natural convection. Forced air circulation of warmers makes the temperature distribution throughout the device even, forced convection makes the temperature maintained stable even in the corners of the chamber.

These incubators will be particularly suitable for performing conditioning and incubation of organisms that are sensitive to temperature and for which larger fluctuations are unfavorable. The temperature distribution is selected so as to achieve the best possible results of sample culture in the shortest possible time. The temperature stability of such devices is very high. Achievable temperatures inside the hothouse range from five degrees above ambient temperature to as high as 110°C. Forced circulation of the case, that regardless of the load of the device, precise and stable incubation conditions can be achieved inside the chamber. Also in this type of hothouse it is possible to order additional inner doors, which will be made of safety glass and will allow observation of the inside of the device without disturbing the incubation process. The device can have output ports, by means of which it can be incorporated, for example, into a laboratory LIMS system or rip the data stored in the device's memory. The devices can have extensive programming capabilities, setting delayed activation. Available capacities of forced-air heaters range from a dozen to as much as one thousand four hundred liters. Some of the models of forced-air heaters available on the market come as two-chamber devices, in which the temperature inside the chambers can be set separately.

Cooling laboratory warmers are designed for drying and annealing samples, allowing precise temperature changes from the heating phase to the cooling phase and vice versa. Some incubations require rapid temperature changes to be successful. These devices are usually equipped with several temperature-time cycles, allowing the devices to be programmed for monotonous operation without having to change them manually. The temperature range of such devices is from 4 °C to 100 °C, i.e. from the temperature of a typical refrigerator to that of a thermosetter. We even offer incubators that are capable of reaching a bottom temperature of -5 °C. Cooling usually occurs through a Peltier module, and the units are equipped with an adjustable fan to quickly reach the next temperature threshold. Incubators equipped with Peltier technology are energy efficient and set the cooling power very precisely. Thanks to forced air circulation, samples dry out during prolonged incubation.

Cooling incubators do not take up much space, as they usually do not need an additional refrigeration unit to work. Refrigerated hothouses use environmentally friendly coolant. The capacity of such devices ranges from a few tens of liters, to as much as one thousand four hundred liters. An incubator with shaking has the temperature of the inner chamber controlled by forced air circulation, and in addition, it can be programmed to shake at the appropriate frequency. In addition, its speed and operating time can be programmed. The device allows shaking and mixing of culture fluids, as well as the culture of bacteria, yeast, microorganisms and eukaryotic cells of plants, animals and insects. The incubator has a drive that can withstand even very heavy loads. This ensures uniform shaking even when the machine is running at high speed. Its operation is based on the orbital motion of the shaking platform. Many types of flasks can be placed on it by changing the type of handles on the platform. The glass lid on the incubator allows you to view the process without opening it and disturbing the temperature.
