We’ve carried Laboratory Baths, both Dry and Water for quote some time now. Laboratory Baths are used to bring samples up to a certain temperature by immersing them in a controlled temperature bath of water. Baths are either ‘Water’ where the samples are immersed directly into the water (in test tubes or other containers, mind you) or ‘dry’ where the samples are in heated blocks. Laboratory Baths are much more controlled than using other methods such as boiling water or a hot plate. The temperature is much more controlled and allows for proper reactions or growth of the samples.
Laboratory Baths can be a bit costly, however. A 4L model can run over $700. For this you do get an excellent instrument with precision temperature controls & accuracy (0.1 C), timer and in-lab calibration. So don’t misunderstand us – that is an excellent instrument. However, this still might be a bit to pricey for some labs or schools that do not require such precision instruments. For them we have the affordable Water Water Baths
These Water Baths feature intelligent temperature controller with PID program, digital tube display, over-temperature protection, stainless steel inner container and roof and anti-corrosion exterior , and +/- 1 C sensitivity.
These Baths are excellent for educational facilities, or for start-up labs on a budget.
