A laboratory incubator is an instrument that allows carrying out a large number of experimental processes inside, such as microbiological and cell cultures thanks to its ability to achieve the optimal temperature and humidity for it, as well as carbon dioxide and oxygen levels. In other words, this equipment allows to store these crops in an ideal environment, facilitating the proper development of them thanks to the control of variables such as temperature, pressure and air circulation.

A laboratory incubator usually has a thermostat-controlled electrical resistance system or microprocessed controls, and has two basic operating modes: natural convection, where airflow is generated by a temperature difference or forced convection, in which external equipment such as a fan or cooling pump is used to create an air stream.

Types of incubators a Laboratory may need

Constant temperature Incubator

  • Precision LCD microcomputer intelligent PID control system, with temperature control, timing and over-temperature alarm, with RS485 computer interface.
  • With standard international brands cooling fan, maintenance – free, durability. Perfect combination of duct design to ensure temperature uniformity for the working chamber.
