The Peltier-cooled MMM Friocell P Cooled Incubator Is Here! This eco-friendly, cooled laboratory incubator replaces the use of traditional refrigerant gases with Peltier cooling technology. This technology consumes less energy and produces less waste, reducing your lab’s carbon footprint. An additional advantage of Peltier cooling is that it is silent and does not require any moving parts, making it a good choice for laboratory fridges where noise and vibration can interfere with experiments. The MMM Friocell P also has the advantage of being more compact and portable as they do not require large refrigeration units, making them ideal for use in small laboratory spaces.
The purpose of a cooled laboratory incubator is to provide a controlled environment for culturing microorganisms or other processes that require precise control of environmental factors. This can include temperature, humidity, and, in some cases, gas levels. Incubators are an essential part of the laboratory for the culture of microorganisms, quality testing in pharmaceutical or cosmetic industries, and testing in food and veterinary manufacturing.
Choosing the best-cooled incubator for your lab is a crucial step in ensuring the success of your experiments and the preservation of your samples. There are a few important factors to consider when selecting a cooled incubator for your laboratory.
- Temperature Range: The temperature range of an incubator is the first and foremost factor to consider. The temperature range should be suitable for the type of samples you’ll be incubating and should meet the requirements of the specific protocols you’ll be using.
- Capacity: Consider the size of your lab and the amount of samples you’ll be incubating. There are a variety of sizes available, from compact bench-top cooled incubators to large walk-in models. Depending on size, capacity can range from a few samples to several hundred.
- Temperature Uniformity: It’s essential that the temperature within the incubator remains stable and uniform to ensure consistent results. The temperature should be accurately controlled and maintained, even under changing conditions such as opening the door or adding samples. An incubator with precise temperature control and a uniform temperature distribution throughout the chamber is essential.
- Sterilization and Containment: If you’ll be incubating biological samples, it’s crucial to choose an incubator that can provide a sterile environment. Some incubators offer features such as UV lights or steam sterilization to maintain the sterility of the chamber.
- Record Keeping: Incubators with monitoring and record-keeping capabilities can be incredibly helpful. Some incubators have data logging systems that can be used to track the temperature and conditions inside the chamber over time.
- Energy Efficiency: In times of rising energy costs, reducing the running costs with energy efficient models is an important factor to consider when choosing your cooled incubator.Top of Form
