What to Look for When Choosing a Dry Bath
11 Sep 2018
When it comes to choosing equipment for your lab, you want to be certain you invest in products that will deliver the highest level of quality possible. It’s not always easy to find equipment that’s a good fit for your lab, but investing the extra time and energy upfront is well-worth it in the long run.
If you’re looking for a new dry bath for your lab, consider some of these important factors during your search.
- Sanitation: Contamination is a major concern in any laboratory setting, so it’s important to think about workplace sanitation when you’re choosing a new piece of equipment. The good news is dry baths tend to be much more resistant to contamination than water baths. However, you should still look for features that promote hygienic and safe operation. Components that can be easily removed for autoclaving, for example, can help you keep your workspace as clean as possible.
- Accessories: Depending on the specific applications you will use your dry bath for, you might need specialized accessories to fit the sample containers you are using. You should look for a dry bath that is compatible with the types of sample containers that are used in your lab.
- Insulation: One of the challenges of using dry baths is maintaining a consistent temperature and preventing heat loss. Look for dry baths that have insulative elements like lid seals and reinforced shells. These things help prevent temperature fluctuations that may affect your dry bath applications.
- Intuitive Control: Controls on your dry bath should be simple, straightforward and easy to use. Look for intuitive displays that will give your lab technicians as much control as possible over cycles and operation.
