Laboratory Instruments: Incubator
By controlling conditions such as temperature, humidity, and CO2, laboratory incubators provide a regulated, contaminant-free environment for healthy, dependable work with cell and tissue cultures. For the growth and preservation of bacterial cultures, microbiological incubators are used. Dry bath incubators with single or dual blocks, biological oxygen demand (BOD) units ideal for insect or plant studies, shaking incubators, hybridization ovens, bioreactors, and a range of laboratory test chambers are among the many types and sizes available. With sizes ranging from small table-top units to room-scale units, finding the right size for your application is easy. Cell and tissue culture, biochemical and haematological research, pharmaceutical work, and food analysis all require laboratory incubators. One of the key objectives of incubator design is to reduce pollution. Manufacturers have high-temperature decontamination cycles, HEPA filtration, and antimicrobial copper components in the chamber to achieve this aim. Some incubators have inner glass doors that enable the contents to be viewed without disturbing the incubator's environment. The thermoelectricity theory governs the operation of the incubator. The incubator has a thermostat that creates a thermal gradient to keep the temperature steady. When a conductor is exposed to a thermal gradient, it produces voltage, which is known as the thermoelectric effect. The most basic incubators are insulated boxes with an adjustable heater that can reach temperatures of 60 to 65 degrees Celsius (140 to 150 degrees Fahrenheit), but some can go slightly higher (generally no more than 100 degrees Celsius). The most widely used temperature for bacteria, such as the commonly used E. coli, and mammalian cells is about 37 °C (99 °F), as these species grow well at this temperature.
