The Lab Armor® Bead Bath’s eco-friendly, state-of-the-art design takes full advantage of the robust properties of Lab Armor Beads. It delivers exceptional temperature uniformity and gets up and running faster. So you can do things with this bath that you can’t do with your old water bath. You aren’t limited to water-tight containers, so you can safely incubate multi-well plates, petri dishes, and open-top samples at any angle.
Lab Armor® Beads are eco-friendly and low-maintenance metallic beads that replace water in existing water baths, aluminum blocks in dry baths and even ice in ice buckets. The innovative Lab Armor Beads can also be used in containers placed in ovens and incubators to replace sample racks. Compatible with a broad temperature range from -80°C to 180°C.
- Save Time & Money - Using Beads makes lab experiments easy. No more hassles with emptying, cleaning, and refilling water baths. The bath always stays on, so you don’t have to plan around warm-up times. Use Beads in ice buckets and save trips to the ice machine. And no more floating samples.
- Stays Clean - Unlike water baths and ice machines that promote harmful microbial growth, Beads keep things dry and unfriendly to microbes. So there is less to clean and less to worry about. The result is more successful experiments and less laboratory downtime
- Stay Organized - Beads hold things in place without accessories. So no more accidents from float away vessels. In fact, Beads aren’t limited to capped, watertight vessels. Imagine using petri dishes and 96-well plates right in a Bead Bath. No water. No problem.
- Eco-friendly - Beads can transform a water bath into a greener instrument. Beads don’t require the use of harmful germicides to keep clean, they use less electricity because the Beads don’t evaporate, and the Beads are completely recyclable.
