Dry bath incubator are used to heat samples. The term dry bath intends to differentiate from other techniques of heating by means of a liquid medium. The laboratory dry bath is generally utilized to thaw, boil, incubate and warm specimen for utilizing in molecular biology, microbiology, assay preparation, tissue/cell culture, biochemistry, genetic studies, and proteomics. Also known as dry block heaters, these devices utilize a small amount of space and are extremely reliable. There are two major categories of dry baths including digital dry baths and analog dry baths. The digital dry baths are set apart from analog dry baths as they incorporate a microchip into the model. This enables the user to control the temperature of the bath by means of the digital interface whereas analog dry baths are not equipped with microchip technology. While the use of microprocessors and a digital display in the contemporary dry baths makes it easier to select and validate temperatures, however, it may not provide precision. For obtaining exact precision, it is advisable to use a temperate probe or external thermometer given that the digital display only shows the temperature within the block and not the sample being heated.

Temperature stability is another ordinary factor for heat blocks. The range of temperature is typically within 2 centigrade. The temperature inside the walls of the heat block is consistent. In general, dry baths have been utilized mostly for heating purpose. However, the latest series has been equipped with compressors which consider cooling a few degrees below ambient room temperature.

Dry bath Incubators serve a variety of functions in a scientific lab. Incubators generally maintain a constant temperature, however additional features are often built in. Many incubators also control humidity. Shaking incubators incorporate movement to mix cultures. Gas incubators regulate the internal gas composition. Some incubators have a means of circulating the air inside of them to ensure even distribution of temperatures. Many incubators built for laboratory use have a redundant power source, to ensure that power outages do not disrupt experiments. Incubators are made in a variety of sizes, from tabletop models, to warm rooms, which serve as incubators for large numbers of samples.


Dry bath incubator typically consists of a stainless-steel chamber, aluminum blocks, microprocessors, and a digital display. It also includes several customizable features that can provide an advantage over conventional dry baths. Among these characters is a removable transparent hinged lid, capacity to examine real temperature of the sample, a sophisticated microprocessor control, and a timed or consistent function.

Dry bath incubator offers rapid, constant heating and can handle a diverse range of tube sizes (0.2 to 50 ml). The strong microprocessor enables the device to provide exact temperature control (provides an expansive temperature range – from 5oC to 150oC) which removes the requirement of an external thermometer or timer. A compatible block is not included and is sold separately from dry baths

Dry bath incubator is used to heat samples in a variety of applications. Mostly dry bath incubators are made of an aluminum alloy which allows distribution of the heat in a uniform manner. Also known as dry block heaters, these devices are widely used in molecular biology and clinical and environmental laboratories.

Dry bath incubator fall into two main categories: digital dry baths and analog dry baths. While the digital units incorporate a microchip into the model which allows the temperature of the bath to be controlled through the digital interface, the analog instruments do not use microchip technology. Depending on the size of the block, the user can place a certain number of tubes in each block.

The simplest Dry bath incubators are insulated boxes with an adjustable heater, typically going up to 60 to 65 °C (140 to 150 °F), though some can go slightly higher (generally to no more than 100 °C). The most commonly used temperature both for bacteria such as the frequently used E. coli as well as for mammalian cells is approximately 37 °C (99 °F), as these organisms grow well under such conditions.

Dry Bath Incubator is a microprocessor-controlled product using advanced thermo electric technique. With this technique, more stable and accurate temperature control is achieved.

Dry Bath Incubator:

Dry bath incubator can easily be accommodated directly on the bench top where testing is performed. The capacity of these baths is estimated in blocks. According to the size of the block, a specific number of tubes can be placed inside each block. The heating blocks can also suit different tube sizes. The most widely recognized sizes for blocks are 1, 2 and 4 block models. Blocks of different measurements may be selected to suit diverse testing modalities. These blocks are fast and easy to change in the majority of units. Custom blocks are likewise accessible with numerous units, to meet particular requirements for vessel shape or size. Blocks are produced using high-grade supplies, often aluminum, and specifically machined for optimal heat exchange.
