Torrey Pines Scientific has launched its new EchoTherm stackable/programmable vibration-free chilling incubators for protein crystallography and other life science uses.
The incubators have a 27 litre capacity and are Peltier-based for heating and chilling. They have no compressors or CFCs and are vibration-free, making them ideal for protein crystallisations. Other applications include enzyme reactions and deactivations, hybridisations, ligations, storing oocytes, and general laboratory incubations. Three units may be stacked using two stacker accessories.
The IN35 is a fully programmable unit that can store three programs in memory and features precise temperature ramping, both up and down. Temperatures are settable from 4ºC to 70ºC controllable to ± 0.1°C, and accuracy to ±0.2ºC.
