All of the built-in features on Bead Bath were designed from the ground up to take advantage of Lab Armor Beads and advanced capabilities of Bead Bath. And they deliver exceptional temperature uniformity up to 80ºC. So you can do things with this bath that you can’t do with your typical bead-filled water bath. 

With the Bead Bath design, temperatures are consistent and uniform everywhere in the bath. Thermal uniformity is an amazing +/-1.0 at 37ºC. Beads can transform a water bath into a smarter instrument that uses less electricity. As water evaporates  in a water bath it cools. Due to this evaporative-cooling effect, the bath must heat more frequently, which increases energy consumption. A bead bath uses over 4X less energy when set to 65 ºC and over 2X less energy at 37 ºC. 

A Bead Bath gets up and running faster and you never need to turn it off. There is nothing to evaporate. It’s just like a trusty always-on incubator. Unlike a standard bead-filled water bath, a Bead Bath allows you to achieve a new set temperature quickly, without long warm-up delays, so you can make quick adjustments. 

Contaminated samples and reagents can happen with water bath, which results in distorted data and unpredictable outcomes. A Bead Bath reduces the risk of contamination, achieve reproducible results and allows for greater confidence in the equipment as Lab Armor has worked hard to eliminate the need for many of the germicides that are a common part of water bath maintenance. Germicides can accumulate in the water table from disposal during regular maintenance. Bead Baths are dry and periodic decontamination with a biodegadable, earth-friendly disinfectant, such as 70% EtOH is usually all that is required to keep most unwanted microbes away.

Beads are formed from solid recyclable metal. The material is very desirable to recyclers, which means the raw material used in Lab Armor® Beads can be reused in other products. Unlike water baths that require racks, floats, and bottleneck weights, Bead Bath naturally holds things in place without acessories, so no more floating accidents.
