Torrey Pines Scientific has introduced larger EchoTherm vibration-free benchtop chilling incubators that are suitable for protein crystallography and other life science laboratory uses.
The incubators are 100-L capacity and are Peltier-based for heating and chilling. The incubators have no compressors or CFCs. They come in two models—the IN55 is fully programmable and the IN50 is simple digital—and are settable from 4 C to 70 C. They feature PID temperature control to +/- 0.1 C, digital display to 0.1 C, and accuracy to +/- 0.2 C.
The units also feature a RS232 I/O port for remote control and data collection; digital timer in hours, minutes, and seconds with user-settable auto-off; temperature ramping on programmable models, and audible alarms.
