Lab Armor Waterless Baths and Beads

  • Lab Armor beads are eco-friendly and low-maintenance metallic beads that replace water in existing water baths, aluminum blocks in dry baths and ice in ice buckets. Beads can also be used in containers placed in ovens and incubators to replace sample racks.
  • No more hassles with emptying, cleaning and refilling water baths.
  • Exceptional temperature uniformity. Thermal uniformity (at 37ºC): ±1.0ºC.
  • Temperature range: ambient + 5 to 80ºC.
  • Beads keep things dry and unfriendly to microbes.
  • Beads do not require the use of harmful germicides to keep clean, use less electricity because they don’t evaporate, and are completely recyclable.
  • Thermally heats and cools like water in any standard water bath or heat block.
  • Beads can be used in most general purpose water baths and dry baths with exposed or recessed heating elements that are centrally located. Compatible with standard constant temperature water baths; tub with 4-8 inches depth is best.
  • Beads are not recommended for use in the following equipment: shaking baths, circulating baths, baths with float switches, shallow baths < 5” or 13cm or deep baths > 8” or 20cm.
  • The bath always stays on, so you don’t have to plan around warm-up times.
  • Accepts and supports any size and shape vessel.
  • Not 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 easy to keep clean with a spray application of 70% ethanol every few weeks. Avoid using strong acids, bases, including bleach solutions and other strong corrosive detergents. Do not autoclave beads.
  • Size: 5 to 8 mm diameter, 1 to 2 mm height.
  • Moisture and gas impermeable.
  • High thermal conductivity.
  • Smooth, rounded surface.
  • Working temperature range is -80 to 180ºC.
  • Non-toxic, non-vaporizing material.
  • Improves energy efficiency of standard water baths by over 50%.
  • Warranty: 1 year.

Other products:

  • Walkabout™ Tray: a quarter the size of a traditional lab bucket. Easy to use under the hood or in tight spaces. Superior insulative properties keep your samples at temperature after removing them from the bead bath, chill bucket or the refrigerator.
  • Chill Bucket™: Revolutionary lab ice bucket that works without ice. Chills while keeping everything dry and in place, so you no longer worry about watery meltdowns or losing track of your samples. Maintains temperatures of -20ºC to +8ºC for up to 8 hours.
  • Bead Block™: Replace common solid, drilled-out aluminum blocks in dry bath instruments. Eliminate the need for using multiple different size blocks to fit different sample vessels. Two sizes available in 5 colours. Temperature range from -80ºC to 200ºC (beads and blocks).
  • DryTemp™: Not designed around a solid block, but around lab armor beads for better flexibility and performance. Temperature range is 5ºC above ambient to 150ºC.
