IVYX Scientific 5L Laboratory Incubator 0°C to +55°C (32 to 131°F)
This incubator functions as a refrigerator or warm incubator by means of a thermoelectric (Peltier) system. Two removable shelves creates 3 platforms. The desired temperature is set on the digital LED display, and the incubator immediately starts heating or cooling, while accurately monitoring the temperature inside and displaying it on the LED panel. NOTE: There is a temperature gradient inside the unit, but the temperature is stable within each shelf.
The incubator can heat samples up to 55°C while using only 46W at 110V. A temperature gradient is present inside the chamber: the temperature at the top shelf is higher than on the bottom shelf. Within each shelf, the temperature only fluctuates by 0.5°C.
The incubator is able to cool down ~23°C below ambient temperature, using only 54W at 110V. While technically able to be set to -18°C, at normal room temperature it will go down to -3°C. Again, a temperature gradient is present between the top and the bottom, but within each shelf, the temperature fluctuates by only 0.5°C
With a small footprint of 8 in x 11 in x 12 in, this incubator will not take valuable space while having a 5L (6x6x10 in) chamber volume.
At only 9 lbs the incubator is easy to move around. A 12V DC car power cord allows the unit to heat or cool your samples on the go.
