Incubator Lab Equipment – The BINDER Way

Accurate control over temperature, humidity, and levels of CO2 and O2 are crucial factors for incubators and climate chambers in labs working with living organisms.

BINDER understands these essential needs and is committed to delivering top-notch CO2 incubators, microbiological incubators, and plant growth chambers. All of BINDER’s offerings come with innovative technology and include an array of standard equipment options for comprehensive solutions.

Learn more about these solutions below:

CO2 Incubators

CO2 incubators are specifically designed for cell culture applications, often found in medical research, tissue engineering, and pharmaceutical settings. What sets BINDER’s CO2 incubators apart is their precise control over temperature, humidity, and CO2 levels.

These incubators feature an optimized double-pan humidification system with condensation protection and an anti-contamination concept using 180°C hot air sterilization. Unlike standard incubators, CO2 incubators also offer CO2 gas mixing via a Venturi effect, thus ensuring optimal environmental conditions for cell growth.

Standard Incubators

Standard incubators, such as BINDER’s BD series, are typically utilized in microbiological research. These incubators offer a broad temperature range from ambient +5°C up to +100°C, without the need for specialized control over gas levels, unlike CO2 incubators.

The APT.line™ preheating chamber technology ensures excellent temperature accuracy and uniformity. Standard incubators are more energy-efficient, reducing energy consumption by up to 30% compared to conventional units, and provide disinfection capabilities at +100°C, offering a versatile and reliable environment for microbial growth.

Refrigerated Incubators

Refrigerated incubators, also known as cooling incubators, like BINDER’s KB series are for applications that require lower temperature conditions, ranging from -10°C to 100°C. They feature a powerful compressor cooling unit, making them different from standard incubators.

Additionally, the KB series offers precise temperature control and can disinfect at +100°C. These incubators are particularly useful in areas like food and beverage testing, where temperature-sensitive microbiological cultures are prevalent.

Growth Chambers

Growth chambers, such as BINDER’s KBW and KBWF series, are engineered specifically for plant biology applications. Unlike standard and CO2 incubators, growth chambers offer temperature and humidity control and incorporate specialized illumination cassettes for plant growth.

These chambers can maintain a temperature range of 0°C to +70°C and are equipped with BINDER’s APT.line™ preheating chamber technology for even temperature distribution. The intuitive touchscreen controller with time-segment and real-time programming offers an extra layer of customization for plant biologists.

Industries that Utilize Laboratory Incubators

Laboratory incubators are invaluable tools that play a critical role in various industries. They are essential for maintaining controlled environments crucial for different forms of biological and chemical research.

Cell Biology Incubator Uses:

CO2 incubators are particularly beneficial in the field of cell biology. They provide optimal conditions for cell culture, mimicking an organism’s natural environment. These incubators are packed with features like anti-contamination measures, temperature controls, and precise levels of CO2 and humidity. Used extensively in drug discovery, regenerative medicine, and tissue engineering, they are key players in advancements in medical and therapeutic research.

Microbiology Incubator Uses:

In microbiology, incubators are split into two main types—standard incubators and cooling incubators. Standard incubators are primarily used for culturing bacteria and other microorganisms at controlled temperatures and conditions. Cooling incubators add the functionality of being able to cool samples or cultures below room temperature for long-term storage or specific testing like biochemical oxygen demand (BOD). Both types support research in areas such as antibiotic resistance, epidemiology, and food safety.

Plant Biology Uses:

Plant biology heavily relies on specialized plant growth chambers or incubators for controlled study and development. These chambers simulate various natural conditions like day-night cycles, temperature variations, and humidity levels. They aid in research related to plant genetics, seed germination, and responses to environmental stress factors. The data gathered from these chambers contribute to both academic research and commercial applications in agriculture.
