Different types of Incubators

Introduction and Differences of Most Widely Used Incubators in Laboratory:


1. Light Incubator

The light incubator is a high-precision constant temperature equipment with the function of illumination; the light incubator is a special constant temperature incubator for the cultivation and breeding of bacteria, molds and microorganisms, especially suitable for scientific research and production in the fields of bioengineering, medical research, agriculture and forestry science, aquatic products, animal husbandry and so on. Light incubator shell is generally cold-rolled steel plate, the surface of the electrostatic spraying process, the inner liner for engineering plastics or stainless steel, insulation layer formed by polyester foam, transparent window using double-layer hollow glass to ensure the insulation performance of the box, the inside of the box has cold and hot air duct box gas circulation fluency, temperature more uniform.


2. Microbial Incubator

Microbial incubator is suitable for environmental protection, sanitation and epidemic prevention, agricultural and animal husbandry, drug inspection, aquatic products and other scientific research, laboratory and production departments. It is a special constant temperature and constant temperature oscillatory equipment for water analysis and BOD determination of bacteria, molds, microorganisms cultivation, preservation, plant cultivation, breeding experiments.

What is the connection between the microbial incubator and the light incubator?

Light incubator is mainly used for plant cultivation, microbial incubator according to the different types of microorganisms and different types, generally aerobic and anaerobic two kinds.


3. Plant Growth Incubator

Plant incubator is actually a constant temperature incubator with light and humidity, in which light, temperature, humidity and other conditions can meet the growth needs of plants. The principle of a plant incubator is a set of lamps and a set of temperature control devices (usually 5-50 degrees). If there are lighting settings at the advanced point, for example, when to turn on the lights, turn off the lights, and when the light is stronger.


4. Artificial Climate Chamber

The small-sized sealed isolation equipment, which can control illumination, temperature, humidity, atmospheric pressure and gas composition, is called "artificial climate box".


5. Constant Temperature And Humidity Chamber

Constant temperature and humidity box: a box with accurate temperature and humidity control system, which can accurately simulate the complex natural environment such as constant temperature and humidity. Laboratories are generally used for plant culture and breeding experiments; bacteria and microorganisms are used for breeding, fermentation, microorganism culture, various constant temperature experiments, rings. Environmental test, material denaturation test and storage of substances such as culture medium, serum, medicine, etc. It can be widely used in drug, textile, food processing and other aseptic tests, widely used in medical and health, biopharmaceutical, agricultural research, environmental protection and other research and application fields.


Constant temperature and humidity box industry is generally used in Electronics and Electricians, Household Appliances, Automobiles, Instrumentation, Electronics and Chemical Industry, Parts and Components, Raw Materials and Coatings, Coating For High and Low Temperature, High and Low Humidity Experiments, In Space, Aviation, Shipping, Weapons, Electronics, Petrochemical, Post and Telecommunications, Communications, Automotive and other fields favored.



Difference Between Constant Temperature Incubator And Mold Incubator


6. incubator for constant temperature: two types

1) Separated Water Electrothermal Incubator

2)  Electrothermal Incubator


Water-insulated electric constant temperature incubator: when the water jacket is cut off, it can still keep the temperature well. It adopts two kinds of temperature control methods: microcomputer intelligent temperature controller and bimetal plate regulator. The temperature control range is +5 -60 C at room temperature. The temperature can only be stabilized above room temperature without refrigeration.


But the mold incubator, because the suitable growth temperature of the mold is 22-28 degrees centigrade, so the mold incubator must have the double system cold and hot control temperature, when the summer room temperature is higher than 30 degrees centigrade, in order to ensure the mold suitable growth, must refrigerate, the temperature is lowered, when the winter room temperature is lower than 10 degrees centigrade, in order to ensure the mold suitable growth, must be heated. The temperature is upregulated. Therefore, the mold incubator and incubator with the same volume are more expensive.


7. Biochemical Incubator and Mold Incubator


Biochemical incubator biochemical box is widely used in the culture and preservation of bacteria, molds, microorganisms, tissue cells, water quality analysis and BOD testing, suitable for breeding experiments, plant cultivation. It is an important test equipment for laboratories of scientific research institutions, colleges and universities, production units or departments in the fields of biology, genetic engineering, medicine, health and epidemic prevention, environmental protection, agriculture, forestry and animal husbandry.


The similarities: The two have dual systems of cold and heat control.

Differences: The biochemical incubator has no function of controlling humidity and disinfection, while the mold has both function of controlling humidity and disinfection.
