Laboratory Incubator

The incubator is a piece of equipment that uses various heat and environmental control media transfers to obtain conditions in which specialized laboratory procedures can be performed. In general, they have an electrical resistance system controlled by devices such as thermostats or microprocessor controls. Regarding heat transfer systems, incubators mainly use natural or forced behavior and convection.

In incubators that operate by thermal conduction, the set of electrical resistances transfers heat directly to the walls of the chamber, where the samples are incubated. The resistor constitutes a region of high temperature, while the chamber is a region of lower temperature. Thermal energy transfer always occurs from the higher temperature region to the lower temperature region. In incubators that operate by thermal convection, the heat generated by the resistance system is transferred to a counter-ion circulating fluid, transferring heat to the samples.

How does the Laboratory Incubator work?

The laboratory incubator is equipment used to maintain microbiological and cell cultures. How is this achieved? The incubator has the ability to maintain optimum temperature and humidity, as well as the levels of carbon dioxide and oxygen that may be present in the incubator.

They are usually teams of great need, since it facilitates the execution of a number of experimental works, these studies can focus on molecular biology, microbiology and cell biology, among others. These incubators can usually be found in microbiology laboratories and can be widely used in the medical area, they can store plates and tubes without any inconvenience. The laboratory incubator is used to store and condition an environment where microorganisms develop properly, through temperature, pressure and of course air circulation. 

Advantages of Laboratory Incubators

The incubator is a piece of equipment that uses various means of heat transfer and environmental control, to obtain conditions under which specialized laboratory procedures can be carried out. In general, they have a system of electrical resistances that are controlled by devices such as thermostats or microprocessor controls. As for heat transfer systems, incubators basically use conduction and natural or forced convection. In incubators that work by thermal conduction, the set of electrical resistances directly transfers the heat to the walls of the chamber, where the samples are incubated. The resistors constitute a high temperature region, while the chamber is a lower temperature region. The transfer of thermal energy always occurs from the region of higher temperature to the region of lower temperature.

In incubators that work by thermal convection, the heat generated by the resistance system is transferred to a fluid –air– that circulates in the incubation chamber, transferring the heat to the samples; the efficiency of this process depends on the flow patterns of the process. In general, the air enters the incubator at the bottom and is heated in a compartment, from which it flows into the incubation chamber, following uniform flow patterns, to finally go outside through a duct located at the top. from the incubator.

Main applications of a CO2 incubator

A CO2 incubator is a laboratory equipment also called a gasification incubator, where the development of cell and tissue cultures is guaranteed by creating a natural atmosphere. This cultivation of living organisms in vitro is one of the main applications of CO2 incubators. That is why these devices are mainly used in medical research and in the pharmaceutical industry.

Tissue engineered products are drugs specially developed for new therapies. Through these new forms of treatment, science hopes to be able to cure hitherto incurable diseases, such as malignant tumors or cardiovascular failure. In the research, development and quality control of these drugs, CO2 incubators are responsible for the creation of cell and tissue cultures. In research work for lipid-based gene therapy in a human skin model, CO2 incubators were used to isolate epidermal keratocytes, to perform neutral red tests, and to prepare epidermal keratinocytes for transfection. Cells are produced in authorized centers for cell therapy. In this way, it is possible to reproduce living tissue, such as heart valves or blood vessels, in the laboratory...
