Torrey Pines Scientific has announced

The 100-liter incubators are Peltier-based for heating and chilling. They have no compressors or CFCs and operate exceedingly well between 25°C to 33°C, the ideal temperatures for incubating zebrafish eggs and embryos. Other applications include incubating marine samples below room temperature, enzyme reaction and deactivation, protein crystallization, hybridization, ligations, storing oocytes, and general lab incubations.

There are two models. The IN55 is fully programmable and the IN50 is simple digital. They are settable from 4ºC to 70ºC and feature PID temperature control to ± 0.1°C, digital display to 0.1°C, and accuracy to ± 0.2ºC. They have RS232 I/O port for remote control and data collection, digital timer in hours, minutes and seconds with user settable auto-off, temperature ramping both up and down, and audible alarms.

Chamber size is 24” high by 20” deep by 14” wide and come with eight stainless steel racks with room for twelve.   

The units are shipped with universal power supplies that take AC line inputs from 100VAC to 265VAC, 50/60 Hz and converts that to 12 volts DC for the unit, AC line cord for the country of use, user’s manual and full 12-month warranty. They are UL, CSA, and CE compliant.
