Chill and heat samples from -10 to +100°C (without sample block) with precise control, even at ambient temperatures, on this heavy-duty, versatile unit.
Blocks to fit 1.5ml tubes up to 50ml tubes and even round-bottom flasks are available as accessories.
The IC30 model offers the same features as the IC20 unit but has a higher capacity. Please note the IC30 model must be used with the high capacity blocks, not the standard blocks.
The completely solid-state EchoTherm IC30 unit is a large, heavy-duty, digital, electronic chilling/heating dry bath which is versatile, reliable and easy to use.
Simple digital controls with a backlit two line alphanumeric digital display make reading and programming the unit easy.
The chilling/heating surface is a 5" (127mm) square aluminium plate that is very flat for optimal sample contact. When unloaded, the plate surface can reach below 0°C in under 2 minutes, or heat to 37°C in 3 minutes. This rate of heating and chilling will vary with plate load.
When working with one of the solid aluminium tube holding blocks, temperatures down to 4°C are reached in less than 1 hour. The blocks can be driven below 0°C when insulated.
Temperature gradients from the centre to the edge of any of the aluminium tube holding blocks are less than 0.5°C at any temperature.
