A dry bath incubator, also known as a dry block heater or dry block incubator, is a laboratory instrument designed for controlled and consistent heating of samples in tubes, vials, or microplates. Unlike traditional water baths, dry bath incubators use metal blocks that are heated to specific temperatures to provide a stable and dry heating environment. They are commonly used in molecular biology, microbiology, and clinical laboratories for applications such as DNA amplification, enzyme reactions, and sample incubation. Dry bath incubators offer precise temperature control, often with digital displays and programmable settings, allowing users to maintain samples at a specific temperature for a defined duration. These instruments are prized for their versatility, ease of use, and the elimination of contamination risks associated with water baths. They play a crucial role in ensuring the reproducibility and consistency of experiments, making them essential tools in various laboratory settings.
