The main series of incubators include biochemical incubators, electric heating incubators, constant temperature incubators, and so on. Now the article mainly talks about the difference between biochemical incubators, constant temperature incubators, and electric heating constant temperature incubators.
Comparison of biochemical incubators and constant temperature incubators
1. Different features between biochemical incubators and constant temperature incubators
(1) Features of biochemical incubators
It is suitable for scientific research, colleges, and production departments such as environmental protection, sanitation and epidemic prevention, drug inspection, agriculture and livestock, and aquatic products. It is a piece of special constant temperature equipment for water body analysis and BOD measurement, cultivation, preservation, plant cultivation, and breeding test of bacteria, molds, and microorganisms.
① Biochemical incubators have digital microcomputer temperature controller so it is accurate and reliable for temperature control.
② It adopts stainless steel chamber. It is easy to clean, and the distance between the shelves in the box is adjustable.
③ Biochemical incubators using glass observation window, the observation is convenient and clear.
④ Equipped with spare temperature control o ensure the safe operation of the experiment without accidents.
(2) Features of constant temperature incubators
The constant temperature incubator (electric heating constant temperature incubator) is suitable for bacterial culture, fermentation, and constant temperature experiments in scientific research and industrial production departments such as medical and health, pharmaceutical industry, biochemistry, and agricultural science.
①The shell of the incubator is made of a high-quality cold-rolled steel plate, and the surface is electrostatically sprayed.
②The studio is made of stainless steel plate or high-quality cold-rolled steel plate and is treated with anti-rust and anti-corrosion.
③ Temperature controller or microcomputer intelligent temperature controller is choosable. The intelligent temperature controller adopts a PID control program, a large-screen digital display screen, light touch operation buttons, and an over-temperature alarm function.
④ There is a double-layer tempered glass observation window in the middle of the door, which is convenient for directly observing the changes in the culture.
⑤ it is magnetic tape sealing, easy to open and close good sealing.
2. Different temperature control accuracy of the incubator
(1) The biochemical incubator is mainly used for the incubation of biochemical reactions, so the door of the biochemical incubator is mainly composed of glass, which is used to incubate the reaction at a specific temperature. The operator can observe the changes of the reaction outside without destroying the reaction condition and it can also be used for the cultivation of bacterial molds and control bacteria.
(2) The constant temperature and humidity incubator is mainly used for culturing bacteria and controlling bacteria. It has good sealing performance, and the temperature and humidity are controllable and constant, but it is not easy to observe outside.
Comparison of biochemical incubator and electrothermal constant temperature incubator
1. Different temperature ranges
The biochemical incubator has a cooling function, and its temperature range is 4~60 degrees. The electric heating constant temperature incubator does not have a cooling function, and its temperature range is room temperature +5~65 degrees. Both are heated in the same way. A compressor is added to the biochemical incubator, which has the function of cooling.
2. Different controller
The electric heating constant temperature incubator adopts a microcomputer intelligent temperature controller, which has a dual digital display and PID auto-tuning functions for setting and measuring temperature, and the temperature control is accurate and reliable. The temperature control system of the biochemical incubator adopts microcomputer single-chip technology, which has high-temperature control accuracy, time adjustment control, and touches mode keyboard setting adjustment.
3. Difference in styles
The main difference between the two in appearance is that the biochemical incubator has a glass observation window but the electric heating incubator does not. The standard biochemical incubator is equipped with casters and the inner box is equipped with lighting.
4. Different price
The biochemical incubator of the same size is more expensive than the electric heating constant temperature incubator, which is determined by its performance and quality.
