Laboratory incubators

The incubators are laboratory equipment that is used to maintain and grow microbiological cultures or cell cultures, regulating viable growth factors such as temperature, humidity and ventilation.

There are incubators that have the ability to control extremely low temperatures (microbiological incubators), humidity, and carbon dioxide levels (incubators for cell cultures). Microbiological incubators are mainly used in the growth and storage of bacterial cultures at temperatures between 5 and 37 ยบC. For their part, the incubators for cell culture work at a temperature of 37 ยบC, simulating the conditions of body temperature.

Laboratory incubators are widely used for biology applications, such as for cell and tissue culture, for pharmaceutical and hematological studies, for biochemical studies, food processing and cell aeration, it is also used for animal studies, solubility studies and fermentation as well as for bacteria cultures.

Incubators are widely used for the study of tissue cultures that involve the extraction of fragments of animal or plant tissue and to store these โ€œexplantsโ€ (for example cells isolated from a portion of tissues) in controlled environments (temperature, pH, CO2 and humidity) and subsequently analyze its growth.

Types of laboratory incubators

Standard incubator

They are characterized by assisted convection, perhaps by gravity or fan. They have a temperature range of 80 ยฐ to 100 ยฐ C maximum.


Refrigerated incubators

Operate at a temperature close to or lower than room temperature.


Humidity incubator

This incubator has the ability to control both temperature and humidity, this is achieved through a refrigeration system instead of direct heating.

Shaking incubators

They have the ability to shake at a controlled temperature, these can be found in different sizes and with specific ranges of ambient and refrigerated.

COโ‚‚ 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 culture of living organisms in vitro is one of the main applications of CO2 incubators. That is why these devices are used mainly in medical research and in the pharmaceutical industry in:

Tissue engineering products are drugs developed especially 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.

Kalstein Testimonials

In principle, you should know that the laboratory incubator has an appearance similar to that of an executive-type refrigerator. You can see that among its parts it has a panel where the temperature and internal data of the incubator are indicated. Inside it you can find a stainless steel enclosure, made of this material to avoid wear and tear in the area, due to the type of work that is carried out.

In some of its presentations you will see a glass door that protects the shelves from any external substance or contaminant that may enter the incubator. Without a doubt, knowing what the parts of a laboratory incubator are and what they are for can be of great help when handling this great equipment. You will have a better handling of it and of course better results in the studies you want to carry out.
