Bead baths replace the water typically used in laboratory baths with reusable metallic beads. This alternative method eliminates a common cause of experimental contamination and distorted outcomes. More efficient models, the bead baths require significantly less electricity as the beads do not evaporate and cleanup time. Featuring a fast start up, the baths use surround heating for uniformity and prevent hot spotting. Over-temperature protection guarantees that conditions stay safe for samples involved.
