Hybridisation oven, SI30H

Compact design
Rotisserie and rocker in one unit
Up and over door for accessibility
Accurate temperature control
Advanced safety features
Variable speed control

A very versatile 20 litre hybridisation incubator and combined rocker shaker which only requires a minimum of bench space. The incubator temperature is accurately set via the easy to use encoder controls and displayed by a bright LED. Forced air circulation combined with microprocessor control means outstanding temperature uniformity.

The `safety first' design includes an over-temperature protection system that automatically tracks the set temperature and controls the heater in the event of a fault. The smart system displays error codes indicating a fault has occurred or if the set temperature has been interrupted. The incubator also cuts power to the motor if it overheats or stalls.
The incubator has a stainless steel interior, whilst the door is constructed from a double glazed panel of smoked acrylic and polycarbonate to provide radiation protection. The `up and over' door mechanism gives excellent access to the incubator.

Conversion of the unit to a rocker shaker is fast and easy. Simply remove the rotisserie and pull forward the platform located at the rear of the incubator. The gentle rocking action is ideal for the washing stage of most hybridisation procedures. Rocking speed is fully variable allowing optimisation depending on application. A range of hybridisation bottles are available made from tough glass and leak proof PTFE faced screwcaps

Hybridisation bottles

Bottle hybridisation minimises probe volumes, reduces reagent volumes and enhances signal intensity.

Made from borosilicate glass Stuart hybridisation bottles are robust and can easily withstand the temperatures of the most rigorous hybridisation techniques. The thermoplastic polyester caps are very rigid and will not distort during repeated heating in the incubator which can lead to leakage. The seal is made by a PTFE faced insert that covers the entire inside of the cap making very good contact with the glass thread.

Available in three sizes, each bottle comes complete with cap and a care leaflet.
