Laboratory Incubators- Uses and Manufacturing

A laboratory incubator provides a controlled environment, humidity and temperature. These are widely used in the fields of medicine, biochemistry and agriculture.

Materials used to manufacture laboratory incubator:

Basically, three kinds of materials are used to manufacture a laboratory incubator. First of all, common grade stainless steel of thickness about .05-1 cm. Secondly, the other materials such as motor, fans, nuts and screws. Last, the electronic components of the laboratory incubator. It may be regulated through simple on/off feature or it may contain a bit complex programmed controlled panel to regulate the temperature and the light.

Size of laboratory incubator:

These laboratory incubators also vary on the basis of the volume. The countertop models range from 1.5 to 3 cubic meters volume while on the other hand, the free standing variety of laboratory incubator ranges from 5.5 to 10 cubic meters of the volume.

Laboratory incubator use in medical field:

Laboratory incubator has a great functionality in the medical field. For example, it can identify the bacterial presence in the human body. In this process, a sample from the infectious body is taken and put on the sterile dish. It is then placed inside the laboratory incubator to induce the bacterial growth at a temperature of 37 C or 98.6 F. Adequate amount of nitrogen is also provided to facilitate the smooth growth of the bacterial cell. This controlled environment provides a suitable scenario for the growth of the bacterial cells. In this way, the clinicians get an idea about the disease.

Laboratory incubator use in Tissue culture:

It is used to conduct the tissue culture process in which tissues are obtained from a plant or an animal. These tissues are then placed in the laboratory incubator at a controlled temperature and humidity level. In this way, the scientists observe the growth pattern of the tissues. It is also helpful to treat the patients of cancer. The scientists get valuable information about the tissues that is not possible in the natural environment. This research is further used to make certain medicines to treat diseases such as malaria, influenza, fever, measles etc.

Laboratory incubator use in genetic engineering:

Genetic engineering also involves the processes in which tissues are involved. These processes are used to identify the nature of DNA and its behavior. It is also used in the process of sperm banks, cloning and eugenics. It is also used in the poultry industry.
