Laboratory evaporators are an integral piece of equipment, primarily in analytical chemistry labs. These evaporators are typically used to prepare samples for analysis by removing liquids from samples that need to be dry. They utilize motion, gas, heat, or a combination of the three, to prep the sample. Commonly used evaporators include nitrogen evaporators, vacuum evaporators and rotary evaporators; each of which has its own sets of pros and cons.
CO2 incubators mimic a cell’s natural environment in order to develop cell and tissue cultures. However, this process can take several weeks, so it’s extremely important that the temperature, humidity, and CO2 content remain consistent and match the cells requirements throughout the entire process. Frequently used in the medical research and pharmaceutical industries, they provide sterile conditions for any instance when cells must grow in a completely germ-free environment.
