Cool new life science products from Techne

Techne NoICE.jpgACHEMA 2009 saw the launch of two innovative sample-cooling products from Techne: the N° ICE is an electronic ice bucket containing ceramic-coated beads and the BL°CKICE cools tubes held in two Dri-Block® inserts. Both the N° ICE and BL°CKICE are ideal for incubating samples for short or long periods at temperatures down to 0°C - no more tubes floating in boxes of melting wet ice!

Innovative bead technology enables the N° ICE to maintain any set temperature in the range 0 to 40°C, for example to keep reagents at 4°C throughout the working day. The small autoclavable and chemically resistant beads give the N° ICE the versatility to support sample or reagent vessels of any shape. Cooling time can be saved by keeping the bucket of beads in a fridge overnight and simply inserting it into the N° ICE when needed.

The BL°CKICE, Techne's first cooling block, offers the same 0 to 40°C range as the N° ICE, but with more accurate temperature control and additional timer and alarm features. This product holds different sized tubes in two standard aluminium block inserts from the Dri-Block range. Fast cool-down times ensure the unit is quickly availably for use. An integrated timer allows up to 9 days to be programmed, with a buzzer sounding when the set temperature is reached and at the end of the elapsed time.
The BL°CKICE also accommodates the N° ICE bucket of beads, if required.

The novel N° ICE and BL°CKICE will prove ideal sample-cooling solutions in life science and molecular biology laboratories, providing accurate, stable sub-ambient temperatures for a wide range of applications. Both products can display temperature to one decimal place in either degrees Centigrade or Fahrenheit.
