Programmable Chilling Incubators Can Increase the Success Rates of Protein Crystallizations by Automatically Cycling Temperatures

EchoTherm™ Programmable, vibration free chilling incubators

Torrey Pines Scientific announces its EchoTherm™ Programmable, vibration free chilling incubators to improve the rates of success for protein crystallizations.

The incubators can be programmed to vary temperatures precisely from one set point to another repeatedly in a programmed routine thus increasing the success rates of protein crystallizations. The oscillations in temperatures from one point to another have been shown to create favorable crystallization pathways. Temperatures are settable from 4.0°C to 70.0°C. The units are Peltier-based for heating and chilling. They have no compressors or CFC's and are vibration-free making them ideal for doing protein crystallizations.

There are three programmable models with chamber sizes of 27.5 liter, 55.0 or 100 liter. They are settable to 0.1°C from 4.0° to 70.0°C and are accurate to ± 0.1°C. Three programs can be held in memory with 10-steps per program. All programs can be made to repeat from 1 to 99 times or infinitely, if wanted. The 27.5 liter unit chambers are 12" high by 10" deep by 14" wide and come with two stainless steel racks with room for four. The 55.0 liter unit chambers are 24” high by 10” deep x 14” wide and come with four stainless steel racks with room for six, and the 100 liter models have chambers of 24” high by 20” deep x 14” wide and come with 4 racks with room for six.  

The units are shipped with universal power supplies that take AC line inputs from 100VAC to 265VAC, 50/60 Hz and converts that to 12 volts DC for the units, AC line cord for the country of use, user's manual and full 12-month warranty. They are UL, CSA, and CE compliant.
