The MD-02N from Major Science is a compact dry block heat bath that features a digital LCD readout monitor that displays both actual and target temperature. The heating range is from 5°C above room temperature to 150°C with a temperature stability of ±0.2°C. The unit is microprocessor-controlled and has an RS232 port and a timing range from 1 to 999 minutes. 

A range of block options offers flexibility to labs with multiple tube and plate applications (please see options below). An optional temperature probe is available for placing in the blocks to monitor block temperature.

Block options
