  • LCD screen for operating parameter observation
  • Highly precise temperature control over broad temperature range
  • Leak-proof molded aluminum alloy heating chamber coated with PTFE
  • End-user temperature calibration
  • Safety features include over-temperature protection and SSR failure protection
  • Wide range of user-interchangeable blocks available (please see below)
  • Blocks include a block lifter and thermometer well
  • Optional PC control software available


The Elite Dry block incubator is designed for a variety of applications including restriction digest, DNA denaturation, melting agar, coagulation studies, hybridisation and hot start thermocycler reactions. It can be used as a dry block heater, a water bath, or a bead bath incubator.

The Elite Dry features a leak-proof molded aluminum alloy heating chamber coated with PTFE and a digital microprocessor controller provides highly precise temperature control over a broad temperature range from 5°C above ambient to 150°C.

A large LCD screen displays operating parameters and the unit includes safety features that provide protection against over-temperature and solid state relay failure. Optional PC control software allows the dry bath incubator to perform real time data recording through a PC.

A range of block options offers flexibility to labs with multiple tube and plate applications (please see options below). These precision-machined aluminium alloy blocks allow for highly efficient heat transfer to samples. Each block has a block lifter well to assist in removing blocks from the instrument as well as a thermometer well.
