Thermoelectric Cooler Assemblies for Reagent Storage

Introduction

Maintaining a temperature well below ambient, and monitoring this temperature carefully, are critical to extending the shelf life of reagents used for in vitro diagnostics. Most reagents require refrigeration and would spoil within hours at room temperatures. Reagents can degrade and become contaminated by microbial growth, which can affect test integrity results. Reagents can also be negatively impacted if they undergo too many freeze and thaw cycles.

Cooling for Centrifuges

A centrifuge is a laboratory device using centrifugal force to separate liquid mixtures. To separate fluids, the centrifuge spins samples at a fast rate, resulting in heavy components to migrate away from the center axis and lighter components to migrate towards the axis. Centrifuge devices are widely used tools in food processing and medical research for cellular, genetic and protein analysis. When designing laboratory and medical centrifuges, several design challenges must be considered. 

Peltier Cooling for Refrigerated Centrifuges

 

Introduction

Centrifugation is a process that separates mixtures through centrifugal force. Centrifuges are commonly used in food processing and medical research for protein, genetic and cellular analysis. In medical laboratory settings, centrifugation involves spinning medical samples at a fast rate to filter or concentrate substances based on differing densities. Dense components migrate away from the center axis, while less dense components migrate towards the axis.

Heating and Cooling of Incubator Chambers

Introduction

Incubators, used for cell and tissue cultivation in hospital and laboratory settings, grow and maintain cell and tissue samples under controlled conditions for hours, weeks, or even months. They create the ideal environment for cell and tissue sample growth by maintaining optimum levels for temperature, humidity, carbon dioxide, and oxygen. Precision control of these factors enables research and experimental work in industries where cell culture is vital, such as zoology, microbiology, pharmaceutical research, food science, and cosmetics.

Heating and Cooling of Incubator Chambers

Incubators used in hospital and laboratories are designed to provide the optimal environment for cell growth. Since proteins are extremely sensitive to environmental deviations, a temperature difference by as little as 6°C from the body temperature of 37°C, have a negative impact on cell health. If too cold, cell growth slows and if too hot, sensitive proteins begin to denature.
