Grant Instruments has launched the GLS Aqua Plus series linear shaking water baths, designed for biology applications such as hybridisation, producing bacterial culture media and solubility studies.
The GLS Aqua Plus series includes a choice of two models (12 and 18 litre) and features a robust, patented, magnetically coupled shaking mechanism, which provides high reliability, consistency and quiet operation.
The baths include a drain tap to allow easy tank emptying, two programmable temperature and shaking presets for rapid selection of commonly used set points, a countdown timer with audible buzzer and non-drip polycarbonate lids.
The transparent gabled polycarbonate lid not only improves performance of the baths but also limits evaporation, reduces contamination and conserves energy.
The new models feature precision temperature control throughout the operating range of ambient +5C to 99C with +/-0.1C stability and uniformity.
A wide range of accessories is available for the GLS Aqua Plus range, including flask and test-tube trays, as well as test-tube and microtube racks.
Grant states that the new water baths, which come with a three-year warranty as standard, are built to last and manufactured using only the highest-quality materials.
The Aqua Plus range of water baths complement the existing Grant Optima series of stirred thermostatic baths and heating circulators and are part of Grant's comprehensive range of scientific products.
This includes block heaters and coolers, baths/circulators and re-circulating chillers, and under the Grant-bio brand, thermoshakers, rockers, rotators, shakers, centrifuges and vortex mixers.
