Make the Ultimate Upgrade from a lab water bath to a Bead Bath

Get a Bead Bath or fill your lab water bath with Lab Armor® Beads and upgrade your entire lab experience

Lab Armor Beads are dry, thermal metallic beads designed to replace water in any standard depth, non-circulating and non-shaking lab water bath. Beads can also be used to replace aluminum blocks in dry baths and ice in ice buckets. Beads are dry and naturally more resistant to microbial growth than water and therefore less likely to harbor and contribute to transmitting microorganisms in the laboratory. 

Lab Armor Beads prevent distorted data and dangers resulting from inaccurate temperatures, evaporated lab water baths, and water-exposed contaminated samples. The Beads are designed to decrease microbial contamination that can ruin experiments or lead to safety issues in the laboratory.

Lab Armor Beads flow fluidly and can conform to all sizes and shapes of vessels placed within the bath. Vessels prone to tipping over or floating away no longer require racks, floats or bottleneck weights to secure them in place. Sample vessels can be conveniently buried into the beads to avoid temperature gradients associated with exposure to room temperature air. Bottles will rest on the surface and conical tubes will stay firmly in place in less than 1/2 inch of Beads.

 

“Purchased to decrease water bath contamination. Experience has been wonderful with decreased time taken for cleaning and decreased contamination of tissue culture.
