The Bead Block™ is no ordinary dry bath heat block.  It’s not designed around a solid block, but around Lab Armor® Beads™ for better flexibility and performance.

An aluminum block filled with Lab Armor® Beads™ designed for use with any standard commercially available dry bath.

Bead Block™ replaces common drilled-out aluminum heat blocks and provides for optimal temperature uniformity and accuracy while incubating common lab vessels, including microfuge tubes, test tubes, and even microplates and slides.

Portable and Easy to Handle!

Although it stands only slightly taller than a standard heat block, Bead Block’s deeper tub gives you flexibility to incubate different kinds of tall and short vessels, wide and narrow vessels, all together – making life a little bit simpler in the lab.

The Next Generation of Dry Baths.
