Modern Upgrade.

Lab Armor Beads are dry metallic beads that replace water/ice/oil/sand in baths, giving old equipment a cool, shiny, state-of-the-art upgrade.                

Stays clean.

Lab Armor eliminates water bath contamination, harmful germicides, and unpleasant maintenance. 


Beads are dry and naturally more resistant to microbial growth than water, and therefore, are less likely to harbor and contribute to transmitting microorganisms in the laboratory. 

Saves time & Money.

Lab Armor Beads will help you save time and money. No more hassling with emptying, cleaning, and refilling water baths.


Always On.

The bath stays on so there is no need to plan around warm-up times. Lab Armor Beads eliminate the worry about low water burnout because there is no water to evaporate.

Other benefits of using Lab Armor Beads:

  • Cleaner working environment.

  • Greater organization capabilities as samples are held in place.

  • Environmentally friendly.

Why Choose Lab Armor Beads?

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 that are 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.
