Water Bath Description
One of the first things you will have to consider is the size of the water bath. It will depend on the volume of the samples that you are regularly adding to the bath. The size can range from around 1.5 liters all the way up to 43 liters for massive water baths. You will want to look at the internal dimensions of the tank to get the true volume so you will know the size you need. In addition to choosing the right size, see if you can also rent or lease a cover for the water bath. This is not always necessary, but if you are worried about contamination, it is certainly something you will want to consider.
Features of water baths
The water baths have a basin or cavity where the water goes, along with a plug for power. They will have controls, usually right on the bath, so that you can set the temperature you need. They may have other settings and alarms on the device as well, but this is not the case with all of the models. The temperatures of the water bath can vary based on the unit that you get. Most will have preset buttons on them that will allow for quick selection between some of the most common temperature points.
How water baths work
The bath is very simple to use. You will fill it with as much water as you need, and then turn it on to get the temperature to heat up. Most of the units you will find are electronic models with an easy to use control scheme. This makes it nice and easy to set the temperature and keep it steady.
About water baths
A water bath is one of the most common and important parts of a laboratory. They are able to provide help in a number of different ways. For example, you can use a water bath to help thaw samples that have come out of a freezer. You can find warm reagents, act as an assay, and be helpful for bacteriological exams. You will find these baths hard at work in the food industry, research labs, in clinical labs and more all around the world.
