Incubators are used for the growth of microorganisms in many fields, including pharmaceuticals, agricultural, environmental, food, and industrial microbiology; public health; basic research; and education.

Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD, also called Biological Oxygen Demand) is the amount of dissolved oxygen needed – demanded – by aerobic biological organisms to breakdown organic materials present in a given sample at certain temperature over a specific time period.

BOD incubators are normally rated in the range of 20°C to 60°C.

Standard Features:

    • Prefabricated modular structure with PUF/Rockwool insulated panels and reinforced floor panel.
    • Racks & trays made of Stainless Steel with adjustable tray heights.
    • Adequate illumination inside the chamber.
    • Glass view panel with specially designed leak proof door
    • PLC based control system with 7” colour HMI.
    • CFC free refrigeration systems.
    • Works on 230/415 volts 50/60 Hz or as per requirement.
  • Man, Machine, Product and Environment Safety
    • Safety system to cut off the power supply in case of overshoot and undershoot of Temperature conditions giving audio visual alarms.
    • Additional safety thermostat to cut off the power supply in case of temperature overshoots.
    • Emergency push button inside the chamber to de-energise magnetic lock.
    • Panic switch inside the chamber with audible alarm outside.
    • Manual unlocking mechanism for door from inside the walk-in chamber.
  • Hydronic Cooling System
    • Thermolab has innovated a unique chilled water circulation system which reduces the electrical consumption by 60%.
    • Factory assembled refrigeration system, avoiding on-site piping work.
    • This unique design enables maintenance of optimum cooling coil temperatures depending on the chamber conditions and resultant Dew Point.
    • The life of compressor increases as the running time of compressor has enormously decreased.
    • Compact plug and play design and can be placed behind the chamber or in the technical area.
  • Air Processing Unit (APU)
    • Designed to achieve optimum energy utilization with Integrated Cooling and Heating system.
    • The airflow is designed to have uniform conditions throughout the chamber.
    • Custom designed supply and return air ducts particularly for chambers having larger storage volumes.
    • Sleek APU design resulted in increased storage volume.

Additional features:

    • Windows based SCADA software for data management having support for 21 CFR Part 11 compliance.
    • 100% redundant refrigeration systems with automatic changeover.
    • 8 point temperature monitoring sensors for online mapping.
    • Standby temperature sensors.
    • Printer interface and data storage facility.
    • Email and mobile alert systems.
    • Ethernet communication protocol.
    • Door Access Security system.
    • Remote audio visual alarm.
