Hybridization ovens are the preferred technique for hybridization in today’s laboratory. Incubation takes place inside the oven, under constant rotation, ensuring even distribution of probe solution over the membrane. While there are other solutions available for hybridization applications, hybridization ovens offer better agitation and higher throughput. They also require less volume per membrane area, resulting in savings for labs.
SHEL LAB SHO1 Hybridization Oven’s unique fan assisted airflow system circulates air evenly and continuously, delivering excellent temperature uniformity throughout the oven chamber. This system ensures fast recovery of chamber temperature after a door opening.
The digital temperature controller maximizes rapid heat-up of the oven. An over temperature safety control is automatically set by the microprocessor at 1.0°C above the setpoint. In the unlikely event of a microprocessor failure, a thermal cutoff will shut off the power to the heating elements.
The 2-20 RPM rotation speed range permits hybridization and washing at different speeds at the touch of a dial. A separate jogging switch has been included to allow incremental rotation of the carousel for easy loading and unloading. This unit has a 12 bottle capacity and is supplied with a drip pan with adjustable feet, a locking pin, and a power cord.
