Bead baths are dry, thermal metallic beads used to maintain the temperature of samples by using heated or cooled beads. he beads create a uniform temperature environment that surrounds the tubes or containers holding the samples, ensuring that they are heated or cooled evenly. They are designed to replace water in any standard depth, non-circulating and non-shaking lab water bath. Bead baths can also be used to replace aluminum blocks in dry baths and ice in ice buckets. Bead baths are commonly used in scientific research, microbiology, and molecular biology applications, as well as in clinical and industrial settings. They are particularly useful for applications that require precise and consistent temperature control, such as enzymatic reactions, DNA amplification, and protein denaturation experiments. These types of laboratory baths are less likely to harbor and contribute to transmitting microorganisms in the laboratory, given that beads are dry and naturally more resistant to microbial growth than water. They are compatible with various types of tubes and containers, and some models even come with interchangeable blocks that allow users to customize the size and shape of the wells.
