Model 400 Hybridization Oven

SciGeneThe Model 400 Hybridization Oven is uniquely designed with a passive heating system to provide precisely controlled temperatures within the incubator chamber.

Sturdy rubber strips with embedded heating wires surround and heat the stainless steel chamber. The warm air within the chamber is then circulated through movement of the rotator to ensure temperature uniformity. A precision controller regulates the temperature to ± 0.10°C and displays both set and actual temperatures. An external jack connected to a probe within the chamber can be attached to a digital thermometer for temperature calibration and instrument certification.

Special attention has been given to the design of the hybridization oven chamber and door to ensure an airtight and watertight environment. The stainless steel interior is constructed without seams along the bottom to prevent solution leakage in the event of a spill. A removable stainless steel pan is provided for easy cleanup of drips and minor spills. The heavy duty, dual-paned, tempered glass door has a seamless gasket and levered latching system to prevent the escape of heated air from the chamber. As an added safety feature, all SciGene incubators come with thick-walled, borosilicate glass tubes that resist breakage and provide effective radioisotope shielding. A specially designed cap made

Precisely Controlled Mixing Rotation for Efficient Hybridization Rotators and Accessories for a Multitude of Samples and Uses
The Model 400 hybridization oven comes standard with a rotator that holds ten long (300 mm) or twenty short (150 mm) tubes. A complimentary 35x300mm glass tube is provided. Additional glass tubes and caps can be purchased separately. Five optional rotators and a rocking platform are also offered for special applications. See our selection of tubes, rotators and accessories.

For long transfer membranes, a rotator that holds six large (75x300 mm) bottles is available. Three special rotators hold 80x50 ml, 200x15 ml or 400x1.5 ml capped tubes respectively. For heating and rotating containers and racks, a general purpose rotator holds items securely to a rotating platform using springs and clamps. Lastly, a removable variable speed rocking platform for heating and mixing solutions is available.

Easy Calibration with a Digital Thermometer
To ensure accurate (± 0.5°C) oven temperatures, the performance of the controller can be periodically checked. To perform a calibration, a NIST certified digital thermometer (Cat. #1051-52-0) is connected to a jack on the oven. With the oven temperature stabilized at 65°C, the temperature shown on the thermometer should match that shown on the controller within 0.5°C.
