When you hear the word incubator you may automatically think of the small cribs newborn babies sleep in as they are taken care in the hospital. Or, maybe you think of the warm containers where germ cultures are grown for study and testing. Actually both uses are equally correct. An incubator can also store eggs that are meant to hatch later and no mother chicken is necessary. All sort of biological samples and materials need to be kept in a warm environment and sometimes the margins are very small between what is too toasty warm and what is too cold. Additionally, sometimes these incubators can be very expensive and very difficult to transport.

However, there is a company that offers a portable incubator that might solve many of these difficulties and really be an ideal addition in a lab anywhere in the world where money is scarce but the need for accurate temperature control is great. This incubator is designed to ship, and not just within a few miles, but over very long distances. It has a built in power supply that will monitor the internal temperature of the portable incubator and adjust it as necessary to keep the contents at exactly the right temperature. This power supply was designed to last for several days and this allows the incubator to be used as an incubator even while it is not being shipped. If your lab is short an incubator or two for a busy day or even if you simply do not have the funds to buy a fancy incubator, this portable incubator may just provide everything you need. The battery is even rechargeable, so if your power supply is variable or if you need it for long-term use, this is a perfect incubator for your needs.

Additional Temperature Controlled Transportable Incubator Benefits

Also, this portable incubator is small and sturdy which makes it perfect for small labs or labs where things could get shoved around. Then, if necessary, your portable incubator could be shipped off to a new site or to a coworker without needing to move your precious delicate samples from one incubator into another and on the other end of the shipping process, the recipient can just unpack the incubator, plug it into a power source, and use it again as an incubator just as you did. And again all this can be done without any concern for removing the samples from their perfectly maintained environment to another and enjoying the same convenience of small size and durable construction. Although designed for shipping purposes, these incubators also have LED displays on the outside and viewing windows that really do make them ideal as little incubators for even the day to day work in a laboratory environment no matter how crude or how low on space.

In other words, although a shipping container may not be what a lab tech dreams about at night when he is thinking of fancy equipment to do all his work in, these wonderful portable incubators really do solve a lot of typical problems that can be encountered in laboratories. Its battery operated power supply, its small construction, its durability, and its ability to be moved across the room or across the world without any complications all add up to a really great incubator package.
