Torrey Pines Scientific Inc, Carlsbad, Calif, has released the two-position EchoTherm model IC22 digital chilling and heating dry bath for use in chilling or heating biological samples from 10°C to 100°C. Saving valuable bench space, the device can run two separate or identical temperatures and two different sample blocks at the same time. The unit has a built-in data logger, 30-day countdown timer with alarm, and RS232 interface, making it suitable for use with robotic systems. It can be used with standard accessory sample blocks for 0.5 ml, 1.5 ml, and 2.0 ml centrifuge tubes, polymerase chain reaction tubes and plates, 96-well and 384-well assay plates of all kinds, vials, and most sizes of test tubes. Custom blocks are available on special order. The IC22 is suited for enzyme reactions and deactivations, hybridizations, incubating samples above, below, or at room temperature, ligations, maintaining 17°C for storing oocytes, storing enzymes or DNA libraries, and storing samples at ice bucket temperatures.
