ELISA Incubator - (Jul/10/2012 )

I need to buy an Incubator for a couple assay protocols that requires 96 well plate incubations at 37 degrees celsius. Any recommendations or suggestions about what to buy?



any incubator would do. We put plates in an incubator shaker on slow rotation overnight sometimes.


you gotta watch for hotspots within the incubator

We have validated isotemp from Fisher scientific and they met acceptance

don't go cheap

Thanks, I finally picked one up. It's a labnet incubator (which was pretty inexpensive), I'm testing it this week and I'll keep an eye out for hot spots and any edge effects in my assays.
