Data Sheet


The completely solid-state large, Heavy-Duty, Digital, Electronic Chilling/Heating Dry Bath is versatile, reliable and easy to use. The IC30 has simple digital controls and a two line alphanumeric digital display that is backlit for easy reading.

The chilling/heating surface is a 5” (12.7 cm) square aluminum plate that is very flat for optimal contact with your sample. When unloaded, the plate surface will reach below 0°C in under two minutes. It will also heat to 37°C in approximately 3 minutes. This rate of chilling or heating may vary with the load on the plate. For instance, temperatures down to 4.0°C can be reached on a solid aluminum block in less than one hour. When insulated, these large blocks can be driven below 0°C. Temperature gradients from the center to the edge of any aluminum block mentioned will be less than 0.5°C at any temperature.

Sample covers are available for covering aluminum blocks.


  • Energy-efficient Peltier design
  • Digital control to 1°C from -20°C to 100°C without sample block
  • Control at ambient
  • Built-in data logger
  • Count down timer (up to 30 days) with audible alarm and user settable Auto-Off
  • RS232 I/O port for data collection
  • Electronic calibration. Factory set, but user can set to any local standard
  • Small, compact size. Uses very little bench space
  • 12-volt DC operation. External power supply provided
  • 12-month warranty
  • UL, CSA and CE compliant


  • Unattended restriction digestions or ligations at elevated temperatures then reducing temperature to 4°C automatically to reduce non-specific nuclease digestion of target DNA
  • Automatically stopping reactions by having the unit reduce sample temperature after a specific reaction time
  • Producing denatured probes or single stranded DNA molecules by heating to 90°C/95°C for a given time and rapidly reducing temperature to 4°C to prevent renaturation
  • Automatic temperature profiles to grow bacteria at 37°C, then increasing temperature to induce events, and then lowering temperature to 4°C to prevent degradation
  • Maintaining 14°C for ligation reactions
  • Enzyme reactions and deactivations
  • Maintaining 17°C for storing oocytes
  • Storing reagents at 4C in 15, 50, 250, and 500ml centrifuge tubes
  • Storing samples at ice bucket temperatures without the mess
  • Incubating samples at 37°C in 96-well assay plates or in aluminum blocks holding 0.2, 0.5 and 1.5 ml centrifuge tubes, vials, and test tubes
  • Storing enzyme or DNA libraries at your workstation
  • Freezing and storing most any sample at your workstation
