Bacteriological incubator

It is used for the storage of bacterial culture growth and bacteria plate at 37 degrees Celsius. These incubators are fixed up with heating temperature only; therefore, these are also familiar as heated incubators. In these incubators, the set temperatures are mostly in the range of 10°C above ambient to 60°C.

At Kumar Instruments, they also make bigger size bacterial germination on demand. Each unit is fitted with a digital temperature controller for brilliant reliability and accuracy. These incubators are pretty economical and fit in everyone’s money pocket structure. They want almost no maintenance and supply wonderful performance for extended years without the requirement of after-sales service.

How do bacteriological incubators work?

General Cleaning Procedure

1.           Make certain that the power supply to the incubator is OFF.
2.           Brush the incubator regularly externally with a good dry cloth.
3.           Once in a while remove glued dirt by wet mopping utilizing soap solution. Afterward, rub the surface with a polished dry cloth to kick out the moisture.
4.           Wash the interior surfaces with a sponge dry cloth regularly.

Operating Procedure

1.           Make certain that the incubator is correctly linked to the power supply.
2.           First of all, Switch ‘ON’ the main switch and there afterward, the cabinet switch.
3.           Set the stand-in to need the temperature to 37.0 °C by pressing the soft keys and set the knob.
4.           Keep track of the temperature regularly as per the following process.
5.           Temperature shall be registered which is put on a show on LCD of the controller of the incubator.
6.           Notice the temperature appear on the digital display. The temperature must not differ by +2 degrees Celcius.
7.           Incubator Temperature having online printer shall be registered in printout chart.
8.           Take the printout on weekly basis.
9.           If the operative recording system is not functioning properly, do inform manager-QC and put out of order Label.
10.        Once the printer is corrected, a comment would be pen up on the printout of the gap period.
11.        Inform to Engineering Department for Corrections and set down the status label of Under Maintenance.
12.        Report any inconsistency observed during operation or temperature tracking to Manager-QC.

13.        Keep up the record of incubator usage as per Annexure I.
14.        If the online printer is not functioning satisfactorily pervades the temperature record as per Annexure-II.   

Incubator. It is a device in which the maturation method is done which conditions a compound to a prearranged temperature as it maintains and provides all artificial optimal conditions for the growth of the microbial culture.

Bacteriological incubator: It is used mostly in laboratory Instruments mainly for the growth of bacteria. It has a heater that supports a constant temperature set as per requirement. Correct temperature can be visible on thermometer fix up on incubator. Most of the incubators are programmable which do not want error and trial temperature settings.

Principle of the incubator: It depends on the concept of thermo-electricity. The germination has a thermostat that supports a constant temperature by developing a thermal gradient. When any electrode is subjected to a thermal gradient, it gives rise to voltage familiar as the thermo-electric effect.
