A laboratory water bath is an electronic heater that can maintain water at a predetermined temperature so that samples can be incubated, reagents warmed and substrates melted. Digital water baths have a temperature control and easy to read temperature gauge. The temperature protection system tracks the set temperature and controls the heater in the event of a fault, while a low level water sensor cuts the power to prevent the bath boiling dry. Heater elements are mounted underneath the tank to allow easy cleaning and there is a drain to empty the bath. The minimum set temperature is 25 degrees Celsius and, in this small desktop model, racks of test tubes can be heated up to 99.9 degrees Celsius.
