- Digital temperature control
- Hinged lid improves uniformity and conserves energy
- External(optional)temperature probe measures actual sample temperature
Benchmark Scientific's BSH5001-E myBlock series is a "next generation" product line that introduces several major advantages over traditional dry baths. They are the first digital dry baths to include advanced microprocessor controls, timed or continuous operation and a removable hinged lid. In addition, an optional external temperature feedback probe can be positioned directly inside a sample tube, providing real-time control and monitoring of actual sample temperature. The BSH-5001-E MyBlock's transparent lid helps to promote better uniformity and minimize temperature stratification in the block by maintaining a warm air jacket layer. The BSH 5001 E also helps to reduce energy consumption by minimizing heat loss to the environment. The hinged lid can be flipped open (to the rear), or easily removed (lifted off) to accommodate taller tubes. The single block models can be ordered in a configuration that includes our unique Quick-Flip blocks. These universal blocks accept tubes from 0.5 to 2.0ml and, with just a quick flip to the other side, accommodate 0.2ml tubes, PCR strips or (in the dual block model only) a PCR plate. Other blocks are available for tubes up to 50ml.
