Incubators and Growth Chambers

BINDER growth chambers create ideal conditions for cultures using homogeneous light in combination with constant temperature and humidity to achieve ideal growth in plants or other organisms. BINDER offers a variety of growth chambers with its KBW and KBWF series as well as the APT.line™ preheating chamber.


BINDER GmbH
Ambient temperature: plus 5 °C to +100 °C
Interior volumes: 28 to 720 liters

BINDER incubators are used for incubation of microbiological cultures and for conditioning of heat-sensitive media. They guarantee reproducible results in every routine test in the laboratory, also under high batch throughputs. The B series includes incubators with mechanical adjustment, while the BD series features units with natural convection. The BF series offers rapid temperature equalization with forced convection after the door has been opened. The Avantgarde.Line, with natural or forced convection, is the ideal solution to meeting growth and incubation requirements, offering exceptional efficiency and temperature accuracy.

BINDER GmbH
Ambient temperature: plus 7 °C to +60 °C
Humidity range: up to 95% RH
Interior volumes: 53 to 210 liters
Auto-sterilization with hot air at 180 °C

The BINDER Series CB and CB-S CO₂ incubators guarantee optimal, reproducible growth conditions for cell cultures. The new silicone-jacket heating system and Permadry technology eliminate the risk of condensation. With the 180 °C hot air sterilization, bacteria and spores can be reliably killed as necessary. The unique, seamless deep-drawn inner chamber without built-in obstructions allows for very simple cleaning. Other key features are the hot-air sterilizable CO₂ sensor with infrared technology to ensure stable pH values and the humidification system which guarantees a condensation-free interior.

Temperature range: 0 °C to +70 °C
Humidity range (Model KBWF): 10 % to 80 % RH
Interior volumes: 247 to 700 liters
3 positionable illumination cassettes, each with 5 fluorescent tubes

Binder’s KBW growth chambers create ideal conditions for the culture using homogeneous light in combination with constant temperature and humidity. The KBWF series also offers a system for humidity regulation. Different models are available and include features like humidity regulation with capacitive humidity sensor and vapor humidification, tightly-sealed inner door made of tempered safety glass and door heating. The APT.line™ preheating chamber, in connection with fast-reacting humidity regulation, highly effective cooling and uniform light distribution, ensures natural growth conditions. More information
