In many laboratories, the incubator is used to maintain air and temperature at levels appropriate for the care of biological or chemical material. These incubators maintain a constant temperature in a specific range such as oxygen, nitrogen, carbon dioxide, water vapor and other gases found in the air. This is essential for housing living materials in a stable environment. 

The four main factors are oxygen balance, relative humidity, temperature, and pressure. These four factors play a vital role in maintaining a stable environment in the incubator.

(Working incubator)

The laboratory incubator is easy to use. Once connected to the power source, only the temperature required by the microorganism to be cultivated must be fixed and the culture medium is introduced into it for the necessary time. It is usually worked at temperatures between 60 and 65 °C. A temperature of 37 °C is usually used to grow bacteria, as they can develop naturally under these conditions.
Incubators have several applications in the laboratory. From experimental work in molecular biology and cell biology, to the diagnosis of diseases carried out in microbiological clinical laboratories. In addition, they are used in the poultry industry to act as substitutes for chickens in the hatching process of eggs.
