Laboratory Water Bath

A water bath is a piece of laboratory equipment that is designed with a container filled with hot water. This equipment is used to incubate samples in water at a constant temperature for a long period of time. Among its uses we have the heating of reagents, fusion of substrates or incubation of cell cultures. It is also used to carry out certain chemical reactions that occur at high temperatures. The preferred water bath in laboratories is a heat source to warm flammable chemicals rather than an open flame to prevent contact. Different types of water baths are used depending on the application and all water baths can be used up to 99Β°C. When the temperature is above 100 Β°C, there are other alternative methods such as oil bath.

Tissue water bath

Water baths are a very common element in any type of microbiological laboratory. This type of equipment is a container that is capable of holding hot water to incubate samples in water at a constant temperature for a long period of time.

Water baths generally have an interface that allows the user to set the correct temperature to achieve the desired results.

There are some essential steps in a histology laboratory. The sectioning process is one of the most important as this procedure has to be very precise and the blocks you are cutting must not break in any way. When the cutting process begins, the first thing to do is to cool the paraffin blocks to make the correct cut.

The blocks are then placed in the bath and programmed at the desired temperature...

Recommendations for the use of the water bath in the laboratory

Before starting to use the water bath, it should be checked that it is clean and that the accessories to be used are installed. And then, normally proceed with the following steps:

Fill the bath with the water that will be used to keep the temperature uniform.

Verify that, once the containers to be heated have been placed, their level is between 4 and 5 cm

Install control instruments, such as thermometers and stirrers, when these are required.

Check the position of the bulb of the thermometer or the thermal probe, to ensure that the readings are correct.

Put the main switch in the on position.

Dial the desired operating temperature.

Select the cut-off temperature, in those baths that have this control.

This is a safety control that cuts off the power supply if the selected temperature is exceeded.

You should avoid using the water bath with substances such as: bleach, liquids with a high chlorine content, weak salt solutions such as sodium chloride, calcium chloride or chromium compounds, strong concentrations of any acid, strong concentrations of any salt, and water deionized, as this causes corrosion and also perforations in stainless steel.
