Techne’s New Range of Dri-block® Heaters Given a New Look and Increased Functionality

Enhanced levels of choice, flexibility and specification are offered.

With a fresh new look and a wide selection of instruments, users can now select two, three and four-block models for high throughput applications, as well as a twin control unit for more complex experiments. The new range offers updated electronics, a brighter, larger LED display, and an innovative count-down timer function with audible alarm, ensuring timely and precise heating of test-tubes, microcentrifuge tubes, cuvettes, microlitre plates and more.


Techne Dri-block® heaters have been providing laboratories with a safe, dry and precise temperature source for the last 50 years, and the latest models build on this legacy. Users are kept up to date with their experiments with an integrated timer, which can be set in 1 minute intervals (up to 99h 59m) and includes an audible end-of-run alarm. Safety of laboratory workers is paramount, and the aluminium and vented PPD outer casing remains cool to the touch even at the maximum operating temperatures of 100˚C and 200˚C (depending on model). The latest Dri-block® heaters also have a safety shut-off feature, which is temperature adjustable by the user on some models. Each model can accommodate the operator’s personal preference by displaying temperatures in ˚C or ˚F.


For high throughput applications, larger three and four-block models are available, while an additional twin control unit accommodates two blocks with independent digital temperature controls – ideal for multiple users or for applications where samples must be quickly transferred between two temperatures.


“Our new Dri-block® heaters offer users the latest design and technology, improved looks and greater functionality,” said Jim Bratherton, Techne Product Manager at Bibby Scientific. “However, they still retain the features that have made these units so popular over the last 50 years; the widest available range of aluminium block inserts, fast heat up rates to temperatures of 100˚C or 200˚C, and exceptional thermal accuracy and block uniformity - all supported by a market leading 3 year warranty.”
