MARKETING COPY FOR LAB ARMOR® PRODUCTS8/7/2012Revive your lab!Labs are better waterless.No more ruined experiments. Lost materials. Hassles. Not to mention distorted data.Lab Armor® BeadsTMLab Armor® Beads are eco-friendly and low-maintenance metallic beads that replacewater in existing water baths, aluminum blocks in dry baths and even ice in ice buckets.The innovative Lab Armor Beads can also be used in containers placed in ovens andincubators to replace sample racks.Saves Time & MoneyUsing Beads makes lab experiments easy. No more hassles with emptying, cleaning,and refilling water baths. The bath always stays on, so you dont have to plan aroundwarm-up times. Use Beads in ice buckets and save trips to the ice machine. And nomore floating samples.Stays CleanUnlike water baths and ice machines that promote harmful microbial growth, Beadskeep things dry and unfriendly to microbes. So there is less to clean and less to worryabout. The result is more successful experiments and less laboratory downtime.Stays OrganizedBeads hold things in place without accessories. So no more accidents from float-awayvessels. In fact, Beads aren’t limited to capped, watertight vessels. Imagine using petridishes and 96-well plates right in a Bead Bath. No water. No problem.Eco-friendlyBeads can transform a water bath into a greener instrument. Bead don’t require the useof harmful germicides to keep clean, they use less electricity because the Beads don’tevaporate, and the Beads are completely recyclable.Lab Armor® Bead BathTMAll of the built-in features on Bead BathTM were designed from the ground up to takeadvantage of Lab Armor Beads and the advanced capabilities of the Bead Bath. Itdelivers exceptional temperature uniformity and gets up and running faster. So you cando things with this bath that you cant do with your old water bath. Vessels that can beused with Bead Bath aren’t limited to water-tight containers. So you can safely incubatemulti-well plates, petri dishes, and open-top samples at any angle.Thermal Uniformity:At 37ºC +/- 1.0ºC
Temperature Range:Ambient +5°C to 80°CAccepts and supports any size and shape vesselCleans with mild soap, water and 70% ethanol solutionWalkabout™ TrayIt’s a quarter the size of a traditional lab bucket. Making it easy to use under the hood orin tight benchtop spaces. With its superior insulative properties, it keeps your samplesand reagents at temperature after removing them from the Bead Bath, Chill Bucket, orthe refrigerator. It lets you feel good about taking your time under the hood.Chill Bucket™The Chill Bucket is a revolutionary laboratory ice bucket that works without ice. It chillswhile keeping everything dry and in place, so you no longer have to worry about waterymeltdowns or losing track of your samples. It substitutes for an ice bucket and maintainstemperatures of -20 ºC to 8 ºC for up to 8 hrs.StayTemp™ TraysBeads can help reduce sample temperature fluctuations in your air-filled lab equipment.In your refrigerator. In your incubator. In your oven. Never mind about racks.They don’t protect your samples. With the new stainless StayTemp Equipment Trays,you can place your vessels into warm or cold beads and always find them at the perfecttemperature.Bead Block™Lab Armor Beads are a convenient thermal media that replaces the drilled-outaluminum blocks in your dry bath. The highly conductive Beads eliminate the need forusing different size blocks to fit different sample vessels.ADDITIONAL COPY FROM LAB ARMOR BEAD BATH FLYERLab Armor BeadsScientist’s Choice Awards 2009Select ScienceNo more ...Microbial contaminationCleaning & refillingRuined experimentsLost materialsDistorted dataThermal Uniformity:

So you cando things with this bath that you cant do with your old water bath.Baths are better waterless.TMThe new Bead BathA waterless eco-friendly revolution.Built only for Beads, Bead Bath does things no laboratory water bath could.Green ReportBead Bath is a smarter laboratory bath that stays dry and uses up to 4X less electricitythan a standard water bath. As a water bath evaporates, it cools and must be re-heatedfrequently. Since Bead Bath is waterless, the bath stays warm longer and thereforepowers up less often using less energy. And waterless also means Bead Bath is notfriendly to contaminating microbes, so there is no need for constant biocide use. BeadBath just stays dry, clean, and at temperature. All the time.Always on.Bead Bath makes using the bath easy. It always stays on, so you dont have to planaround warm-up times. You dont need to worry about burnout either, because there isno water to evaporate.Stays organized.Unlike water baths that require racks, floats, and bottleneck weights, Bead Bathnaturally holds things in place without accessories. So no more bobbing for tubes.
Stays clean & filled.Water baths must be routinely monitored, cleaned, refilled, and maintained. While it’s agood idea to keep an eye on Bead Bath, it really doesnt need too much attention.Maybe an occasional glance.Any type vessel.Vessels that can be used with Bead Bath aren’t limited to water-tight containers. So youcan safely incubate multi-well plates, petri dishes, and open-top samples at any angle.
