An incubator is a device that maintains and regulates the temperature, ventilation and humidity. It is used in poultry industry to act as a substitute for hens, development of micro-organisms and to keep pre-mature babies. An incubator is generally made up of three things. These comprises of thick stainless steel sheet of SS-304 grade, insulation materials like fans, nuts, motors and glass wool that ensures the highest thermal efficiency and electronic materials such as indirect heating system, temperature range system to control and regulate the temperature and an analog on/off switch.

Incubators maintain the most favorable temperature and humidity level as well as several other conditions like C02 and oxygen content. They are available for different purposes. Laboratory incubators are used by the doctors to detect bacterial infection in human body. The entire process is done by attaining a sample of a body’s fluid and then transferring it to a disinfected dish or a container and putting it inside the laboratory incubator. Air is set as per the body temperature to ensure pathogenic growth. Adding on, the Lab Incubator also offers sufficient amount of nitrogen, which is needed to promote cell growth. This setting allocates the micro-organisms to multiply that facilitate the doctors to discover the explicit type of bacteria.

Lab incubators are even used for tissue culture. Tissue culture is the growth of tissues or cells separated from the organism. It is a process of drawing out tissue parts from animals. The sample is positioned inside the incubator and the temperature is regulated and maintained as per the desired conditions. By observing, how the tissue gets fragmented scientists detect the operation and interaction of cells. And this movement of cells gives a valuable sight to the scientists how cancer cells behave leading to several research and development of vaccines for illness like measles, polio and influenza. The use of these incubators has been of great help to the scientists for identifying disorders caused by the lack of certain enzymes.

These incubators are also used for genetic engineering. Genetic engineering is an extended form of tissue culture. It is the unswerving human manipulation of organism’s genome that uses DNA modern technology. Genetic engineering techniques are useful in several fields such as research, bio-technology, and medicines. With the help of these incubators, genetic engineering can also be used to improve the content of food plants such as fruits and vegetables.
