Basic research

04/19/2022

Researchers involved in basic research are curious: They want to trace the mechanisms that drive complex processes in nature, and do so in an unbiased, systematic and accurate way. They create the basis for new machines and procedures in all scientific disciplines. However, often the valuable contribution from the research institutions is only apparent in retrospect.

This also applies for basic medical research. Standard procedures that are well established today, such as heart surgery, would be impossible without the knowledge gathered over centuries of research into electricity and other topics. Basic research is a continuous process. Scientists around the world are working to improve the conditions for development of new medical therapies and medications.

Standard task in basic research: Temperature control application

Temperature control of samples, laboratory devices and cultures is a routine task in basic medical research laboratories. Precise compliance with the temperature range is a core requirement. After all, the temperature of the devices often has a direct effect on cell material.

A high level of temperature stability in the water baths eliminates unwanted temperature fluctuations. Devices for demanding applications can be counter-cooled for this purpose. Intuitively designed adjustment options ensure convenient and safe operation. Accessories such as test tube racks or shelves also contribute to this.

Depending on the application, circulators in a variety of designs can be used. These include heating immersion circulators and bath circulators, but also circulators that are suitable for temperature control of external applications. Basic research laboratories also often have increased requirements for the universal usability of their instruments. With a wide working temperature range and a variety of designs, JULABO instruments offer the necessary flexibility. The range of accessories allows adaptation to customer-specific applications.
