Visit for Information on the Corona-virus disease (COVID-19) Pandemic.
If you do not understand these 3 words, google them: symptom, symptomatic and asymptomatic. Some of us were ignorant at Clarkson but not anymore.

How many young people under the age of 18 have died while having the Corona Virus in the state of California in the USA with a population of 39.5 million?
CDPH shows 104 as of May 9, 2023. This is 0.0002% of the California population. Have a health problem or over 80, yes it is dangerous but so is the Flu and Pneumonia.
Sweden with 10 million people never had any mask mandate and had the same results as the state of California! - - References: CDPH , Flu and Sweden

The completely solid-state EchoTherm IC20 Digital Electronic Chilling/Heating Dry Bath is compact, versatile, reliable and easy to use.

The chilling/heating surface is a 2.875” (7.3 cm) x 4.375” (11.1 cm) aluminum plate that is very flat for optimal contact with your sample. When unloaded, the plate surface will reach below 0°C in under two minutes. It will also heat to 37°C in approximately 3 minutes. This rate of chilling or heating may vary with the load on the plate. For instance, temperatures down to 4.0°C can be reached on a solid aluminum block as large as 4” (10.2 cm) x 3” (7.6 cm) x 6” (15.2 cm) in less than one hour. When insulated, these large blocks can be driven below 0°C. Temperature gradients from the center to the edge of any aluminum block mentioned will be less than 0.5°C at any temperature.

A sample cover is available for 96-well assay plates and aluminum blocks that will hold centrifuge tubes or other samples. These blocks are available as accessories.

Optional Models

  • XT Model: Chilling range expanded to -20°C without sample block. Recommended for holding samples at low temperatures without cycling.
  • XR Model: Dual Peltier modules for extra power, faster speeds between temperatures and expanded heating to 110°C without sample block. Recommended for larger loads and for cycling temperatures up and down.
