What are the disadvantages of using a Laboratory Incubator?

An incubator is a chamber used to maintain optimal conditions for industrial or scientific processes. Temperature and humidity within an incubator are carefully monitored and regulated to create a suitable environment for incubation, bacterial cultures, or tissue samples.

Many of the industrial incubators used today are large enough to house people, while others are dressing room-sized. Some are so small that they can fit on a lab table.

The characteristics and size of an incubator will vary according to its intended use. For example, incubators used for mass production of vaccines or antibiotics will be different from those used for incubating eggs in a chicken incubator.


The main disadvantage of using an incubator is the cost, they can vary in price from a few hundred dollars to several thousand dollars, depending on the characteristics and size. But at Kalstein we offer you the best prices in the market. In addition, because of their multiple functions, the laboratories can count on the best models and the best technology that we can offer.

On the other hand, another disadvantage of using an incubator is the risk of contamination, but if it is not properly sterilized, it can be a breeding ground for bacteria and other microorganisms. So they require good constant maintenance. If they are not given due care, they may stop working properly or, worse, cause serious damage.

Finally, incubators can be quite delicate and sensitive equipment. If not handled with care, they can be easily damaged.

Maintenance of Incubators

In industrial process and manufacturing applications, incubators are large machines or devices used to maintain optimal conditions for laboratory samples to grow and develop.

Most have temperature and humidity controls to maintain proper growing conditions. Some types of incubators also have atmospheric controls, such as COโ‚‚ levels, to ensure the right conditions for optimal growth. Incubators should be cleaned and calibrated periodically to ensure their proper functioning and to provide the correct conditions for their function.

It is important to follow the manufacturer’s instructions to operate and maintain the equipment suitable for any practice and regular cleaning and maintenance of the machine will extend its life and ensure optimal performance.
