IoHeat

Project Summary

The aim of the project is to develop a remotely-controlled heated compartment, which will be kept in a cold environment. The device will be used in laboratories to control specific working temperature (37 °C) of cell culture medium or reagents, shortly before use. Specifically, the heating device will find application in the laboratories where microbiological or cell culture work are carried out. The function of incubator is to maintain optimal temperature, humidity and other conditions such as the CO (CO2) and oxygen content of the atmosphere inside. Incubators are essential for a lot of experimental work in cell biology, microbiology and molecular biology and are used to culture both bacterial as well as eukaryotic cells. With our mini-incubator we aim to achieve the proper functionality of an incubator, but with the time optimization improvement due to the remote controls of temperature.
