Our Drosophila chambers are designed with a special phenolic coating to protect chamber components from the acidic environment of rearing fruit flies. Additionally, the additive humidity feature maintains the perfect level of moisture for fruit flies to thrive.
“The near-perfect temperature, humidity and light cycles offered by Percival incubators have been essential for [studying Drosophila as a model system for understanding the impact of toxic heavy metal exposure on human health], particularly for difficult-to-measure behavioral traits. We have now conducted screens for dozens of traits in our Percival incubators.”
Stuart Macdonald, Ph.D. Professor and associate chair of the Department of Molecular Biosciences at the University of Kansas
New IncuWhite® LED Lighting
Compared to fluorescent lighting, the benefits of IncuWhite make our best-selling, reliable incubator an even more valuable investment:
• Increased shelf space and growing height due to streamlined design • Significantly longer light lifetime • Higher light intensity • More closely matches natural light • Flicker-free and dimmable in one-percent increments • More resistant to dust and water • Lower energy use
Shortened Delivery Time for Our Most Popular Line of Incubators
We know you need your equipment sooner, so we’ve dedicated a portion of our workforce to significantly reducing the time it takes to produce and ship our most popular incubator models—the I-36 line, including Drosophila.*
This is simply an adjustment to our work process to speed up delivery time for high-priority products. Our use of dependable materials and components and our high standards for quality control remain the same.
* Availability will depend on the level of demand and supply constraints.
A Reputation That Speaks for Itself
Our incubators keep selling themselves. We often hear from customers who want a Percival incubator after using older models that still work as well as the first day they were plugged in. Doctoral students, impressed with the accurate, reliable performance of our incubators in their university labs, many times become customers when they start their own labs and want the most value for their investment. Known for their precise control of lighting, temperature and humidity, Percival incubators can last for decades with very little maintenance.
