Duo-Therm™ Oven OV5
Bottle incubation covering the whole range of hybridisation methods
Safe containment
Reduced consumption of hybridisation solution
Ambient +10°C to 85°C
Accessories included: 4 borosilicate bottles, 5 meshes
Shaking platform for prehybridisation
Two incubation chambers

The Biometra hybridisation oven OV5 utilises a heavy duty rotisserie for a variety of different glass bottles. Employing so-called “bottle-angling” a continuous flow of buffer across the complete surface of the hybridisation membranes is generated and the volume necessary for hybridisation can be decreased significantly.

Ease of handling
The inside diameters of bottle necks and bodies have the same size, allowing membranes to be easily inserted and removed. Bubble formation and leaking of hybridisation bags is avoided. Nylon separation meshes permit each borosilicate bottle to accommodate several membranes simultaneously. Or large, overlapping membranes can be used.

Metal-framed, double glass doors allow easy visualization of what is inside the oven. Additionally, the user is safely protected from low energy radiation like β emission. The stainless steel drip tray safely contains spills that may occur, permitting far easier clean-up than would be the case with contaminated water baths.
  Shaking platform
For all users performing hybridisation or other temperature-controlled incubations on a plane surface the oven OV5 contains a shaking platform. The speed of the platform can be varied according to the different incubation protocols and needs.

Two ovens in one

The Duo-Therm™ Oven OV5 combines a classic rotisserie oven with a rotisserie/shaking oven. Both ovens function as separate, independent units. This unique workstation format lends itself to a wide variety of applications, for example:
- users can conduct hybridisations in the upper unit while solutions are being warmed in the
lower chamber
- by removing the rotisseries, in situ hybridisations can be carried out in the upper oven as
gels are being destained within a tray on the lower shaking platform
- high throughput: using both rotisseries, two different sets of hybridisations (using totally
different temperatures) can be conducted simultaneously.

The OV5 accomplishes all this within a compact format and a small footprint.
