Dry Block Heaters


Numerous applications in life sciences require temperature control of samples, either for sample preparation or to induce a reaction. IKA offers a wide range of dry block heaters with interchangeable heating blocks.


The digital dry block heaters with precision heating blocks ensure highly accurate and reproducible results, guaranteeing short heating times. The bright, easy to read LED display facilitates very easy setting of the required temperature and accurate monitoring of the actual temperature. Excellent temperature uniformity and stability is ensured when working with IKA dry block heaters.

The PT 10000.60 temperature sensor made of stainless steel is included in the scope of delivery and enables continuous monitoring and control of the temperature in the sample vessels. The blocks are removed with a small tool, which is also part of the delivery.


IKA dry block heaters are highly versatile and each model can accept separate interchangeable modular heating blocks. They can carry various sample inserts like centrifuge tubes, test tubes, vials, microtiter plates and PCR tubes or strips. Each block has a thermometer well for measuring the block temperature. Anodized aluminum blocks provide superior temperature stability and heat transfer.


IKA dry block heaters are highly versatile and suitable for a broad range of applications in pharmaceutical, microbiological, biochemical and -medical laboratories:

  • DNA extractions
  • DNA analysis
  • Melting point determination
