Lab Armor Beads are small, dry, metallic thermal beads designed to replace the water in laboratory water baths and ice in ice buckets

Stays Clean

Protected from Water-borne Contamination
Contaminated samples and reagents result in distorted data and unpredictable outcomes. Reduce the risk of contamination, achieve reproducible results and have greater confidence in your work.

Stays Organized

No More Water Accidents
Unlike water baths that require racks, floats, and bottleneck weights, Bead Bath naturally holds things in place without accessories. So no more floating accidents. Really.

Saves Time

Always On and Ready to Use
Bead Bath makes using the bath easy. The bath always stays on, so you don’t have to plan around warmup times. You don’t need to worry about burnout either because there is no water to evaporate.


Lab Armor has the Environment in Mind
The highly recyclable beads, fewer harmful biocides, and more energy efficient Bead Bath has the lab and the environment in mind.
