Applications

Case studies

Let us take you into the fascinating world of Memmert appliances, which we have collected on our user platform  AtmoSAFE. From turbo drying of vast amounts of powder in the vacuum drying oven to artificial ageing of cables in the heating oven to climate testing of electronic devices in the climate oven.

Precise controlled atmosphere

For many years, the innovative Nuremberg company S+S Regeltechnik has been one of the German manufacturers who have been setting the pace in the development of sensor technology. The precise adjustment of sensors for temperature and humidity measurements and for the humidification of the sensor elements at...

High-tech lifesaver made of PUR and silicone

Precision in the micrometre range, 100 % reliability. In the production of artificial hearts by Berlin Heart, the highest standards of quality apply for all processes. The modules for the ventricular assist device EXCOR® are dried in a Memmert drying oven and vacuum oven.

Incubating caries bacteria in the cooled incubator

At required temperatures of 37 °C for incubation and similarly high room temperatures, most incubators come up short. But not the IPS cooled incubator, which cools down in a reliable and energy-saving manner due to its Peltier elements.

The incubator in the cell culture laboratory

In your eyes, what defines the ideal incubator for cell cultures? AtmoSAFE has talked to the head of the in vitro Institute for Molecular Biology, Prof. Dr. Gerhard Unteregger, about the requirements made of a CO2 incubator.

Powder and granulate

If vacuum ovens are applied to dry large amounts of powder and granulate, the occurring volume expansion of the heated atmosphere in the interior sets a physically defined end to the capability of the vacuum pump to transfer humidity.

Zebrafish do not like stress

Zebrafish are the secret heroes of genetics. This humble fish serves as a model organism in numerous research laboratories all around the world. At Ghent University, researchers breed them in large numbers in a Memmert constant climate chamber with light that is optimally suited as a fish incubator. In this low-vibration and low-noise environment, the zebrafish can develop without stress.

Storage of semen in the oven

Even in horse breeding, laboratory equipment is indispensable. In the laboratory of Ludo Philippaerts on the Dorperheide stud farm, the fresh semen of breeding stallions is stored in an oven at 37 °C.

Low temperature vacuum drying – gentle on bacteria and the environment

Freeze drying, the most common means of drying starter cultures and probiotics, is very energy-intensive. Furthermore, some bacterial strains do not survive the freezing process.

The history of technology: Temperature controllers

The history of microbiology and the development of associated methods starts with Robert Koch. Today, AtmoSAFE will take you on a journey from temperature control in gas-heated incubators to the invention and patentation of mechanical temperature control by Willi Memmert.

Ice cream meltdown

The perfect ice cream has a creamy consistency without water crystals and melts smoothly and slowly. Thanks to the Meltdown Analyzer TC 1 of the Swiss company Certa Fides GmbH, ice cream manufacturers can now exactly analyse and document the melting behavior of their different ice cream flavours.
