Desert Chamber Pro™

Slide Drying Oven


This innovative oven from Biocare Medical is extremely efficient and is specifically designed for rapid drying of slides. The combination of a small footprint, turbo fan, 365-watt element, digital timer and a digital temperature process controller makes this oven unique compared to conventional drying ovens. The digital temperature process controller automatically calibrates for the amount of mass and volume placed inside the oven, keeping the inside temperature constant. The Desert Chamber Pro has a slide capacity of over 750 slides and operates within a temperature range of 25º to 100ºC.

Use pre-configured time/temperature programs or create your own. The turbo-action drying oven is extremely efficient for bulk drying, especially with today’s aggressive HIER methods for immunohistochemistry. The turbo fan quickly removes excess moisture between the tissue and glass slide. The Desert Chamber Pro can be programmed with variable segments, times, temperatures and buzzers. Fast and efficient slide drying methods are especially useful for immunohistochemistry, H&E, special stains and in situ hybridization.
