Safe Guidance for use of Laboratory Heating Blocks
8 December 2016

Heating blocks provide a safe, convenient and productive alternative to heating mantles and oil baths for heating round bottomed flasks, tubes and vials. Used in combination with a standard hotplate stirrer, heating blocks such as the Asynt DrySyn® Range have proved themselves with their ability to outperform the heat-conducting properties of oil baths. This best practice guide has been written to offer guidance for the safest way of using laboratory heating blocks.
