Lab Armor beads can now be used with Grant Sub Aqua Pro and JB Nova Water Baths

Have you tried Lab Armor beads?

These smooth, thermally conductive metallic beads can be used in place of water in many water baths.

They offer a simple way to save on water consumption in the lab, avoid the risk of water borne contamination and save on cleaning.
