BP110 Laboratory Grade Microwave

A basic laboratory microwave from Microwave Research and Applications for staining microscope tissue samples, waste solids testing, moisture testing, chemical processing, agar heating and other laboratory processing.

BP110 Lab Microwave

Price: $3,511


The BP-110 is a laboratory grade microwave with time and power based controls much like a domestic microwave oven that many laboratories use every day. It produces up to 1,000 watts of microwave power, the most common power level of domestic microwaves sold today meaning you should be able to use your existing protocol. The microwave has a powered cavity ventilation system that can be connected into the house air handling system or to an approved laboratory air handling system.

Suggested uses include staining of microscope samples, drying slides, preparation of agar, heating laboratory materials. This laboratory microwave is intended to replace the domestic microwave ovens often used in the laboratory. It has been used for solids testing (TSS and “cake” solids wastewater testing), moisture content testing and for sample preparation for chemical analysis.


 BP-110 features

  • Operates just as a domestic microwave oven using time and power level
  • 120 volt operation, 15 ampere – needs no special wiring (230 VAC 50 Hertz input available)
  • Up to 1,000 watts of microwave power
  • High volume cooling for long life
  • 5 different power levels plus a hold feature
  • Simple to use touch control pad
  • Bottom feed microwave using mode stirrer technology for even heating
  • Up to twenty multistage programs can be stored for your most popular protocol
