A German manufacturer will use vapor chamber assemblies as part of its thermal cycler product line for biomedical research applications.

Under a two-year supply agreement, ACT will assemble the vapor chambers under Inheco Industrial Heating & Cooling GmbH’s VCM Technology brand and intellectual property. The thermal cyclers take benefit from the fast heat-spreading capability of vapor chambers, which provides the unit with precise temperature uniformity through passive, two-phase heat transfer.

ACT and Inheco have worked together for several years to develop the technology. Inheco has progressed to launching the products and the technology commercially.
