Egg incubators create the ideal conditions for the growth of microbes and bacteria that can in turn be harmful to incubating eggs and can cause embryonic death.
To reduce this risk Brinsea have incorporated Biomaster antimicrobial additives into the incubator cabinets during manufacture. Biomaster is embedded within the plastic itself preventing the growth of bacteria and helping to provide the optimum environment for hatching.
‘It’s very frustrating when eggs develop but fail to hatch, often for no apparent reason. We estimate 25% of these could be due to bacterial contamination and the use of Biomaster antimicrobial additives in our plastics will help reduce this problem and lead to higher hatch rates’ Ian Pearce, Managing Director.
Ian continues, “Biomaster provides an added level of protection for your eggs during incubation. From January 2013 Biomaster has been utilised as widely as technically as possible within our products – providing you with additional confidence in your hatch”.
Adding Biomaster into the Brinsea range of incubators is a very effective way to combat the growth of microbes on the product, comments Paul Morris Managing Director of Addmaster, who produce the Biomaster additive. “Its action against such a wide range of bacteria such as Campylobacter, Salmonella and Legionella makes it the ideal product to provide the hygienic protection required for the incubator”.
