Standard low temperature incubators are intended for Biological Oxygen Demand (B.O.D.) applications. B.O.D. incubators are designed for wastewater treatment, not Drosophila culture. B.O.D. testing can tolerate the temperature fluctuations associated with defrost cycling to prevent freezing coils. Fruit Flies cannot tolerate these temperature spikes.

The Superfly Drosophila specific incubator functions within the range of temperatures preferred by fruit flies. Rather than striving to maintain a distinct set point within 0.25°C, the incubator gently fluctuates between 17°C and 19°C.
