Incubators create ideal conditions for the growth of microbes and bacteria which can in turn be harmful to incubating eggs and can be the cause of embryonic death.

To reduce this risk Brinsea incorporate Biomaster Antimicrobial Protection into our incubator cabinets during manufacture. Biomaster Protection is embedded within the plastic itself which prevents the growth of harmful bacteria helping to provide the optimum environment for hatching.

Proven to quickly reduce bacterial growth by up to 99.99% Biomaster Protection is an effective means of reducing the risk of cross infection from MRSA, E.coli, Campylobacter, Legionella, Salmonella and many other harmful species of bacteria.

Biomaster helps to provide a more hygienic environment 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.

Benefits of Biomaster:

  • Reduces the risk of microbial transfer by cross contamination
  • Biomaster contains independently tested proven silver ion technology
  • Uses silver ion technology which is recognised as safe for eggs, chicks and humans
  • Up to 99.99% effective against bacteria and microbes
  • Odourless
  • Effective for the life of the product
  • Helps to prevent/reduce unpleasant odours


Our products incorporating Biomaster Protection have been tested to ISO 22196:2011 standards to prove its antimicrobial efficacy. Incubators and other products made with Biomaster still need cleaning thoroughly as the effect of Biomaster is at the plastic surface only.

Biomaster has been applied to the following products*:

  • Mini II Eco, Mini II Advance, Mini II EX incubators
  • Ovation 28 Eco, Ovation 28 Advance, Ovation 28 EX incubators
  • Ovation 56 Eco, Ovation 56 Advance, ovation 56 EX incubators

  • OvaView and OvaView High Intensity Candling Lamp
  • TLC-40 Eco and TLC-40 Advance Brooders, TLC-50 Eco and TLC-50 Advance Brooders

*Parts treated with Biomaster are all the opaque incubator and brooder mouldings as these are the most likely areas where cross contamination might occur.
