Carbon dioxide incubators Powered with Euroclone technology

The new CO2 incubator has been designed to provide a stable and convenient environment for cell and tissue culture, keeping in mind providing the optimal needs of cell biologists.

At the very heart of the CO2 Incubator is the large internal capacity of 188.6 litres, corresponding to an actual available space of 140 litres, unmatched in the industry, thanks to a specially designed rack and 4 shelves system that provides a usable surface of 0.23 sqm per shelf.

The accurate and precise temperature is maintained by means of 4 independently controlled and validated “Direct Heating” elements, located on all 6 sides of the chamber, able to measure and control temperature down to 0.1 degree of the set value. Precise CO2 percentage is maintained by a state-of-the-art IR sensor and controller system, that is independent from the humidity of the culturing environment. Humidity is passively maintained at 95% , thanks to a 2.5 litres stainless steel humidity tray, heated by the base heater. Finally, the unit has a built-in “on-demand” decontamination cycle programme, for absolute safety.

√ Programmable audio-visual alarm, warning “parameter out of range”. Autoreset after chamber condition recovery

√ Large 2 x 24 message centre, with alpha numeric display for setup and status information

√ Temperature display in steps of 0.1°C

√ Mode key to enter programmable parameters

√ Scroll keys for selection of the parameters

√ CO2 display in steps 2 of 0.1%
