Optimising cell culture outcomes and reproducibility

PHCbi CO2 Incubators provide precise control of CO2 concentration and accurate, uniform, and highly responsive temperature control within the chamber. During cell culturing, the inCu-saFe germicidal interior and optional SafeCell UV lamp continuously work to prevent contamination.

Easier to Use & Clean

We have designed our incubators with ease of use and efficiency in mind. By delivering a user friendly cell culture incubator with rapid systems and processes, PHCbi can help make your work as simple as possible. The slide-out perforated stainless steel shelves rest securely in integrated shelf channels molded into the left and right sidewalls, eliminating the need for troublesome shelf brackets and clips. Molded shelf channels reduce the amount of interior parts by up to 80%. Perforated shelves promote natural temperature and gas uniformity.

Unified Graphic Controller

A central intuitive control panel with graphic user interface simplifies operation and improves visibility of key performance parameters. An OLED input/output display creates an ergonomicallyfriendly selection of all functions including temperature and CO2 setpoints and alarm deviation limits for temperature and CO2. A USB data port permits download of logged performance and event information.

Elimination of Condensation & Contamination risk

The innovative Peltier powered dew stick located in the interior chamber draws condensation away from the inner door, outer door and inside inCu-saFe copper-enriched stainless steel surfaces. The dew stick returns moisture to the humidity reservoir and halts contamination before it can destroy cell cultures. Interior temperature control and uniformity are not affected.
