A Growing Interest in Asia-Pacific for HACCP Systems


HACCP, or Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point, was first developed in the United States during the late 1960s. NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) partnered with the United States Army Laboratories and The Pillsbury Company to develop a food safety management system for space missions.
The foundational Critical Control Points (CCP) guidelines were based off a similar system used to engineer and test weapons by identifying and eliminating potential system failures or areas of risk. Following NASA’s success, HACCP systems have had a positive impact on various food industries, such as manufacturing, agriculture, seafood, retail, and much more. This article will briefly cover the definition and purpose of HACCP, as well as the benefits of this food safety management system to food businesses in Japan and other APAC countries.

MIR Cooled Incubators


PHCbi’s refrigerated incubators provide a variety of temperatures and lighting patterns. The MIR cooled incubators combine an ambient temperature control range of -10℃ to 60℃ with an environmentally conscious design that consists of an intuitive new LCD display and programmable settings of temperature, light, and timer. With an improved and built-in user-operation for repetitive experimentation, you can expect high-precision temperature control for accurate results and stable cell production.

Programmable Operation with New LCD Display

Combining flexible Temperature, Light ON/OFF, Time control, a maximum 12-step plus constant operation or 12-step repeating operation can be programmed per your various experiment requests. The new MIR also offers the choice of timer mode, 24-hour Clock mode and Timer mode. Up to 10 programs can be stored for convenient retrieval and set-up of frequently run experiments. Individual programs can be combined using the Join function. Constant operation mode without step operation is also available.


MIR Heated Incubators


Heated incubators provide a precise and stable incubation environment. The MIR Heated Incubators combines an ambient temperature control range of 5℃ to 80℃ with a user-friendly design consisting of Microprocessor PID control / Air jacket system and durable stainless steel interior cabinet.
