MCO-170M Multi gas Incubators provide the most stable environment for your cell culturing

Our NEW PHCbi MCO-170M multi gas incubators...

..optimize mammalian cell cultures through variable O2 control to simulate in vivo conditions for regenerative medicine and stem cell applications.

The MCO-170M multi-gas incubator helps to achieve more accurate results when culturing cells at physiological oxygen levels.

The Dual IR sensor provides precise regulation of the CO2 levels and the solid state Zirconia sensor makes sure you have the most precise regulation of the O2.

Not only providing the most stable environment for your cell culturing but also guaranteeing precise and accurate conditions resulting in reproducible results time and time again.

The MCO-170M multi gas incubator is also ideal for cell culturing under hypoxic conditions and is therefore ideally suited for mammalian tissue research applications, cellular therapy, stem cell research, pathophysiological studies and pharmaceutical production processes.

The MCO-170M multi gas incubator is available in three models:

Understanding Biological Oxygen Levels

In today’s life science research sector, there are a variety of ways to grow, or “culture” cells. Depending on the organism or cell of interest, different incubation parameters are required for cell cultivation.

Mammalian cell culture, a method of growing a particular tissue type out of its natural environment (or in vitro), has been an extremely valuable tool for the progress of science and medicine.

The NEW MCO-170M Multi Gas incubators offer:
Consistent & Uniform Enviroment
Direct Heat & Air Jacket System

Regulates temperature through 3 independent heating zones under microprocessor PID* control. The fan’s gentle circulation enhances uniformity within the chamber.

Rapid CO2 Recovery

The PID control and Dual Infra Red sensor achieves ultra-fast CO2 recovery without overshoot, even following multiple door openings.

Condensation Management

With a unique antibacterial coating, the 'dew stick' —controlled by Peltier technology— attracts condensed water to its surface, which then drips into the humidifying pan, preventing unwanted condensation in the chamber and possible contamination.

Ultimate control

A new full colour LCD touch screen gives clear information of incubator status (chamber temperature, CO2 and O2 levels, door open status and alarms) with easy access to controller functions for fast, convenient set-up.

A graphical chart display allows users to quickly review incubator performance and a standard USB port allows laboratories to optimise cell culture protocols and adhere to standard operating procedures by conveniently transferring logged data to a USB stick.

In addition, the unique incubator ID allows registration of multiple units at one site without confusion.

USB Data Storage and Transfer

The standard USB port allows for convenient transfer of log data from a USB memory stick to a computer. Data is logged for approximately 1.5 months, using 2-minute interval. (Settable range: 2~30 min.)

And there is more..

Sensitive Cell Culturing

Culturing cells at physiological oxygen levels allows them to grow faster, live longer, and experience fewer mutations.

Zirconia O2 Sensor

The unique solid Zirconia O2 sensor delivers precise control of physiological oxygen levels to simulate in vivo conditions.

Germicidal Interior

InCu-saFe® copper-enriched stainless steel alloy offers the germicidal properties of copper, as well as the corrosion resistance of stainless steel.

Proactive Contamination Control

Isolated UV lamp decontaminates circulating air and the water in the humidifying pan without without harming cultured cells

H2O2 Decontamination

PHCbi’s unique high-speed decontamination system uses vaporized H2O2, offering time-saving and documented chamber decontamination with complete safety.
