Direct Heat System
The direct heat system achieves an accurate, uniform, and highly responsive temperature control within the chamber. It regulates temperature through three independent heating zones under microprocessor P.I.D control
The IR CO2 Sensor offers accurate and reliable CO2 measurement. The ceramic-based sensor is unaffected by moderate changes in temperature and relative humidity and is linked to the P.I.D. controller for fast recovery times.
Dual IR Sensor
The single beam, dual detector IR CO2 sensor offers continuous calibration for unprecedented control, accuracy and stability. The sensor simultaneously measures sample and reference wavelengths for continuous auto- zero calibration. The ceramic-based sensor is unaffected by moderate changes in temperature and relative humidity and is linked to the P.I.D. controller for fast recovery times.
Zirconia O2 Sensor
The unique, solid state zirconia O2 sensor delivers precise oxygen control. (1-18%; 22-80%), for physiological oxygen levels to simulate in vivo conditions.
InCu-saFe Germicidal Interior
The inCu-saFe copper-enriched stainless steel alloy interior offers the germicidal properties of copper, as well as the corrosion resistance of stainless steel.
SafeCell UV Lamp
The optional, isolated, SafeCell UV lamp decontaminates circulating air and water in the humidifying pan, without harming cultured cells.
The unique H2O2 decontamination system delivers fast and validatable decontamination. The system uses vaporised H2O2, which achieves at least a 6 log reduction of majorcontaminants. The full sterilisation process takes less than three hours.
Dual Heat Sterilisation
Dual heat sterilisation utilises the incubator’s two heaters during the 180°C sterilisation process, which takes 11 hours. There is no effect on temperature inside stacked incubators due to low heat dissipation so cell culturing can continue uninterrupted. No need to remove inner parts like the CO2 sensor and UV light, or recalibrate after sterilisation, therefore laboratory processes are more efficient with less incubator downtime.
The dry heat sterilisation cycle is controlled through the incubator microprocessor control system. The outer door is locked automatically upon initiation of the sterilisation cycle and unlocked upon completion.
