CO2 Incubator

MCO-50AIC-PE IncuSafe CO2 Incubator

Effective capacity
Temperature range
+5℃ above ambient to 50℃


Optimising cell culture outcomes and reproducibility

The MCO-50AIC-PE CO2 Incubator provide precise control of CO2 concentration and accurate, uniform, and highly responsive temperature control within the chamber. During cell culturing, contamination is prevented by germicidal interior and optional UV lamp. During cel culturing the inCu-saFe germicidal interior and SafeCell UV lamp work continuously to prevent contamination.

Precise & Regulated Environment

InCu-saFe and SafeCell UV both function to prevent contamination. The Direct Heat and Air Jacket System regulates the temperature whilst the Dual IR sensor controls the CO2 level.

SafeCell UV lamp

The programmable ultraviolet lamp, isolated from cell cultures, eliminates contaminants in the air-flow and water-pan without affecting cell cultures. SafeCell UV inhibits the growth of mycoplasma, bacteria, molds, spores, yeasts and fungi without costly HEPA filters that accumulate contaminants in the chamber air.

Precise Control & Intelligent Monitoring

An OLED alphanumeric keypad allows convenient but secure user control. It can display interna conditions, such as CO2 level and temperature. Transfer of data is easy via a USB port.

Appearance and specifications are subject to change without notice.

1) External dimensions of main cabinet only, excluding handle and other external projections.
2) When set temperature is 37°C, ambient temperature must be 32°C or less. Regardless of ambient temperature, the maximum of temperature control range is always 50°C.
3) The measurement condition complies with PHCbi specified measuring method.
4) Nominal value.

  • The optimum performance may not be obtained if the ambient temperature is not above 15°C.
  • Ambient temperature: 23°C, setting: 37°C, CO2: 5 %, no load
  • MCO-50AIC-PE + UV requires MCO-170UVS-PE UV system set
  • MCO-50AIC-PE requires MCO-50HB-PE, MCO-170EL-PW, MCO-50HP-PW and SafeCell UV option for H2O2 decontamination
