CO2 Incubators

MCO-18AC CO2 Incubator

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


The high-performance solution for mainstream applications

The IncuSafe MCO-18AC CO2 Incubator was developed utilizing advanced technology for unprecedented temperature and CO2 control. Chamber conditions are accurately maintained by the Microprocessor P.I.D controller. The DHA Direct Heat & Air Jacket was designed to surpass the performance of the traditional water jacket and eliminates the inconveniences of using water. Start-up simple and easy with the automatic set-up function.

Copper-enriched Stainless Steel Kills Mycoplasma

PHCbi is proud to announce that InCu saFe, the copper-enriched stainless steel used in the interior of its CO2 and O2/CO2 incubators, kills mycoplasma. Mycoplasma is one of the most common causes of contamination found in cell culture and the source can often be traced back to contaminated laboratory apparatus. The inCu-saFe walls and shelves inside IncuSafe CO2 and O2/CO2 Incubators eliminate mycoplasma and significantly reduce the risk of contamination without emptying the incubator.

PHC Europe B.V. also offers one other size of the same type IncuSafe CO2 Incubator:
