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 filter air scrubbers, which accumulate contaminants in the filter media. HEPA filters are also ineffective on particles less than 0.3 microns.
Versatile Program Cycles of SafeCell UV light for Optimum Usability
24 Hour UV Decontamination
This feature can be used in the following instances:
- Prior to 1st use
- Between patient protocols
- Following maintenance or service
- Secondary decontamination method
After H2O2 Vapourization
The UV lamp automatically cycles ON for up to 90 minutes following a 10-minute H2O2 vapour cycle. this reduces the H2O2 to water, which condenses onto a cooler section of the incubator’s interior floor for easy clean-up.
After Door Openings
Door closure causes UV lamp to turn On for 10 minutes, decontaminating the external air that entered the chamber.
