Fluctuations in temperature impact the metabolism of cells and affect various parameters including adhesion, protein expression and proliferation. Therefore cell cultures exposed to variable temperatures cannot be considered viable in regulated environments.
In IncuSafe incubators, temperature reliability is ensured using a patented Direct Heat and Air Jacket, which encloses the chamber in high density foam insulation. This system prevents condensation and protects against ambient temperature fluctuations and ‘cold-spots’. Gentle fan circulation maintains uniform heating, delivering regular temperatures to all cultures regardless of their placement.
