Cell Culture Equipment and Incubators


Cell-IQ™ and CytoGrow Incubators

Cell Culture Incubator Selection Chart
Cell-IQ and CytoGrow incubators are designed for precision, uniformity, and repeatability of in vitro conditions that replicate the in vivo environment. Take the first step to greater reproducibility by finding the right incubator for your decontamination and cell culturing needs.
The complete PHCbi CO2 and multigas (CO2/O2) incubator family includes two product lines designed for precision, uniformity and repeatability of conditions that replicate the in vivo environment.
Cell-IQ incubators use high-performance (IR) detectors to measure CO2 concentration, CytoGrow incubators use a thermal conducitivity sensor or infrared sensor, depending on model.
Biomedical Incubator Equipment for Cell Culture Needs
CO2 and multigas incubators from PHC include benchtop, stackable and reach-in models in a variety of sizes to meet a wide range of culture conditions, space needs and decontamination methods. Our incubators are ideal for a variety of applications, including:
  • Medical
  • Pharmaceutical
  • Biotech
  • Government research
  • Clinical
  • IVF processes (select models only)

Cell Culture Equipment that Guards Against Contamination

Standard Contamination Control
PHCbi cell culture incubators include both standard passive contamination control and a variety of active control methods. Passive decontamination is achieved as a background process in all incubator models through innovative inCu-saFe® interiors. PHC's inCu-saFe design feature is a copper enriched stainless steel alloy that combines the germicidal properties of elemental copper with the corrosion and discoloration resistance of stainless steel.
Optional Contamination Control
Available as a standard feature on select Cell-IQ and CytoGrow models, the active SafeCell™ UV lamp decontaminates chamber air and surfaces without compromising cultured cell viability. Additional active contamination control methods include a dry heat decontamination cycle on the new Cell-IQ Series Dry Heat Incubator or the vaporized hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) cycle, available on select Cell-IQ models.
Contamination Survival under SafeCell UV System
Designed with Purpose
PHCbi brand CO2 and multigas CO2/O2 incubators represent generations of successful product development in response to emerging cell culture protocols used around the world. Our incubators use innovative technology to fulfill a wide range of applications. Download our product brochure to learn more.
Conversion of O2 Ions to Electrical Current
Physiological oxygen plays a crucial role in mammalian tissue culture. An understanding of physiological oxygen has become increasingly critical in applications such as in vitro fertilization, stem cell research and cancer biology. Discover more about the role oxygen play in in vitro mammalian tissue cultures in the Application Note.
Make 3D culturing easier with PrimeSurface® ultra-low attachment cell culture well plates. Available in U, V, or spindle shapes, these high-clarity well plates allow optical or chemiluminescent imaging of spheroid cell cultures directly from the well plate, eliminating the risks and additional handling involved with sample transfer.
