Cell Culture Incubators Capabilities

As a crucial piece of laboratory equipment, PHCbi brand cell culture incubators are designed to ensure highly accurate, reproducible chamber conditions. Our cell culture incubators provide a contamination-free environment while allowing precise CO2 or CO2/O2 control - essential for in vivo environment replication.

Uniform Consistent Environment

The patented Direct Heat and Air Jacket system, IR2 sensor, SafeCell™ UV and inCu-saFe® work together to ensure precise temperature, CO2 levels and contamination control respectively for a precise and repeatable environment.

Rapid CO2 Recovery with IR2 Sensor

Proprietary IR2 sensor provides superior CO2 control with fast recovery without overshoot even following multiple door openings.

Time Saving Decontamination

An optional high speed decontamination system uses hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) vapor to clean the incubator chamber in under three hours. The system safely and efficiently decontaminates with a 100% kill rate with at least a six log reduction of major contaminants.

Contamination Control with SafeCell UV and InCu-saFe

The PHCbi inCu-saFe combines the germicidal properties of elemental copper with the corrosion and discoloration resistance of stainless steel to deliver passive contamination control throughout the chamber interior. The SafeCell UV lamp provides safe, active and passive contamination control of circulated air and the humidity water reservoir. SafeCell scrubs and decontaminates circulated chamber air without affecting cell cultures in situ.

Color LCD Display

The high contrast color LCD display allows for easy, touchscreen programming of temperature, CO2and other internal conditions of your incubator even with gloved hands.

USB Log Function for Data Transfer and Storage

A standard USB port simplifies the storage or transfer of logged data.





The Next Generation of Incubator Technology

Enhance the production yield of your cell culture experiments with PHCbi's large capacity CO2 incubator. Part of the Cell-IQ CO2 series, the MCO-230AICUVLG-PA is the ideal high throughput cell culture incubator for culturing or protocols that may require the use of an experimental apparatus.
