MCO-5ACL-PA Features

Superior Growth Environment

Optimal cell culturing is achieved through the thermal conductivity (TC) sensor which ensures precise CO2 control with fast recovery following door openings and reproducible environmental conditions.

Compact and Stackable CO2 Incubator

Ideal for individual cell culture applications, the MCO-5ACL-PA compact incubator has a versatile, stackable design that helps maximize usable lab space.

Background Contamination Control with InCu-saFe®

The MCO-5ACL-PA stackable CO2 incubator is designed with standard, passive contamination control throughout the chamber interior. PHCbi's inCu-saFe combines the germicidal properties of elemental copper with the corrosion and discoloration resistance of stainless steel.

Optional SafeCell™ UV Protection

The optional SafeCell UV lamp provides an added layer of contamination control. It eliminates contaminants introduced during door openings as they pass over the humidity reservoir surface.

Direct Heat and Air Jacket System

Superior temperature uniformity and accurate temperature levels are achieved by the microprocessor controlled Direct Heat and Air Jacket System.

Integrated Microprocessor Control

Control and monitoring is offered through a fully integrated microprocessor controller with independent LED displays for CO2 and temperature.

The softkey seven button menu enables intuitive programming. Alarm notifications warn when functions deviate from setpoints. Remote alarm contacts are provided standard.

Shelf Channel System

The compact incubator offers a removable shelf channel system with no tools required for easy cleaning. The incubator is supplied with three shelves standard and holds a maximum six shelves on 1.1" (29mm) centers.

Rapid CO2 Density Recovery

The automatic CO2 control system delivers precise, reliable and repeatable CO2 control. The CO2 setpoint is adjustable from 0% to 20%. The CO2 sample port is integrated into the inner glass door.


CytoGrow Stackable CO2 Incubators

PHCbi's CytoGrow CO2 stackable incubator offers precise CO2 control in a compact, space saving design that allows up to three models to be stacked. The unit is ideal for individual cell culture studies and laboratories with limited space.

The MCO-5ACL-PA compact incubator offers the patented Direct Heat and Air Jacket conditioning system, optional patented SafeCell UV technology, and microprocessor control and monitoring.
