Enhanced temperature stability

Thermo Scientific water jacketed CO2 incubators deliver dependable thermal protection from swings in ambient temperature and power variations. This traditional CO2 incubator is the benchmark for reliability and uniformity.

  • Unique triple-wall construction protects against ambient temperature fluctuations
  • Large 6.5 cu. ft. corrosion-resistant stainless steel chamber
  • Patented, heated dual-pane, inner-glass door minimizes condensation with improved responsiveness and faster temperature recovery
  • Internal shelves are easily installed and removed without tools for easy cleaning
  • Remote alarm contacts for connection to the in-house alarm system
  • Stacking kit included for dual-stack configuration
  • Choice of TC or IR sensor-based CO2 control

Optional class 100 HEPA filtered air protection

  • Class 100 HEPA airflow is the preferred method of protection for water jacket incubators.
  • In-chamber HEPA air filtration system continuously filters the entire chamber volume every minute, creating cleanroom Class 100 conditions to preserve your aseptic culturing environment.
  • Add the optional in-chamber HEPA filter to effectively address airborne contaminants from routine door openings, which are the primary source of contamination in most cell culture settings.

Easy to clean

  • Polished stainless steel interior with 100% coved corners is easy to clean, saves time, and reduces contamination risk.
  • Sturdy stainless steel shelves and supports can be readily removed without tools for easy cleaning, autoclaving, or adjustment.
  • The patented inner-door gasket is removable and cleanable, and adjusts continually to ensure a tight seal.
  • Optional in-chamber HEPA filter snap fits, making it easy to remove without tools.
