Direct heat chamber
  • The 184L (6.5 cu. ft) capacity chamber provides large culturing space and the ideal environment for cell culture applications
  • Standard right hand door swing, field-installed reversible door available
  • Polished stainless steel interior chamber is designed with coved corners to simplify cleaning
  • Removable humidity pan
  • In-chamber fan gently distributes air throughout the chamber ensuring homogeneous conditions
  • Sturdy stainless steel shelves and supports can be removed without tools

140°C sterilization cycle
  • On-demand 140°C overnight (14 hours) sterilization cycle simplifies cleaning and eliminates the need for separate autoclaving and reassembly of components
  • Effectively eliminates bacteria, mold, yeast, and mycoplasmas from internal surfaces
ISO Class 5 HEPA filtration airflow system
  • In-chamber HEPA air filtration continuously filters the entire chamber volume every 60 seconds
  • Reaches ISO Class 5 air quality in 5 minutes after door opening
  • Continuous protection by minimizing ability for airborne contaminants to settle on interior surfaces

In situ sensors and probes designed for precise monitoring
  • Choice of TC (thermal conductivity) CO2 sensor for long, reliable operation or IR (infrared) CO2 sensor for monitoring when humidity and temperature are less predictable
  • Dual temperature probes for over temperature protection
  • Optional rH display for monitoring humidity levels to prevent “dry-outs”

Enviro-Scan microprocessor control
  • Easy- to-use, alphanumeric LED display
  • Flexible, intuitive controls with message center that includes process and alarm status messages
  • Configurable audible on/off, access code, tracking low and high alarms
