CO2 Incubators


About CO2 Incubators


Reset all

Do you cultivate cells on the top shelf of your fan-assisted cell culture incubator?

Afraid of vibrations or increased medium evaporation?

Have you ever experienced variations between cells grown in vessels on different shelves of your cell culture incubator, especially between the top shelf and others?

These differences can be caused by air turbulences that disrupt the protective micro-atmosphere above the medium. Air turbulence can be generated by fans used to circulate the atmosphere inside standard CO2 incubators. Additionally, uneven cell growth can occur because the fan may cause the vessels to vibrate – especially in the case of sensitive cells. These effects can be avoided with fanless CO2 incubators like the CellXpert. Air circulation via convection provides uniform temperatures, fast recovery, and conditions without the risks due to a fan. Enjoy peace of mind using the top shelf and use more valuable space.

Easy cleaning, reliable contamination prevention

Prevention of lab downtime and sample loss is essential for you to deliver cell culture results in time? You cannot afford to spend too much time and money on standardized cleaning of your cell culture incubator, documentation or on changing costly, non-sterilizable, fan-associated HEPA filters?

  • 180°C high temperature disinfection with illustrated step-by-step instructions on screen and downloadable performance protocol for standardized procedures
  • Minimal internal incubator parts removed in 40s and wiped quickly
  • Nowhere to hide for contaminants and cleaned fast: Smooth, seamless incubator chamber
  • Fanless design
  • No non-sterilizable fan-associated HEPA filters that can become potential contamination sources
  • Options for copper and segmented inner doors for additional protection

CO2 incubator for small cell culture labs, limited space, or personal workspaces

Is the space in your cell culture lab limited? Do you only need to handle a few samples? Or are you looking for a small CO2 incubator for your personal workspace?
The total volume of 48L or 1.7ft3 , the high usable volume, and the small footprint (48.3?× 47.5?× 64.5cm?/ 19.0?× 18.7?× 25.4in (W x D x H) of the Galaxy 48R CO2 incubator make it ideal for cell culture labs with limited space or number of samples, as well as for personal workspaces.

Small CO2 incubator for cell line isolation or quarantine

Do you frequently get cell lines from other cell culture labs? Stay safe and isolate, check, and transfer.

Be aware of an incalculable risk for contamination or misidentification by cell lines from other labs. This is especially the case for frozen cultures from other cell culture labs that may have never been tested for the invisible enemy mycoplasma. To prevent spreading of microbial contaminants across your existing cell cultures, all new cell lines should be isolated first and treated as potentially contaminated until the opposite has been proven or an appropriate certificate is provided. The small CO2 incubator Galaxy 48R is ideal for initial quarantine or isolation of a new cell line coming into your lab, while checking cell line identity (e.g. by STR-profiling or karyotyping) and for (mycoplasma) contamination."
