CO2 Incubator – CO2 Incubators lab incubator thermostat

Cell cultures, tissue cultures and bacteria cultures, as well as micro-organisms, need protection in a controlled and physiologically ideal environment. Especially for in-vitro fertilization, the precision and reliability of the CO2 incubator are of crucial importance, as the slightest deviation in the CO2 atmosphere, temperature or humidity content during cultivation can already affect cell development. For this reason, Memmert has subjected its CO2 incubators INCOmed to a comprehensive evaluation process for their recognition as medical devices. The classification as class IIa medical device confirms that each Memmert CO2 incubator INCOmed complies with the essential safety requirements of the European Medical Devices Directive 93/42/EEC.

  • Temperature range up to +50 °C
  • 3 model sizes (108 l, 153 l and 246 l)
  • The standard INCOmed appliance can be expanded with 7 additional modules
  • State-of-the-art control technology based on the P performance class for all models
  • Humidity limit control integrated as standard for all models (humidity module with active humidity control system at extra charge)
  • For all models, the inner chamber, including all fittings and all sensors, can be sterilised at +160 °C in a 4 hour programme, using the standard STERICard

Lean perfection – top precision!

We never save on essentials. Even in the attractively-priced standard model, the CO2 incubator INCOmed offers unparalleled precision and reliability. Do you have any further requirements in addition to this? You can put together your own customised INCOmed from 7 optional and freely combinable additional modules.
  • Comfort module: Two gas connections with quick release connectors, automatic switch-over between gas bottles (a combination of the comfort module and the O2 module is not possible, since N2 introduction takes place via the second gas bottle connection)
  • Hygiene module: electropolished, seamless laser-welded chamber
  • Communication module: USB interface, “Celsius” standard software for programming and logging, ring memory, printer port
  • CO2 module: Extended CO2 range from 0 to 20 %
  • O2 module: Control of oxygen concentration through the introduction of nitrogen, setting range from 1 % to 20 % O2 (a combination of the comfort module or premium module and the O2 module not possible, since the N2 introduction takes place via the second gas bottle connection)
  • Premium module: Includes comfort, hygiene, communication and CO2 modules
  • Humidity module: active microprocessor humidification and dehumidification control (40 - 97 % rh)

Uniform temperature distribution: Interior heated on all 6 sides:

For the INCOmed, the tried and tested Memmert heating concept was once again perfected: heating the inner chamber on all six sides, along with the electronic humidity limit control, is decisive in preventing condensation from forming in the inner chamber, while offering maximum protection to the cell cultures. An aluminium thermal conductive layer supports optimum temperature distribution, and serves as a heat accumulator in case of a temporary power failure. The turbulence-free chamber ventilation ensures a constant and uniform atmosphere.

Stainless steel – a CO2 incubator almost for ever

More than 65 years of permanent development work, as well as extensive feedback from a wealth of experience in the field, are embodied in each Memmert CO2 incubator:
  • Almost exclusive use of high-quality, corrosion-resistant and easy-to-clean stainless steel for the working chamber and housing
  • Alarm functions, three-fold overtemperature protection and simultaneous display of all parameters provide safety for samples and cultures in medicine, life science, environmental technology, bacteriology, virology, biology, biotechnology and zoology.
  • A wide range of options for programming and documentation using interfaces, Celsius software, integrated log memory and chip cards (features dependent on the controller class)
  • Three-year guarantee on appliances, not including wear and tear parts
  • The temperature values of all CO2 incubators are measured according to DIN 12880:2007-05
  • Each CO2 incubator is safety-tested and bears this sign:
