MCO-230AIC IncuSafe CO2 Incubator

Optimising cell culture outcomes and reproducibility

Creating successful cell cultures requires a CO2 Incubator that offers the highest levels of precision, security and ease of use.

Precise & Regulated Environment

InCu-saFe and SafeCell UV both function to actively prevent contamination. The Direct Heat and Air Jacket System regulates the temperature whilst the Dual IR sensor controls the CO2 level.

Time-Saving Decontamination

The high-speed decontamination system uses vaporised hydrogen peroxide and UV light. It cleans the chamber of the incubator safely in less than three hours, achieving a minimal 6 log reduction of major contaminants.


Ease of Use & Increased Capacity

A full colour LCD touchscreen allows full control even with gloved hands. Transfer of data is easy via a USB port. The easy-toclean interior features fully rounded corners and integrated shelf supports.

"The increased capacity offers the possibility to utilise the incubator from R&D to clinical trials and manufacturing"

  • Improved insulation performance and lower running costs
  • PID Control of CO2 and temperature
  • Dual IR CO2 sensor
  • Optimum protection for your cell culturers
  • More space for more cultures
  • Panasonic’s H2O2 vapour sterilisation cycle reduces downtime to less than 3 hours for complete, validatable decontamination for increased productivity.
