MCO-170M IncuSafe Multigas Incubator

So comfortable, your cells will feel in vivo

The IncuSafe MCO-170M Multigas Incubator offers the most precise regulation of oxygen and other gases, while maintaining superior temperature uniformity, contamination control, and usability.

The Dual Infra Red sensor achieves ultra-fast CO2 recovery without overshoot, even following multiple door openings whilst the unique solid Zirconia O2 sensor delivers precise control of physiological oxygen levels to simulate in vivo conditions.

Sensitive Cell Culturing

Culturing cells at physiological oxygen levels allows them to grow faster, live longer, and experience fewer mutations. The IncuSafe MCO-170M Multigas Incubator helps to achieve more accurate results when culturing cells at physiological oxygen levels and is therefore ideally suited for mammalian tissue research applications, cellular therapy, stem cell research, pathophysiological studies and pharmaceutical production processes.

Active Background Decontamination

The exclusive inCu-saFe copper-enriched stainless steel alloy interor offers the germicidal properties of copper and the durability of stainless steel. The optional, isolated, SafeCell UV lamp decontaminates circulating air and water in the humidifying pan, without harming cultured cells.
