The New Brunswick Galaxy 170S Direct-Heat CO2 Incubator is ideal for traditional applications where standard incubation is required. It uses an easily-read LED display for the interface and an IR CO2 sensor with automatic auto-zero programmable function to ensure accurate calibrated measurements.
At the heart of all Galaxy CO2 incubators is a six-sided direct-heating profile. Gentle convection circulation of the chamber atmosphere maintains stable temperatures and CO2 control throughout the chamber. Unlike traditional forced-air culture systems, this design protects against wide fluctuations in temperature and CO2 that stress cells. No fan is required, which eliminates a classic source of contamination, disturbing vibrations, and costly HEPA filters. Direct-heating technology combined with the following additional features provide the perfect CO2 incubation environment.
Provides specific measurement and accurate control of CO2 levels, unlike traditional TC sensors that are sensitive to chamber humidity and temperature fluctuations.Advanced PI control:
Maintains temperature accuracy and uniformity while minimizing costly gas consumption.Tightly sealed inner glass door:
Samples can be viewed during cell culturing without compromising the sample or environment. Since the chamber remains closed when samples are viewed, temperature uniformity is maintained and costly CO2 and N2 consumption is reduced. Optional 4-split inner door is available.Unique perforated shelves:
help to ensure rapid recovery of temperature, CO2 and RH when the door is opened and closed.
