NBS Direct-Heat CO2 Incubators
Optimize Culture Conditions

 

CO2 Incubators

New Brunswick Scientific's advanced laboratory CO2 Incubators are uniquely designed to meet the diverse needs of today's lab. With two lines, four models and a wide range of options, these incubators meet a broad range of applications, including:

    Mammalian cell culture

Stem cell research

In-vitro fertilization (IVF)

Anaerobic bacterial culture

Aging hypoxic stress studies

Blood gas transfer, and

High oxygen tension

All models feature six-sided, direct-heating, for a stable, homogenous culture environment, with temperature uniformity ±0.2°C. A unique fanless design minimizes vibration, increases usable chamber space and simplifies cleaning.

NBS CO2 incubators are offered in a range of sizes and price points:

  • Innova CO-48 & CO-170 Incubators feature an advanced controller and exceptionally large display screen making it easy to read and program setpoints, monitor chamber conditions, historical data, alarms and diagnostics, as well as access built-in help menus. Numerous automated functions simplify operation for added convenience. Choose either our full-sized CO-170 (6.0 cu. ft./170 liters) or personal-sized CO-48 (1.7 cu. ft./48 liters).
  • Excella CO-170 Incubator same capacity as the Innova CO-170, this CO2 incubator's simple controls and smaller display screen provide an economical alternative to cost-conscious labs.
  • Innova CO-14 Incubator this miniature CO2 incubator (0.5 cu. ft./14 liters) allows you to easily isolate sensitive samples, avoiding cross-contamination issues. Originally designed for the rigorous requirements of in-vitro fertilization, it provides simple control with sophisticated design for a truly personalized culture environment.

 

CO2 incubators
Innova CO-170 provides a 6.0 cu. ft. (170 L) chamber, and features an advanced controller with automated data logging and extra-large display to simplify operation.

 

CO2 incubators
Excella ECO-170 is identical in size to the Innova CO-170, offering reliable performance at an economical price.

 

CO2 incubators
Personal-Sized Innova Model CO-48 yields a 1.7 cu. ft. chamber in an exceptionally small footprint.

 

CO2 incubators
Innova Model CO-14 - At just 12.3" (31.3 cm) wide, this uniquely-sized miniature incubator lets you isolate sensitive samples for complete peace of mind.


Superior Control. Ultimate Convenience. Simply Better.

Performance

  • Unique Six-Sided Direct Heating ensures stable temperature control, excellent uniformity (± 0.2ºC), and rapid recovery with no overshoot.
  • Extra-Large Display & Intuitive Controls Simplify Operation. Features help text, real-time data graphing, programmable alarms, diagnostics & more.
  • Redesigned CO-170 Provides More Usable Chamber Space than Comparably-Sized CO2 Incubators! Taller, less deep design provides convenient access to all samples, and 17% more usable space than ever before.
  • Elimination of Fan & Ductwork Increases Usable Chamber Space & Simplifies Cleaning. Gentle, fanless convection circulation provides excellent chamber homogeneity, eliminates vibration & reduces sample evaporation.
  • Infrared [IR] CO2 Sensor provides superior accuracy and stability over conventional thermal-conductivity sensors.
  • High Humidity Dry Wall Chamber achieves 95% RH, minimizing sample evaporation. Independent door heater eliminates condensation on inner glass surfaces.
  • Use On or Under the Bench, or Stacked Two High. Ergonomically-positioned controls & display facilitate multi-position operation. Accessory stacking stands with feet or casters optimize height & maneuverability.

Convenience

  • 72-Hour Data Storage. CO2 concentration, temperature, alarms and door openings are automatically recorded for on-screen display. Optional communications package enables data logging to your PC.
  • High-Temperature Decontamination Mode Simplifies Maintenance*. Uses 120°C dry heat to decontaminate the chamber, all internal sensors, racks & humidity pan. (*Optional feature.)
  • CO2 Sensor Auto-Zero automatically adjusts baseline for optimum accuracy. User-programmable. Requires no manual measurements or operator intervention.
  • On-Screen Help. Never lose your operating manual instructions again! Comprehensive text files walk you through set-up, programming and diagnostics.
  • Seamless Chamber, Rounded Corners and external front flange prevent contamination and simplify cleaning.
  • Bracket-Free Shelving Simplifies Cleaning. Ingenious brackt-free system eliminates areas where contaminants commonly collect to minimize contamination risk. Stainless rack & shelves are quickly removable, without tools. Four shelves in CO-170 and three in CO-48 standard; added shelving optional.
  • Space-Saving Convenient Size & Weight. Compared to air- or water-jacketed designs, direct heating decreases overall size and weight, while increasing chamber capacity. Simplifies setup, maintenance and relocation.
  • Built-In System Diagnostics help you identify system status & expedite on-site service.

Dependability

  • Comprehensive Two-Level Alarm System includes audio and screen-displayed alarms for system status, with programmable alarms for CO2 and temperature setpoints, delays, duration & more.
  • Password Protection ensures the integrity of all programmable system settings.
  • Backed by Comprehensive Warranty on parts and labor, and factory-trained field service support.

Safety

  • Separate Over-Temperature Cutout prevents over-heating condition, in event of a control failure.
  • Supervisory Microprocessor ensures system integrity by verifying main processor function.
  • Non-Volatile Memory guarantees data integrity, regardless of length of time or frequency of power interruption.
  • Alarm Setpoints Reset Automatically to ±0.5ºC and 0.5% above and below the new temperature/CO2 setpoint.
  • HEPA Filter on CO2 Inlet provides added protection from potential contamination sources.

Options for Innova CO-170 & CO-48 Incubator
Pre-Configured Systems Allow You to Mix and Match All the Most Popular Options:
