‘A choice of either water jacket (WJ) or direct heat (DH) incubators is offered to meet even the most stringent laboratory and research requirements, offering maximum thermal protection and the flexibility to culture cells with confidence.’
A triple wall construction and large water volume ensures the incubators provide excellent temperature stability and protection against heat loss,’ the company adds. ‘By holding the temperature for long periods, the (WJ) incubators offer extended protection during power failures. These incubators are lightweight, offering advanced airflow and direct chamber heating, to provide temperature uniformity and stability for an ideal culturing environment. The automatic high temperature decontamination cycle is ideal for overnight sterilization.’
All incubators in this series have a patented HEPA filter airflow system, to achieve Class 100 air quality within five minutes and continuously filter the entire chamber volume, eliminating any airborne contamination.
The incubators have polished stainless steel interiors, coved corners, and shelves and supports that can be easily removed without tools, the company points out. ‘The HEPA filter is located just inside the incubator chamber for easy access and simple replacement. With an intuitive user interface and a choice of T/C or IR CO2 sensors, the Thermo Scientific Series 8000 CO2 incubators are an ideal choice for researchers in academic, government and clinical laboratories.’
