InCu-SaFe

Provides natural germicidal protection without rust or corrosion

Is Your Incubator's Environment Optimized?

The CellIQ Multi-gas series of incubators address the industry’s concern for a precision and stable environment. With new technology for rapid CO2 recovery, temperature uniformity, and fast decontamination, the CellIQ series are most popular amongst the in vitro fertilization research community and other highly regulated applications.

VERSUS

image description
High Heat Sterilization
  • Thermophilic organisms and mycoplasma remain undetected
  • Less efficient and more effort to maintain
Copper Interior
image description
  • May become corroded after a long period of time
  • Contamination is difficult to detect due to less visibility
  • More expensive and difficult to maintain
image description
Traditional CO2 INCUBATOR
image description
H2O2 Decontamination
  • Protection with Active Background Contamination Control
image description
  • Learn about an independent study using the CellIQ incubator that shows at least a 6 log reduction of all major contaminants in a laboratory environment after H2O2 decontamination Download Study
  • The CellIQ incubator pays for itself within the first year just with the annual savings on labor costs
Active Background Contamination Control
  • InCu-saFe with SafeCell UV provides Active Background Contamination Control to your cell culture

Uniform Environment
image description
Temperature Uniformity

The patented Direct Heat and Air Jacket System eliminates the need for a conventional water jacket system, while achieving temperature stability, uniformity and fast recovery following door openings

image description
CO2 Recovery

A proprietary single-beam, dual detector infrared (IR2) sensor delivers quick recovery and precise CO2 control - Full CO2 recovery is achieved within 2 minutes, without overshoot.

image description
Consistent Humidity

Humidification is achieved by combined forced-air and natural evaporation method enhanced by the Direct Heat and Air Jacket system – Optical water level indicator warns when the water level reduces in the humidity pan

Uniform Environment Stable and Consistent Environment in the Incubator
image description
Greater Capacity/Yield

CellIQ Series provides HIGH VOLUME, LOW FOOTPRINT cabinet design, so that you are able to generate significantly MORE TOTAL YIELD per incubation cycle, without taking up any extra space in your lab

Fit more flasks at a time to Maximize your total yield

Competitive Comparison

cellIQ vs. Traditional

Temperature Uniformity

image description

Patented Direct Heat and Air Jacket System for improved Uniformity - ±0.25 at 37°C

image description

Water Jacketed Incubators are an older technology and can be a source of contamination. Other competitors with Air Jacket systems do not provide any additional design advantage like the Direct Heat and Air system.

Interiors

image description

InCu-saFe - Copper-enriched stainless steel surface fights off surface contamination and doesn’t corrode like solid copper surfaces. This is a standard feature with no additional cost.

image description

Stainless Steel does not inhibit contamination. In an incubator environment growth will easily occur on stainless steel. Copper has similar germicidal properties as InCu-saFe, but is more expensive and difficult to maintain.

CO2 Sensors

image description

Panasonic single beam, dual detector infrared (IR2) Sensors offer full CO2 recovery within 2 minutes, without overshoot following the door openings

image description

Thermal Conductivity (TC) Sensors are affected by temperature variations and humidity. At a 5% setpoint, the difference in the reading can be as much as 80% inaccuracy for up to an hour following a door closing
