Contamination of cell cultures from microbes or other cell lines is a constant threat in any lab. It can not only influence your specific cell culture and reduce overall reproducibility, but can also cost you time, money and effort to avoid it.
Preventing contamination in the lab is an ongoing challenge. We recognise the importance of built-in mechanisms to minimise the risk of contamination.
IncuSafe CO2 Incubators are designed to actively prevent contamination during cell culturing. They provide Active Background Decontamination through the combined and continuous action of the unique, inCu-saFe germicidal interior and optional SafeCell UV lamp. The Incubator’s unique, copper-enriched stainless-steel alloy interior eliminates contamination and mitigates the effect of airborne contaminates that can be introduced through normal use. The optional, isolated, UV lamp decontaminates circulating air and water in the humidifying pan, without harming cultured cells.
