CO2 Incubator Decontamination Cycles

Convenient Contamination Control

Dual Decontamination Cycles

The direct heat technology enables the use of a 145°C dry and 95°C humidified decontamination cycle that can be conveniently run overnight in just 8 hours without removing the CO2 or temperature sensors. The NuTouch control system steps the user through the process with on screen instructions and displays progress throughout each phase of the complete cycle.


Cell Cultures Deserve Their Own Clean Room

Closed Loop HEPA Filtration

Continual HEPA filtration of chamber air complements periodic high heat decontamination to provide Constant Contamination Control. InVitrocell’s design constantly takes a sample of air from the chamber, routes it through a HEPA filter in a compartment outside that inner chamber, and ultimately returns it to create an ISO Class 5 level of clean air in the interior as well as a slight positive pressure. Inside the InVitrocell, your cell cultures are protected by a multi-tiered defense against contamination.

CO2 Incubator Coved Interior Corners

Coved Interior Corners

NuAire CO2 incubators are designed to minimize potential hiding places for contamination. Coved corners and a crevice-free interior, which makes it easy to clean.

CO2 Incubator Direct Heat Temperature Uniformity

Uniform Temperature

The Direct heating elements or the water jacket are wrapped in high density insulation which surrounds the growth chamber. Dual temperature sensor probes relay information back to the NuTouch Electronic Control System and make adjustments as needed.

NuTouch Control System

The NuTouch control system provides you with the user experience you have come to expect from any piece of modern equipment. Change set points, view chamber history, start a decontamination cycle, or perform a calibration procedure from this simple interface. All NuAire CO2 incubators standardize on the NuTouch control system, meaning that once users learn to navigate one incubator they can move seamlessly to any other in the lab.
