LEEC Culture Safe Touch 190 and Touch 190S CO2 incubators have a fully sealed, one-piece, deep drawn, electro-polished 190-litre chamber, which is manufactured from 304 grade stainless steel. The outer cabinet is manufactured from stainless steel and has an anti-microbial polyester powder coated paint finish giving these CO2 incubators exceptional corrosion and contamination resistance.

LEEC Culture Safe Touch CO2 incubators have 6-sided, fan-less heating systems with high-performance thermal insulation, minimising the risk of contamination and reducing running costs. Each incubator has an inner glass viewing door which gives a clear view of the chamber without disturbing the internal atmosphere. The outer door provides a firm seal with a magnetic gasket, which locks during the 200°C sterilisation cycle (Touch 190S only). An infrared CO2 sensor gives accurate readings of the internal atmosphere regardless of the humidity level.

LEEC also offers a low oxygen multi-gas incubator with CO2 and O2 control as a factory-fitted option on the Touch 190S and mini Culture Safe Touch 50S CO2 incubators. (Please see the TECHNICAL tab for more details).
