LEEC mini Culture Safe Touch CO2 incubators have fully sealed, one-piece, deep drawn 50 litre chambers which are manufactured from the highest grade electro-polished 316 grade stainless steel. The outer cabinets are manufactured from stainless steel and have an anti-bacterial polyester powder coat paint finish, giving these CO2 incubators exceptional corrosion and contamination resistance.

All LEEC mini Culture Safe CO2 incubators have 6-sided, fan-less heating systems, with high-performance thermal insulation, which minimises the risk of contamination and lowers running costs. Each incubator has an inner glass viewing door giving a clear view into the chamber without disturbing the internal atmosphere. The outer door provides a firm seal with a magnetic gasket, which locks during the sterilisation cycle (T50S only). LEEC utilise an infrared CO2 sensor, giving a more accurate reading of the internal atmosphere, irrespective of the humidity level.

LEEC also offers a low oxygen/multi-gas incubator with CO2 and Oxygen Control as a factory-fitted option (LEEC mini Culture Safe Touch 50S CO2 Incubator only). Please see the TECHNICAL tab (above) for more details.
