LEEC’s Research CO2 Incubators set advanced standards in performance and freedom from contamination. The two Research models have the added benefit of a high-temperature decontamination facility (95°C).
They also feature some advanced functionality that makes these the perfect choice for your laboratory:
Advanced Microprocessor Control
The microprocessor controller gives you day-to-day control over all alarm settings, alarm delay and calibration adjustment, protected by an anti-tampering procedure. Sensors placed within key areas of the chamber constantly monitor the environment inside, enabling the control system to optimise temperature and CO2 levels. After door opening, the culture conditions quickly recover without overshooting to allow stable control to be maintained and profiled heating (a technique developed by LEEC) eliminates all risk of "hot-spots" in the incubator.
LEEC GA CO2 incubators (regardless of age) can become cooled CO2 incubators when connected to a LEEC self-contained recirculating cooler unit.
Active Contamination Control
All models have fan assisted airflow inside the chamber, an in-line CO2 HEPA filter and an ultra-smooth stainless steel chamber with rounded corners. The indirectly heated inner glass door(s) ensures that this always remain condensation free. Both of these features help to reduce the risk of contamination. The two Research models (GA2000 and GA3000) also have a high-temperature decontamination facility (95°C) which is operated by a key which user experience has to be especially effective in eliminating culture contamination.
The LEEC designed multi-function microprocessor control system combined with fan-assisted airflow ensures that temperature and CO2 stabilities (typically <±0.2°C and <±0.2% CO2) are maintained to the tightest tolerances to give optimum "in-vivo" simulation.
