Panasonic’s new MCO-230AIC CO2 incubators provide outstanding quality and performance, alongside even greater capacity than previous models, to maximize cell culture efficiency and optimize results and reproducibility. Designed specifically for the safe, consistent cultivation of successful cell lines, this latest innovation offers the very highest levels of precision, security and ease-of-use.
Enhanced capacity With a 230L incubator interior, Panasonic’s MCO-230AIC CO2 incubators considerably enhance capacity, whilst minimizing carbon footprint. Designed to improve work efficiency and offer ultimate ease-of-use, the MCO-230AIC CO2 incubators feature integrated shelf supports that provide space for more culture vessels and an easy-to-clean incubator interior, with fully-rounded corners.
A new full color LCD touch screen gives clear information of the incubator status (chamber temperature, CO2level, door open status and alarms) with easy access to controller functions for fast, convenient set-up. A graphical chart display allows users to quickly review incubator performance and a standard USB port allows laboratories to optimize cell culture protocols and adhere to standard operating procedures by conveniently transferring logged data to a USB stick. In addition, the unique incubator ID allows registration of multiple units at one site without confusion.
The Panasonic MCO-230AIC CO2 incubators benefit from a Direct heat and air jacket system for high precision temperature control and rapid recovery, ensuring cultures are always maintained under optimum conditions. A dual IR CO2 sensor maintains accurate control of critical CO2 levels by minimizing the effect of temperature and humidity changes during door opening for outstanding performance and fast recovery. A precise culture environment is further ensured by advanced PID control of CO2 and temperature.
To provide optimum protection for valuable cultures, MCO-230AIC CO2 incubators incorporate continuous background contamination control with Panasonic’s InCu saFe® copper-enriched stainless steel interior and optional SafeCell® UV technology, with new increased UV lamp life, which sterilizes airborne and water pan contaminants. Furthermore, the optional H2O2 vapor sterilization cycle provides a complete, valid table decontamination with a downtime of less than three hours.
Enhanced security for cell cultures is provided with the MCO-230AIC CO2 incubator’s optional electric door lock with password. Multiple registered users can have access with their individual ID and password, ensuring that valuable cell lines are only accessible to authorized personnel.
