CO₂ Incubator

Products › CO₂ Incubator

A CO₂ incubator plays an important role in maintaining a cell culture’s sterility, temperature, humidity, and pH—parameters that are to maintain the culture’s viability.

Esco CO₂ incubators have top-notch features making it a reliable choice to cradle precious cells. We understand that every laboratory requires different specifications, hence, various options from filter installation, sterilization cycle, UV lamp installation, chamber material, external construction material, down to O₂ control is available for customers to choose from.

DIN 12880 Compliance

The CelCulture® CO₂ Incubator adheres to the rigorous standards outlined in DIN 12880, which establish benchmarks for modern ovens and incubators. These standards determine the heating up and cooling down times, temperature homogeneity and consistency, recovery time after the door is opened, as well as the decontamination process.

UL Certified

The Esco CelCulture® CO₂ incubator is listed by Underwriters Laboratory (UL), to meet the requirements of both the U.S. and Canada standards for electrical/mechanical integrity.

Certified Embryo Safe

Rigorously tested with the Mouse Embryo Assay (MEA), the CelCulture® has 100% embryo survival. The Mouse Embryo Assay (MEA) is the de facto standard test done to demonstrate that a procedure or an article of equipment is safe to use for manipulating human embryos (e.g., in vitro fertilization or IVF).

HPA Validated Decontamination Cycle

The Esco CelCulture® CO₂ Incubator’s 90°C decontamination cycle has been evaluated and shown to be an effective method for deactivation of the normally resistant fungi, bacterial spores, and vegetative cells.

FDA-listed, Class II, 510k exempt medical device

Esco CelCulture® CO₂ incubator is listed as a medical device on the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (USFDA) Establishment Registration & Device Listing. It is classified as a Class II medical device under 21 CFR 884.6120 for assisted reproduction accessories and is exempted for the premarket notification (510(k)) to market.
