Easy-to-care-for Incubator
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area: Cell Culture / Tissue Culture

"I joined the lab after one of these had already been purchased (model MCO-18AIC(UV)). When another, older incubator in the lab died its final death, I had to choose what to replace it with. Years of positive experiences dealing with our Sanyo InCu-Safe incubator led to me purchasing another one of it, but a later model (MCO-19AIC). I am glad every day that I made that decision. The display is easy to understand and interact with. The air jacket keeps the internal temperature quite constant, and it uses very little CO2: the pair of them are jointly connected to a single CO2 tank, which only has to be replaced once or twice a year). There is an audible alarm that alerts you to problems, and it requires infrequent but easy maintenance (bi-weekly top off of the humidifying pan, occasional surface wipe down, semi-annual serious scrub-down). Sanyo was purchased by Panasonic, who now handles their customer support, and Panasonic were very helpful to me over the phone for issues related to error codes, suggested maintenance plans, and getting PDF copies of the manual to me. I'll definitely keep this product in mind if I have to purchase another incubator in the future. "

"Our Sanyo Co2 incubator was always a reliable piece of kit for many years and much cheaper than most competitors. We have it with the copper lining alloy. I never had a contamination and it survived many moves. Highly recommended."

Review date: 03 Oct 2012 | Sterisonic™ GxP, MCO-19AIC (UVH) Cell Culture Incubator
The Sterisonic™ GxP, MCO-19AIC(UVH) Cell Culture Incubator uses the industry’s first rapid H2O2 sterilization system, an under three hour decontamination process that is the fastest method available, and a number of other patented SANYO features makes the MCO-19AIC(UVH) the most complete sterilization system available, and the most complete cell culture solution.

• All interior components and CO2 sampling loop are sterilized in situ; no need for removal and autoclaving.

• Active Background Contamination Control™ fights contamination while cell culture protocols are in process.

• The patented SafeCell™ UV system scrubs interior airflow to destroy airborne and humidity pan contaminants.

• Exclusive InCu SaFe™ copper-enriched stainless steel interior surfaces assure constant germicidal protection

Designed for a wide array of demanding and highly regulated applications in the biomedical, pharmaceutical, medical research and clinical laboratory.

Other Standout Features Include:

• A full-scale control center via an intuitive pop-up menu, high resolution LCD for inputs, outputs and performance at-a-glance.

• SANYO proprietary single-beam, dual detector infrared (IR2) CO2 sensor to deliver precise CO2 control, quick recovery following door openings, auto sampling with no moving parts, continuous calibration, and an optional semi automatic one-point calibration system.

• Patented Direct Heat/Air™ conditioning system provides manages set point temperature through multiple, variable warming points under microprocessor control.

H2O2 Sterilization comes standard on the MCO-19AIC(UVH) model and as an optional accessory on the MCO-19AIC(UV). Unlike conventional models, unique features of the SANYO Sterisonic™ GxP incubator permit use of the H2O2 process in situ with complete safety, minimal impact on adjacent equipment or the environment, and relative speed to return the incubator to service delivering the best performance and value money can buy.
