"User friendly and quiet with a very small footprint. Can be stacked to save space and has a self sterilization setting which is amazing. No more manual sterilization of the incubator."

Good product but pricey.
Rating: 3.3

  • Application Area:Cell culture, hypoxic culture

"The incubator is easy to use and the oxygen sensor is easy to remove and place. However, the oxygen sensor makes the incubator relatively expensive and the sensor requires yearly replacements, whether used or not."

In total, a good product.

  • Application Area:Assessing product concentration with qPCR

"Product easy to use - big and comfortable. However, we had to submit it to service because of problems with the temperature sensor. It happened already twice, to two independent products. Let's hope that this is just a coincidence."

"Easy to use, but it is very sensitive to temperature changes and sounds the alarm when it is overfilled with flakes containing fresh medium."

  • Application Area:CO2 incubation

"The product responds to all the characteristics that we need for our studies. It is really easy to use compared to our previous incubator from another brand. We do not have occasion of any after sales care at moment. I think there is a good balance of value and quality."

Galaxy® 170 R and 170 S CO2 incubator is a high-capacity, 170 liter incubator that provides superior quality, outstanding performance, and intuitive operation for your lab!

The 170 R and S can be conveniently placed on or under the bench or even double stacked, making them ideal for a wide range of specialized and traditional applications where ever incubation is required. An advanced six-sided direct heating system gently bathes cells in a seamless, fanless chamber. Galaxy 170 R models provide a tremendous amount of usable space that can be optimized with options including O2 control, active cooling, and UV-sterilization.


Features:

  • Full sized 170 Liter (6.0 ft3) provides high capacity incubation within a minimal footprint
  • Temperature range from 4°C above ambient to 50°C
  • Sealed, inner glass door allows observation of samples without disturbing cultures.
  • Six-sided direct heating system provides a uniform incubated environment to gently bathes cells
  • Fanless design achieved with advanced heating system eliminates a classic, and often repeated source of contamination
  • Deep-drawn, stainless steel chamber eliminates seams or welds, removing potential sources of contamination
