Every lab working with cell cultures should own this!
Application Area: Cell Culturec
"We use the Steri Cycle i160 CO2 Incubator in our lab for Hypoxia studies. This incubator provides options to control the oxygen levels through controlling nitrogen gas inputs. The oxygen sensor has been an excellent tool to help us to monitor the levels of oxygen accurately. It also provides a log for every open/close of the incubator door. I have to say the glass door is an excellent feature, allowing us to keep an eye on the cultures, which is not provided in other incubators. Moreover, the service from the Thermo Fisher team was helpful and quick; within a day, the service engineer reached out to us to correct a feature we had a problem with. "

Stable temperature, minimal contamination.
Application Area:Cell culture
"Temperature stable. Does not get contaminated. Only point to note is remember to remove the HEPA filter before running the sterilization cycle."

So good, there isn't much to say!
Application Area:Cell culture of human stem cells
"An example where two are better than one. The advantages of having two smaller sized incubators rather than one large one can not be underestimated, allowing for segregation of primary cells from cell lines and other convenient practices. Growth curves indicate the performance to date has been excellent, with the convenience from effective door seals and high grade steel shelves that stay perfectly level. It is helpful that a power indicator light on the front side, allows rapid verification that all is well in that regard as soon as one enters or exits the laboratory, a minor detail perhaps, but one of many thoughtful design qualities. Covered corner interiors help ensure no part of the surface is not reached when wiped clean and the in-line HEPA filters ensure the working volume of air is free of microbes as well as dust particles. The sterilisation cycles worked efficiently without overheating the room. Air humidity and CO2 levels recovered quickly after door opening, with the best thing to say about the incubators is that they don't invite much to say....they have performed well by reliably keeping the process of safe cell culture comfortably uneventful."
