Nice incubator, but terrible technical assistance.
Rating: 2.3

  • Application Area: Mammalian cell culture

"We purchased a Forma 3308 CO2 incubator in late 2017. It looked to be a fine instrument, easy to use, with good temperature and humidity stability. Easy to use water system (you don't have to pour water in the bottom of the incubator as in other models). However, we've had problems with sterilization cycles since the beginning, the door opens without explanation during sterilization cycles (and thus the cycle is interrupted before finishing). We have had this incubator out of service for more than 1 year now, because technical services for Thermo Fisher Scientific equipment are terrible (at least in Portugal). They rarely answer calls or e-mails, spare parts take months to arrive, our problem remains unresolved. Good thing we have another incubator from another brand."

Reliable water jacket technology with effortless touchscreen control. The Thermo Scientific™ Forma Series Incubators just got better with the new  Forma Series 3 CO2 incubator–thanks to the easy-to-use Thermo Scientific™ iCAN™ touchscreen. Dependable temperature stability and HEPA clean room air purity are paired with the simplest way to control and monitor your incubator, ensuring protection for your important cell cultures, a combination that’s truly hard to beat.

iCAN touchscreen interface

  • Available in various languages including Japanese and Mandarin
  • Easy-to-use on-screen menu prompts
  • On-board error and data logging for monitoring performance, interactions and alarm conditions
  • Bright, door-mounted touchscreen interface provides complete data visibility to monitor all incubator interaction

Temperature stability with Water Jacket design
Unique triple-wall construction delivers optimal temperature uniformity. Provides ultimate thermal stability for protection for your valuable cell cultures against ambient temperature swings and unexpected power outages.
 
Protection with HEPA air filtration
Minimize the risk of airborne contaminants entering the incubator from multiple door openings. In-chamber HEPA filtration reaches ISO 5 clean room air quality in 5 minutes by filtering the chamber air every 60 seconds.
 
Enhanced flexibility with complete O2 control

Many cell cultures thrive best in CO2 incubators with controlled levels of oxygen. Select an O2 option to simulate physiological or hypoxic environments in a range of 1 to 20%. A dedicated O2 display set point and control allow for accurate monitoring.
