Direct Heat Chamber 
  • 165L electropolished stainless steel chamber with compact footprint, easily stackable 
  • Adjustable, perforated shelving 
  • Reversible exterior door for added flexibility
THRIVE  Active Airflow  
  • In-chamber fan gently distributes clean, humidified air throughout the chamber ensuring  homogeneous conditions 
  • Fast recovery of all parameters ten minutes or less for stable culturing conditions 
  • Auto-stop function disables fan operation during door openings to minimize air exchange
ISO 5 HEPA Filtration 
  • In-chamber HEPA continuously filters the entire chamber air volume every 60 seconds
  • ISO 5 clean room air quality is achieved in the culture chamber within 5 minutes
  • Continuous protection by minimizing ability for contaminants to settle on interior surfaces
Protected Humidity Reservoir 
  • Directly heated water reservoir provides stable high relative humidity levels, preventing culture desiccation 
  • Condensation free inner chamber, prevents a breeding ground for contaminant
  • 5X faster humidity recovery than traditional water pan designs 
In situ sensors and probes
  • Dual temperature probes  for over temperature protection with operational back up
  • Choice of thermal conductivity (TC) with rh compensation or single beam, dual wavelength infrared (IR) CO2 sensor
  • O2 control ranges 1 to 21% (hypoxic) and 5 to 90% (hyperoxic)
Steri-Run, high temperature defection cycle 
  • Overnight cycle simplifies cleaning and eliminates the need for separate autoclaving of parts
  • 180°C cycle assures uniform 6-log sterilization on all chamber surfaces
Intuitive, interactive iCAN™ Touchscreen Control
  • Bright, door-mounted display for easy accessibility and viewing
  • Selectable languages simplify operation: English, Spanish, German, French, Italian, Japanese and Mandarin
