IVF has become a very popular medical process as of late across the globe. Similarly, other processes like cell culture and tissue culture has gained importance because of the raising concerns as well as needs for R&D in the field of biotechnology. For such critical and high end processes, certain special equipment is needed, like the CO2 incubator. Without this specialized equipment, the processes cannot be done with full accuracy.
The CO2 environment provided engulfs the equipment from outside atmosphere, protecting it from heat in particular. Therefore, a very accurate low temperature can be maintained inside the incubator that ensures the proper environment for the tissues and cells to be preserved are kept in
the right condition. Thus, the equipment runs in a more perfectly insulated environment with better level of insulation, higher accuracy and lower operational costs.
The best part about the CO2 incubator is that the environment inside is absolutely full proof from any microbial contamination. In most cases of medical R&D, contamination plays a very important role. Many experiments fail or offer faulty results because of contamination, which in
most cases are not known to have happened. The CO2 environment in case of these incubators ensures that the contamination is nil, and everything kept inside is absolutely safe.
Areas of application
The CO2 incubator finds its way to be used for a variety of applications, like the microbiology lab, storage of embryos and storage of gametes. They are also used for genomic and proteomic expression culture of amphibian cells and exotic plants, transgenic and hypersensitive cell
culture, low volume microplates handling and regeneration of autologous tissue and tissue culture labs. These incubators are also extensively required for IVF culture labs and IV fertility centers.
The CO2 incubator that are on offer over here ensure minimal contamination. The control of gas, humidity and temperature is done superbly with perfection through digital options. There is dual sterilization cycle to ensure no contamination during any point of operation. There is also easy and quick cleaning facility provided.
The maintenance of these incubators is very easy and low cost. There is very low vibration during operation and fast recovery of temperature even after prolonged door opening. The temperature maintained is very accurate while there is dual wave IR sensor provided too. The air flow is very smooth around the culture plate environment and there is no disturbance caused to the cell culture process. The in-built pollution control system ensures that there is no load on the environment because of the device while the system is found to be low cost and highly user friendly by most of the users. This CO2 incubator is thus a must in every IVF center and high end tissue and cell culture labs today.
