NuTouch (Touchscreen) Electronic Control System (ECS)
Four different languages (English, French, Spanish and German) , standard on each In-VitroCell incubator allow users to easily view and control the system with the touch of a finger. Quickly access system parameters such as set points and monitor temperature history and carbon dioxide graphs right on the screen (USB download capable).
Dual Wave Infra Red CO2 Sensor
A microprocessor-based, non-dispersive, single source dual wave infrared (IR) sensor monitors and controls CO2 levels inside the growth chamber. Wavelengths are only absorbed by CO2 making measurement insensitive to other components, such as water vapor. The stable IR sensor has a controlled range of 0.1 to 20% accurate within 0.1%.
Constant Contamination Control (C3) :
I. Closed Loop HEPA Filtration :
A maintenance free air pump continuously draws environmental samples from two locations inside the chamber and passes the sample through a 99.99% HEPA filter before entering the sensor bay to measure gas. The IR sensor measures CO2 gas levels from the sample to monitor before entering the sensor bay to measure gas. The IR sensor measures CO2 gas levels from the sample to monitor before injecting back into the growth chamber. The NuTouch Electronic Control system will then determine the appropriate course of action to maintain chamber set-point conditions by placing the system on standby or injecting 99.99% HEPA filtered CO2 gas or air into the growth environment.
II. ISO Class 5 Cleanroom Conditions :
Based on clean room technology, In-VitroCell maintains the growth chamber at positive pressure similar to an ISO Class 5 Clean room to slow airflow to minimize desiccation. Anytime the chamber door is open to the laboratory environment, clean HEPA filtered will be forced out instead of contaminated lab air being drawn in.
III. Temperature Uniformity :
The chamber walls are surrounded by five (5) heating elements to control temperature. A door heater is separately controlled to minimize condensation on the inner chamber door. The heating elements are wrapped in a high density R5 insulation to maintain temperature integrity. Dual temperature sensor probes monitor and control temperature set points to ensure consistency and uniformity throughout the chamber.
Advanced Construction :
Attention to Proper Materials and Construction Methods :
The inner chamber is constructed of high grade 16 gauge, type 304L polished stainless steel using crevice-free construction that provides an easily cleanable inert surface that does NOT promote biological growth. Seamless coved interior corners are easily cleaned promoting a healthy growth chamber. A single piece gasket creates a liquid tight seal from incubator chamber to inner door to eliminate condensation build up and potential contamination. Inner chamber shelving and gasket may be removed and routinely autoclaved if desired.
Small Footprint, Incredibility Large Useable Space :
A large 200 litres growth chamber comes standard with four incubator shelves with a maximum capacity of 23 shelves. By attaching heating elements directly to the chamber and insulating with High Density R5 insulation In-VitroCell was engineered as a compact design while maximizing chamber capacity.
Upgrade Your System :
CuVerro® Antimicrobial Copper Surfaces (Optional Feature) :
Add CuVerro® Antimicrobial Copper Surfaces to the incubator growth chamber and/or shelving to kill bacteria* to minimize potential incubator contamination. CuVerro® is laboratory tested and EPA registered. CuVerro® Antimicrobial Copper Surfaces kill more than 99.9% of bacteria* within 2 hours, and continues to kill 99% of bacteria* even after repeated contamination, when cleaned regularly.
EPA Reg No 85353-5
EPA Est No 088257-MN-001
*Laboratory testing shows that, when cleaned regularly, CuVerro® antimicrobial copper surfaces kill greater than 99.9% of the following bacteria within 2 hours of exposure: MRSA, Staphylococcus aureus, Enterobacter aerogenes, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and E. coli O157:H7. CuVerro® antimicrobial copper surfaces are a supplement to and not a substitute for standard infection control practices and have been shown to reduce microbial contamination, but do not necessarily prevent cross contamination; users must continue to follow all current infection control practices, including those practices related to cleaning and disinfection of environmental surfaces.
