MEMMERT Model INC108Med – CO2 Incubator

The CO2 Incubator INCOmed is 100 % AtmoSAFE! Especially for in-vitro fertilization, the precision and reliability of the CO2 incubator are of crucial importance, as the slightest deviation in the CO2 atmosphere, temperature or humidity content during cultivation can already affect cell development. For this reason, Memmert has subjected its CO2 incubator INCOmed to a comprehensive evaluation process for its recognition as a medical device. The classification as class IIa medical device confirms that each Memmert CO2 incubator INCOmed complies with the essential safety requirements of the European Medical Devices Directive 93/42/EEC.

CO2 CO2-supply interruption upon door opening
CO2 digital electronic CO2-control with automatic zeroing (infrared measuring system) – adjustment range 0 – 10 % – resolution 0.1 %
Controller digital display of all set parameters, such a temperature, weekdays, time, CO2, humidity and set-up values – language to be chosen via set-up
Controller Electronic microprocessor temperature controller with auto-diagnostic system
Controller digital display of setpoit and actual values (LED) for temperature (resolution 0.1°C) and CO2 concentration (0.1 %)
Timer digital 7-day programme timer with real time clock, precise minute setting

Temperature

min. 8°C above ambient up to +50°C

Control technology

Calibration three freely selectable temperature values, 2-point-calibration for humidity: 20 and 90 %, 3-point calibration for CO2: 5 %, 7 %, 10 %

Ventilation

uniform atmosphere and temperature distribution owing to enclosed non-turbulent ventilation system in working chamber

Communication

Documentation programme stored in case of power failure

Safety
