    Description Heracell VIOS 250i Tri-Gas C02 incubator single chamber

    Achieve your next breakthrough. The Thermo Scientific™ Heracell™ VIOS CO2  incubator is specifically designed to deliver the performance reliability, ease of operation, and value required to support a range of culturing needs from basic research to the demanding, leading-edge applications, so you're ready for whatever comes next.
    Better solutions for optimal cell growth. Get added culturing flexibility with our CO2 incubators with variable oxygen control (tri-gas).

    Direct Heat Chamber 
    • 165L (5.8 cu ft) electropolished stainless steel chamber with compact footprint, easily stackable 
    • Standard left hand door swing, with inner 3 segmented gas tight glass doory
    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 five 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 
    • Cover limits particles and spilled media from settling into the reservoir 
    • Condensation free inner chamber, prevents a breeding ground for contaminant
    • 5X faster humidity recovery than traditional water pan designs
    • For easier water handling, humidity reservoir may be filled or drained without the removal of shelves or cultures 
    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 disinfection 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 eliminating biological contaminants 
    Intuitive, interactive iCAN™ Touchscreen Control
    • Convenient on-screen user prompts and reminders  for easy  navigation
    • Selectable languages simplify operation: English, Spanish, German, French, Italian, Japanese and Mandarin
    • Visibility to changes in culture environment on performance graphs and error and data logs
    Ordering Information:

    For 220V Tri-gas models, please order a Heracell VIOS single base model (51030287, 51030286, 51030478 or 51030476) with the factory installed O2 controlled option
