    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
