Balanced CO2 content inside the incubator not only controls pH of cell media, but also brings the gas consumption to the minimum.
Designed for live cell imaging and time-lapsed microscopy.
The controller is used to deliver gas mixture inside any custom enclosure and miniature incubators.
For use with any custom enclosure and miniature incubators, to regulate CO2 level from 0 to 5% (optional range 0-20%)
Digital CO2 Gas Mixer
Designed for live cell imaging and time-lapsed microscopy. For use with any custom enclosure and miniature incubators, to regulate CO2 level from 0 to 5% (optional range 0-20%). Connects to a cylinder with compressed CO2 gas. The output connects directly to a gas port of the incubator or to a humidifier. Can provide up to 225 cm3/sec gas flow, which is enough to make 5% CO2 in 4.5l enclosure in 1sec. The controller continuously senses CO2 concentration inside the incubator through CO2-UP attachment, which is small enough (69x29x25mm) to be placed inside custom enclosures. It can be also attached from outside. CO2 control at 5% level keeps pH of media constant. Simple to use: the controller ships calibrated for 5% level requirement (other CO2 ranges and higher flow output are available on request). Can be adjusted to fill incubators of different volumes (and custom chambers). The instrument not only controls gas content inside the incubator, but also brings the gas consumption to the minimum. Note: if using pre-mixed 5%CO2/95%O2 gas source – a different PC-MI controller is required.
Required accessories: a source of CO2 gas, CO2-UP upgrade, miniature incubator.
A humidifier CO2-500ML is included;
The package also incldues the CO2 Upgrade for Miniature Incubators – connects to CO2 Controller. Can be used with custom chambers.
Heated Humidifier is included. When passed through heated water, CO2 mixture becomes humid. Can be also used as an indicator of gas flow – bubbles will indicated gas flowing inside the incubator. Connects inline between the controller and the incubator.
Required accessories: a source of CO2 gas, miniature incubator.
