Additional Information

- 6 Sides Direct Heating System
Electric heating wire is covered on all sides of the chamber which provides stable uniformity, fast heat-up and fast temperature recovery. Three parts of heating section are controlled and calibrated individually by three temperature sensors.

- Dry Wall and Air Jacket
Warm air from heating jacket is preserved in space between chamber and insulation. It helps the temperature recover faster and minimises heat loss. Dry wall with insulation does not require regular maintenance.

- Dual Beam Infrared (IR) C02 Sensor
Fast and precise detection for C02 gas regardless of temperature and humidity.

- Natural Humidification using Water Tray
The heater on the bottom side of the cabinet warms the water in the tray to provide humidification. The circulation fan delivers the moisture formed from the water tray around the entire chamber.

- No Condensation
Heating by front door heater and frame heater prevent condensation in the chamber and on the glass door.

- Microprocessor PID Control
Intelligent Control for CO2 density, temperature, alarm and automatic decontamination (optional)

- HEPA Filtration of Gas Supply Inlets

- Perforated Shelves are good for natural air flows and stainless steel is resistant against rust and contamination.

- Rounded Corners
allow easy cleaning and entire chamber is crevice-free

- Alarm System
Buzzer to alarm low or high deviation of C02 and temperature.

- Over Heating Limit
Heating is automatically cut off by safety device when temperature control failed or excessive heating over set point.

- 2 Sizes
42 and 179 litre


- Sterilisation Options
1. UV Sterilisation: 30W UV light is placed on the chamber ceiling next to the circulation fan. The UV light
    does not reach the samples and sterilisation can be operated during culturing.
2. 125ºC Hot Air Sterilisation: Automatic 8 hours sterilisation process (5 hours for sterilisation and 3 hours
     for re-set at 37ºC, 5% CO2).
- Multi Gas Control: Multi gas supply (N2 and O2) is available for all CO2 incubators but model NB-203 is recommended due to high gas consumption when performing Hypoxia or Hyproxia.

- Cooling Control: Peltier cooling is applicable in models NB-203 and NB-203XL, 5ºC below room temperature but maximum lowest temperature is +15ºC.

- Copper Chamber: N-Biotek can customise the incubators with oxidising copper / copper-plated chamber for enhanced contamination protection.

- Monitoring System: Using internet network, the monitoring system has been designed to observe the status of the incubator even remotely

- Split Inner Door: Benefits of split inner glass doors are lower gas consumption, lower heat loss, fast recovery and easy separation for various samples. 5 door for NB-203 and 6 door for NB-203XL.

- Access port: For use of additional equipment in the incubator.

- Models with built-in rollers or orbital shaker
