Embryos@fe i-REF Series
High Retention Efficiency Cabinet – designed in accordance with EN 12469:2000

EuroClone is proud to introduce the New EmbryoS@fe i-REF a high retention efficiency recirculating cabinet engineered according to the EN 12469:2000 European Standard for Microbiological Safety Cabinets. This innovative unit provides the highest standards of Operator and Environmental Protection within a working environment dedicated to human Assisted Reproduction Techniques.

  • Working environment dedicated to human assisted Reproduction Techniques.
  • Designed according to EN12469:2000 for Microbiological Safety Cabinets.
  • ISO 14644 Class 5 working environment cleanliness (equivalent to Class 100).
  • Choice of built-In microscopes with ergonomically integrated controls.
  • Micro CO2 incubators can be integrated inside the cabinet.
  • Integrated LCD monitor built-in on the back wall of the microbiology safety cabinets.
  • ThermoHeat Technology – heated built in work surfaces & sample glass stages.
  • HRE Technology – ensures retention at front aperture = 105.

Heated Built In Work Surface – ThermoHeat Technology

ThermoHeat Techonolgy is EuroClone exclusive heating technology based on an inert polymer heating matrix derived from aerospace applications. It ensures uniform heating without thermal shocks and overshooting even when colder items are placed on the warm area.

Multiple temperature sensors in conjunction with a specifically developed control unit based on PID (Proportional Integral Derivative) self-tuning technology offers optimised and extremely accurate temperature controlled performances of the heated built-in surfaces at a specified set point (temperature accuracy – overall variation ± 0.4°C)

The heated area is clearly marked to ensure the most comfortable working conditions.

Heated Built In Sample Glass Stage – ThermoHeat Technology

Based on ThermoHeat Technology with PID control unit, the built-in heated glass stage offers stable temperature conditions for the embryos during microscope observation.

Main Control Panel
  • Continuous display of working conditions and front barrier airflow.
  • Multilevel alarms (visual and acoustic) with redundancy functions.
  • Permanent monitoring of HEPA filter life span.
  • Fully automatic UV-light cycle programming and
  • Switch for warming surface(s) / glass sample stage(s).
  • Fluorescent lamp switch.
  • Electrical socket(s) switch.

Temperature & Microscope Control Boards
  • Ergonomically integrated into the work surface for operator comfort.
  • LED screen offers clear display of temperature value.
  • Remote controls for microscope: on/off, brightness and contrast functions.

Integrated LCD Monitor
  • 19″ LCD Monitor built-in on the back wall of the cabinet and protected by an easily cleanable safety glare-free glass cover.
  • Monitor housing is designed to avoid any airflow disturbance
  • Offers connectivity to microscope camera(s) (number of cameras depends on workstation type) and / or external PC (via USB ports).

Integrated CO2 Incubator
  • Embryos@fe i-REF series can be provided with a dedicated housing for Micro CO2 incubators that allows optimal working conditions inside the cabinet providing ready at hand samples and reducing access to large CO2 incubators in the laboratory.
