Designed to provide a stable and convenient environment for cell and tissue culture, taking the most stringent needs of the cell biologist, for both continuous and batch cultures, into account. The S@feGrow 188 maintains an accurate CO2 gas concentration, uniform temperature and a consistently high level of humidity providing a stable culturing environment, even for most critical applications like IVF and Hybridoma cultures.

Other Key Features:
Fully automatic 12 hours decontamination cycle
A fully tested “on demand” automatic decontamination cycle, heating up to 125°C, is a standard feature assuring peace of mind when starting a culturing cycle. One advantage of the system is that there is no need to remove any of the fixtures or fittings from within the chamber. The total decontamination cycle is run overnight, with a 1.5-2.5 hour temperature ramp up time, a 4 hour exposure time and a 5-7 hour temperature ramp down time, totalling between 11-12 hours in average, depending upon the room temperature. At the end of the cycle, normal control of the CO2 concentration is automatically resumed, with the only action to be performed by the user prior to start up is the addition of sterile water into the humidity tray.
Precise control and recovery of set temperature

Image PG-4 –> right
The accurate and precise temperature is maintained by means of a 4 section independently controlled and validated direct heater system. A total of 73 metres of heating elements ensures the even heating of all internal surfaces (chamber, front frame and door inner side) within the CO2 incubator. In addition, a multi R-T curve matched thermistor control system can measure and control temperature to within to 0.1°C of the set value. Over-temperature protection is independent of the controls and inhibits all heaters when the temperature rises by 1 degree above the programmed value. The recovery of set temperature (following the door being open for 15 seconds), occurs within 5 minutes, thus protecting cultures against thermal shocks (see Graph)
