Raising Research by Intelligent Design

NuAire’s In-VitroCell ES (Energy Saver) NU-5800 Series Direct Heat Microbiological CO2 Incubators provide a reliable controlled in-vitro environment for optimum tissue cell culture growth through the precise control of humidity, temperature, and CO2 gas while minimising the potential for contamination creating the most reliable conditions. The chamber also provides an environment for the storage and preservation of gametes and animal tissue cell cultures intended for research at body temperature or under hypoxic conditions.

The NuTouch Electronic Control System is a user-friendly colour touch screen available in English, Spanish, German, and French. The touch panel permits operator entry of data, designed to service the precise control requirements of the chamber environment providing optimum programmable conditions for culture growth, operating control parameters, and status indicators. On-screen descriptions are available to clarify unknown parameter icons. Step-by-step directions aid users through procedures such as calibration and how to run a sterilisation cycle.

A microprocessor-based, non-dispersive, single source dual wave infrared (IR) sensor controls CO2 levels within the chamber. The wavelengths used are absorbed by only CO2 making the measurement insensitive to other components such as water vapour. Advanced design provides a very stable output minimising drift and requiring less frequent calibration.

Chamber walls are heated directly by heating elements on all six (6) sides of the growth chamber providing superior temperature uniformity. Dual temperature sensor probes monitor the growth chamber environment making necessary changes when needed. High-density insulation with a high “R” rating covers the complete outer surfaces of the incubator inner chamber.

Two heated sterilisation cycles can be selected to eradicate contaminating agents. The chamber will heat up to 95°C humidified decontamination or 145°C dry sterilisation.

The 7 cu. Ft. inner chamber is constructed of 16 gauge, type 304L, polished stainless steel using crevice-free construction, easily cleanable inert surface that does not promote biological growth. All shelves, shelf supports, and guide rails are easily removable and can be autoclaved separately.

Optional Feature: Add CuVerro® Antimicrobial Copper Surfaces to the incubator growth chamber and/or shelving to kill bacteria* to minimise potential incubator contamination. CuVerro® is laboratory tested and EPA registered. CuVerro® Antimicrobial Copper Surfaces kill more than 99.9% of bacteria* within two hours, and continues to kill 99% of bacteria* even after repeated contamination, when cleaned regularly.

* Laboratory testing shows that, when cleaned regularly, CuVerro® antimicrobial copper surfaces kill greater than 99.9% of the following bacteria within 2 hours of exposure: MRSA, Staphylococcus aureus, Enterobacter aerogenes, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and E. coli O157:H7. CuVerro® antimicrobial copper surfaces are a supplement to and not a substitute for standard infection control practices and have been shown to reduce microbial contamination, but do not necessarily prevent cross contamination; users must continue to follow all current infection control practices, including those practices related to cleaning and disinfection of environmental surfaces EPA Reg No 85353-5, EPA Est No 088257-MN-001.
