The Carolina™ CO2 Incubator is the smallest, most economical incubator for applications requiring a CO2 gas atmosphere. Its small footprint makes it ideal for use inside of biological safety cabinets, isolating sensitive cultures, or for any laboratory simply trying to conserve space. Temperature and CO2 level are digitally adjustable and displayed in real time on the large LED control panel. The panel also features a Cal function for easy temperature and CO2 calibration.
Humidity (up to 80%) can be added to the chamber by inserting the included stainless-steel humidity reservoir. The CO2 level is constantly monitored using dual-beam infrared sensing technology. In the event of a drop in CO2 or temperature, audible and visual alarms are triggered, notifying the user of the error. The unit has a thick layer of insulation for efficiency and can maintain temperature levels within 10% of the set parameter for up to 1 hr after power has been stopped. Each unit comes with a 12-V DC vehicle adapter for mobile operation. A CO2 tank and regulator are needed, but not included. The regulator is sold separately as the Carolina™ CO2 Incubator Gas Regulator (item #701290).
