MCO-18AIC
Specifications

Fast recovery of the CO2 level is due to the effective combination of an infrared CO2
sensor and PID (Proportional, Integrated and Differential) control. This incubator offers a
long-awaited performance level with a more stable CO2 environment to reliably function
for heavy usage situations that require frequent door openings.
MCO-18AIC:
approx. 3 minutes

CO2 level fluctuations in chamber when door openings


of 30-second duration are made at 10-minute intervals

Preventive Contamination Control


InCu saFe interior chamber with fully
rounded corners inhibits bacteria growth
continuously. An automatic ultraviolet
lamp (option) can also eliminate contaminants in the circulating air and water in
the humidity pan without affecting cell
cultures. The two powerful measures
result in complete contamination control.

Improved Temperature Stability

with DHA System


Three independently controlled heaters
plus SANYOs proprietary air jacket
structure provides a high-precision
temperature environment.

The main heater provides precise temperature control.


The bottom heater warms the distilled water and

controls chamber humidity.


The outer door heater prevents condensation on the

inner door and facilitates quick temperature recovery


after door openings.

Airflow and water pan sterilization using a UV system (option)

The reversible door allows right or left


opening depending on the installation
space and how other peripheral equipment
are positioned. Each corner of the door has
a special grip for easier opening.

System (option)
This system automatically switches from
the primary to secondary gas cylinder
when a CO2 gas level drop in the chamber
is detected. The in-use gas cylinder is
confirmed on the control panel.
