Esco CO2 incubators are equipped with the SteriSafe™ ULPA filtration system to maintain a contaminant-free chamber. This study investigates the efficiency of the SteriSafe™ ULPA filtration system in achieving ISO Class 5 inside the chamber.
ISOCIDE™ powder coating is one mechanism that aims to control the growth of contaminants. Another method is the use of stainless steel has long been used as a material for laboratory tools and equipment. This paper evaluates the antimicrobial effectiveness of ISOCIDE™ versus that of stainless steel.
Esco CelSafe® CO₂ Incubator is equipped with 180°C dry heat sterilization feature. This feature has been evaluated for its effectiveness against some microorganisms. More than 6 logs of bacterial spore and vegetative cells, and 5 logs of fungi spore are totally killed after being exposed to the sterilization cycle for half time.
Microbial contamination, brought about by bacteria, viruses, yeast, and other microorganisms, poses a major dilemma in cell culture. One of the anticontamination schemes employed in CO2 incubators is the reduction of contamination in the air by using filters. This paper presents the performance of the ULPA filter in removing air contaminants in a CO2 incubator chamber.
This paper presents the data gathered from the evaluation of the performance of the Esco CO2 incubator with suppressed O2 capability in low ambient temperature. This study also provides evidence that this Esco CO2 incubator will not have condensation at such temperature.
Various scientific applications require the addition of nitrogen to the CO2 incubator to control oxygen levels. CO2 incubators with such capability are known as tri-gas incubators. This study evaluates the performance of the CelCulture® as a tri-gas incubator.
