Heracell™ VIOS 160i Tri-Gas CO2 Incubator

165 L, Electropolished Stainless Steel

CO2 Sensor: IR Sensor

O2 Range (Oxygen Concentration): 1 to 21%

Temperature Range: Ambient +3°C to 55°C

Direct heat chamber

  • – 165L (5.8 cu.ft.) electropolished stainless steel chamber with compact footprint, easily stackable
  • – Standard right hand door swing, field reversible by qualified service support

THRIVE active airflow

  • – In-chamber fan gently distributes clean, humidified air throughout the chamber ensuring homogeneous conditions
  • – Fast recovery of all parameters in 10 minutes or less for stable culturing conditions
  • – Auto-stop function disables fan operation during door openings to minimize air exchange

ISO Class 5 HEPA filtration

  • – In-chamber HEPA continuously filters the entire chamber air volume every 60 seconds
  • – ISO Class 5 clean room air quality is achieved in the culture chamber within 5 minutes
  • – Continuous protection minimizes airborne contaminants settling on interior surfaces

Covered Integrated humidity reservoir

  • – Directly heated water reservoir provides stable high relative humidity levels, preventing culture desiccation
  • – Cover limits particles and spilled media from settling into the reservoir, keeping water clean
  • – Separating water provides a condensation free incubation chamber, limiting areas for contaminants to breed
  • – 5X faster humidity recovery than traditional water pan designs
  • – Easy water handling: humidity reservoir may be filled or drained without removing shelves or cultures
  • – Water level sensor indicates when a refill is needed

Steri-Run on-demand high temperature sterilization cycle

  • – Independently validated overnight cycle ensures complete elimination of all biological contaminants
  • – 180°C cycle designed for uniform 12-log sterilization on all chamber surfaces
  • – Simplifies cleaning and eliminates the need for separate autoclaving and reassembly of components

Intuitive, interactive iCAN touchscreen control

  • – Bright LED screen to monitor all incubator interactions
  • – Provides visibility to changes in culture environment with performance trend graphing, error and usage logs
  • – Convenient on-screen user prompts and reminders for easy navigation
  • – Selectable languages simplify operation: English, Spanish, German, French, Italian, Japanese and Mandarin

In situ sensors and probes designed for precise control

  • – Dual temperature probes for over temperature protection with operational back up
  • – Thermal conductivity (TC) CO2 sensor with rH compensation designed for fast recovery and stable operation
