Midi 40 CO2 Incubators Provide Bench-Top Culturing

Thermo Fisher Scientific has brought out a smaller capacity Thermo Scientific Midi 40 CO2 incubator, which delivers the reliable culturing performance of a full-sized incubator in a small footprint. The Midi 40 is ideal for researchers requiring separate undisturbed incubation conditions due to the contamination risk associated with shared incubators or lack of available space.

Additional benefits include reduced energy and gas consumption, as well as lower heat output, which helps laboratories lower operational costs and conserve resources. The incubation parameters of the Midi 40 can be easily managed using the incubator's IntrLogic II user interface, which features a bright, highly visible vacuum fluorescent display and an easy-to-navigate membrane touchpad.

The unit also incorporates a non-corrosive stainless-steel chamber, with 1.4 cubic feet (40 litres) of culture space, and a heated humidity pan to generate relative humidity values of up to 95 per cent. Rapid recovery rates promote optimal cell growth, and efficient direct heating design provides accurate temperature control with a uniformity of 0.1C.

The Midi 40 CO2 incubator is supplied with RS485 signal output for convenient data capture, and it includes an adjustable audible and visual alarm to alert the user to any significant changes to the incubation conditions. The easily stackable Thermo Scientific Midi 40 CO2 incubator is ideal for cell culturing scientists that need smaller, discrete workspaces or that require smaller sample throughput.
