CO2 incubators are a mainstay of laboratory scale cell culture. Most applications call for operation at +37 degrees Celsius, 5.0% CO2 concentration, and 85% to 95% relative humidity.

Selecting the right incubator to provide the cell culture environment calls for consideration of not only the conditions to be achieved for temperature, relative humidity, and CO2, but how those conditions will be maintained. Stability and accuracy are important, and the way in which an incubator achieves the environmental conditions is worth examination when selecting an incubator. Additionally, determining what operational features and capabilities might be beneficial for increasing workplace efficiency or reducing maintenance can help in selecting the incubator that will best serve your needs.

Esco, globally recognized innovator in the design and manufacture of a range of laboratory equipment, has produced a guide for selecting CO2 incubators. It provides knowledge and guidance about chamber construction, sensors, heating, chamber air movement, filtration, decontamination, and more.

The guide is provided below for your use. Share your laboratory equipment requirements and challenges with lab equipment specialists, combining your own process knowledge and experience with their product application expertise to develop effective solutions.
