180°C high heat sterilisation
Dual heat sterilisation utilises the incubator’s two heaters during the 180°C sterilisation process, which takes 11 hours. There is no effect on temperature inside stacked incubators due to low heat dissipation so cell culturing can continue uninterrupted. No need to remove inner parts like the CO2 sensor and UV light, or recalibrate after sterilisation, therefore laboratory processes are more efficient with less incubator downtime.
The dry heat sterilisation cycle is controlled through the incubator microprocessor control system. The outer door is locked automatically upon initiation of the sterilisation cycle and unlocked upon completion.
