Available in two sizes, the new triple gas incubators from IKS (Rosmalen, The Netherlands) offer a high quality culturing environment with excellent temperature accuracy and CO2 stability.
The larger incubator (IVS-9160GC) with 173 litre chamber and eight divided inner doors delivers a very good price performance ratio, while the small 33 litre model (IVS-9000GC) with six divided inner doors is ideal for use with lowered oxygen concentrations.
Both of these triple gas incubators provide a condensation-free chamber with rounded corners for easy cleaning and the well-designed interior is fully autoclavable. Very fast recovery times for temperature, CO2 and O2 ensure a highly stable environment for embryo growth, and an internal HEPA filter prevents contamination. Other features include a dual-beam (non-dispersive) infrared CO2 sensor and an access port allowing connection to an external XiltriX sensor.
Product Manager Han Weerdesteyn, commented: ‘Many IVF laboratories have moved to using lowered O2 concentrations to improve the viability of the growing embryos. IKS triple gas (CO2/O2) incubators fit very well with the needs of these laboratories, being able to control both the CO2 and O2 level of the incubator. These very stable and affordable, condensation-free incubators provide the best possible environment for growing embryos.’
