CO2 Cell Culture Incubator w/ SafeCell UV - Panasonic MCO-5M(UV) Features:
Continuous contamination control with inCu saFe interior and safeCell UV (option) technologies.
Space-saving design, triple stackable cabinet.
Perfect for incubating the cells of your patients and one-donor/one-chamber use, and for personal use in laboratories.
The new MCO-5M automatic air jacket multi-gas incubator provides precise CO2 and O2 level controls to realize a stable cell culture environment. It features multiple-patented technologies to safely achieve in-vitro performance. The compact design of the MCO-5M has a small footprint and allows 2 more units to be stacked, saving valuable space. The MCO-5M is ideally suited for one-donor/one-chamber use to incubate the cells of your patients, in-vitro fertilization, and for personal use in laboratories.
Preventive Contamination Control
InCu saFe copper-enriched stainless steel chamber with coved corners continuously inhibits bacteria growth on its surface. Airborne and water contaminants in the water pan can also be eliminated by patented safeCell UV, an automatic ozone-free ultraviolet lamp (option), without affecting cell cultures.
Even in a triple-stack configuration, the units are space-saving and low-profile, allowing for the most efficient use of laboratory space. There is also user-friendly access to the door-mounted control display panel.
The field reversible door can be set up for right-swing or left-swing door openings, allowing for multiple configurations during laboratory installation. A special door handle allows for easier door grab and opening in triple-stacked configurations.
Improved Temperature Stability with D.H.A. System
P.I.D. controlled 3-way heaters plus Panasonic's proprietary D.H.A. (Direct Heat and Air jacket) provides a high-precision temperature environment, and minimizes the risk of condensation now and in the future. The Panasonic D.H.A. System is patented with U.S. Patent Number 5519188.
Water Level Sensor
The humidity pan has an optical water level sensor to warn of low water level.
Automatic Gas Cylinder Switchover System
This system automatically switches from the primary to secondary gas cylinder when the O2 gas level does not change while an injection valve is open.
An optimal gas switchover for CO2 gas is also available. The in-use gas cylinder is confirmed on the control panel.
High Performance In Vitro Modeling
Stable temperature, humidity and CO2 density are achieved through a combination of performance systems supervised by a centralized microprocessor controller complete with alarm, programming, calibration and diagnostic protocols exportable to remote databases through optional communications ports for compliance monitoring.
In Vitro Fertilization Applications
Panasonic has received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA Reference K013703) to market the Panasonic Series CO2 incubators for in vitro fertilization applications.
