    Personal Series Compact CO2 Incubator - Panasonic MCO-5AC Features:

    When arrayed in triple stackable configurations, this unit meets GLP requirements by helping to avoid patient-to-patient cross contamination in individualized patient-specific clinical incubation applications.

    • Single Chamber
    • Compact, Triple Stacking
    • Professional cell culture CO2 incubator with inCu saFe and SafeCell UV integrated contamination control technology.
    • Automatic CO2 Cylinder Switchover System
    • Ergonomic Design (Compact, Triple Stacking)
    • TC Sensor System

    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.

    Ergonomic Design

    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.

    Field-reversible Door

    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.

    Benefits Summary

    Contamination Control

    inCu saFe copper-enriched stainless steel chamber construction helps inhibit the growth of mycoplasma, bacteria, molds, yeasts and fungi without costly HEPA air scrubbers which accumulate contaminants in the chamber, or disruptive, high temperature decontamination schemes which can actually encourage growth of heat resistant thermophilic and hyperthermophilic microorganisms in vitro.

    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 database

    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.
