    Sterisonic GxP Series Cell Culture Incubator w/ SafeCell UV & H20 Vapor Sterilization - Panasonic MCO-38AIC(UVH) Features:

    Sterilization and Decontamination

    • The unique Sterisonic GxP H2O2 sterilization system limits downtime to less than three hours when total chamber sterilization with verification is desired.
    • All interior components and CO2 sampling loop are sterilized in situ; no need for removal and autoclaving.
    • Active Background Contamination Control fights contamination while cell culture protocols are in process.
    • The patented SafeCell UV system scrubs interior airflow to destroy airborne and humidity pan contaminants.
    • Exclusive InCu SaFe copper-enriched stainless steel interior surfaces assure constant germicidal protection

    CO2 Control

    • Panasonic proprietary single-beam, dual detector infrared (IR2) CO2 sensor delivers precise CO2 control, quick recovery following door openings, and auto sampling with no moving parts.
    • Continuous zero calibration is standard.
    • An optional semi automatic, one-point calibration system is available. Catalog No. MCO-SG, see accessories.

    Control and Monitoring

    • The Sterisonic GxP control and information center includes an intuitive pop-up menu, high resolution LCD for inputs, outputs and performance at-a-glance.
    • Multi-point data logging offers push-button graphical display.
    • An optional PC interface permits remote transmission for GMP/GLP protocols as required.
    • Precise PID logic controls and adjusts to all temperature and CO2 setpoints and alarm parameters.

    Cabinet Design

    • High volume, low profile cabinets are stackable with field-reversible doors.
    • Interior components and adjustable shelves are configured for easy access.

    Hydrogen Peroxide Vapor Sterilization

    • The use of H2O2 sterilization in biological safety cabinets and barrier isolators is a popular alternative to ethylene oxide (EtO) as a safer, more efficient decontamination method. H2O2 has long been widely used in the pharmaceutical industry. In aerospace research, H2O2 is used to sterilize satellites. The FDA has recently granted 510(k) clearance to use H2O2 in individual medical device manufacturing applications. EtO criteria outlined in ANSI/AAMI/ISO 14937 may be used as a validation guideline.

    The Sterisonic GxP Design Permits Safe, Effective H2O2 Sterilization

    Unlike conventional incubators, unique features of the Panasonic Sterisonic GxP incubator permit use of the H2O2 process in situ with complete safety, zero impact on adjacent equipment or the environment, and speed to return the incubator to service.

    • The H2O2 sterilization process functions with the patented Panasonic SafeCell UV system. Following a seven-minute H2O2 vaporization, circulation and dwell cycle, vaporization is stopped and the SafeCell UV lamp turned ON for up to ninety minutes.
    • When exposed to UV light, the H2O2 vapor breaks down into water and oxygen, leaving only traces of water droplets. These droplets automatically condense onto a naturally cooler section of the interior floor for easy wipe-up.
    • Throughout the entire cycle the Sterisonic GxP airflow system continues to gently circulate interior air assuring 100 percent vapor contact with all interior surfaces, ultimately creating a serial dilution of H2O2 as it passes over the UV lamp.
    • Orientation of interior sample ports of the single beam, dual detector IR CO2 sensor creates a slight Venturi flow through the sample chamber, permitting total sterilization of the CO2 system at the same time.
    • Shape and location of interior components such as shelves, shelf brackets, plenum covers and the humidity pan permit the components to remain in the chamber during the sterilization process, conveniently bypassing the need for a separate autoclave cycle.
    • Once the cycle is complete, the door locking system is released; the inner door can be opened, interior components repositioned and the incubator is returned to service.

    Sterisonic GxP Performance and Availability Delivers Best Value

    The documented two-hour in situ H2O2 sequence puts the fully sterilized Sterisonic GxP available and ready for use quicker than any other incubator worldwide.

    Intelligent Interface through Integrated LCD Control with Graphical Display

    The Sterisonic GxP incubator is managed by an integrated microprocessor controller with LCD graphical display to simplify all incubator functions

    • Stable temperature and humidity conditions are achieved through a combination of performance systems supervised by the controller complete with alarm, programming, calibration and diagnostic protocols.
    • The Sterisonic GxP control and information center includes an intuitive pop-up menu, high resolution LCD for inputs, outputs and performance at-a-glance.
    • Multi-point data logging offers push-button graphical display.
    • An optional PC interface permits remote transmission for GMP/GLP protocols as required.
    • Selected performance histories can be acquired in graphical format for easy interpretation.
    • Precise PID logic controls and adjusts to all temperature and CO2 setpoints and alarm parameters.
    • A range of setpoint, alarm and programmable inputs are established through pop-up menus and function keys.
    • Standard parameters are factory-set for quick start-up, and all parameters can be changed as required.
    • Logged parameters can be exported to remote databases, off-site alarm or data capture systems through optional communications board for compliance monitoring; see accessories.
    • A remote alarm terminal mounted at the rear of the cabinet can be connected to an external alarm system.
    • Tactile feedback, touch pad data shift and entry keys simplify operation.
    • The control panel is center mounted in the outer door for easy access and viewing.
