Controlled Environments in Research – The Importance of CO2 in Incubators

The aim of research is to be able to explore as many different theories as possible, then record and report on the outcome, and write-up ‘next-steps’ or recommendations for further research. Obviously this is a simplistic explanation of what the whole process is and what it includes, but in essence is correct.

When it comes to laboratories conducting cell culture and tissue culture research and work, having complete control over the testing environments is a necessity for reliable results. Incubators are ideal for when you need total control over testing environments, ensuring precise and consistent temperatures are maintained.

CO2 Incubators are ideal for when environmental control needs to be stringently monitored. CO2 incubators have been a mainstay in traditional biology labs across the world, because they are able to provide stable environments to mimic a cell’s natural environment: pH of 7.2 to 7.5, temperature of 37°C, and a relative humidity of about 95 percent. The CO2 concentration, about 5 percent, is controlled to match physiologic conditions and to maintain a constant pH. [1]

Bioline’s range of ‘Culture Safe’ CO2 Incubators are ideal for any laboratory environment. Each model boasts class leading technology and design, and smart features to ensure maximum results. Features such as:

–      No fan to eliminate cross contamination and evaporation

–      Up to 200 degree dry heat sterilization

–      Antibacterial biocide paint
