Exclusive iCAN simplifies operation and enables rapid access of important information for each critical parameter in the incubator. iCAN provides trend analysis for convenient evaluation of your unit’s performance.

Product facts and notices

With our Heracell i, your valuable samples will be:

  • Secured: Our innovative ContraConmoist heat decontamination technology is proven for simple and worry-free cleaning and operation.
  • Protected: Proven contamination control is offered with our unique 100% pure solid copper interiors – antimicrobial protection on contact, naturally.
  • Thriving: Designed to provide optimal growth conditions, delivering superior parameter recovery rates that enhance cell growth.

Unique gas-tight segmented door option

For additional contamination protection, all Heracell incubators now offer an optional three door (Heracell 150i) or six door (Heracell 240i) inner glass door assembly, which allows access to defined sections of the incubator without
disturbing the entire inner atmosphere. This minimizes recovery times, gas usage and the risk of contamination.
