The Thermo Scientific Heracell VIOS CO2 incubator is specifically designed to deliver the performance reliability, ease of operation, and value required to support a range of culturing needs from basic research to the demanding, leading-edge applications, so you're ready for whatever comes next.

Better solutions for optimal cell growth. VIOS CO2 incubators with non-corrosive stainless-steel interior chambers provide the ideal in-vitro environment. They feature THRIVE Active Airflow, where an in-chamber fan distributes clean, humidified air throughout the chamber ensuring homogeneous conditions; fast recovery of all parameters in ten minutes or less for stable culturing conditions; and an auto-stop function that disables fan operation during door openings to minimize air exchange.

The VIOS CO2 incubators also have a protected humidity reservoir where directly heated water provides stable high relative humidity levels, preventing culture desiccation; a condensation-free inner chamber that prevents a breeding ground for contaminant; and 5X faster humidity recovery than traditional water pan designs.

The direct heat chamber has adjustable, perforated shelving, and a reversible exterior door for added flexibility. The in-chamber HEPA continuously filters the entire chamber air volume every 60 seconds, and ISO 5 clean room air quality is achieved in the culture chamber within five minutes.

The iCAN touchscreen control is a bright, door-mounted display for easy accessibility and viewing.  You can select between operation in English, Spanish, German, French, Italian, Japanese, and Mandarin.

Our technicians test CO2 incubators using a calibrated digital chart recorder to verify the accuracy of temperature controls and readouts, as well as using a Fyrite indicator to measure CO2 levels in the chamber. We replace any hardware or parts as is necessary and clean all incubators thoroughly prior to shipment.
