Miniature Microscope Incubators > CO2 Controllers


CO2 controller CO2-MI

Designed for live cell imaging and time-lapsed microscopy. For use with any custom enclosure and  miniature incubators, to regulate CO2 level from 0 to 20%.  Connects to a cylinder with compressed CO2 gas. The output connects directly to a gas port of the incubator or to a humidifier. Can provide up to 750sccm gas flow. The controller continuously senses CO2 concentration inside the incubator through CO2-UP attachment, which is small enough (69x29x25mm) to be placed inside custom enclosures. It can be also attached from outside. CO2 control at 5% level keeps pH of media constant. Simple to use: the controller ships calibrated for 5% level requirement (other CO2 ranges and higher flow output are available on request). Can be adjusted to fill incubators of different volumes (and custom chambers). The instrument not only controls gas content inside the incubator, but also brings the gas consumption to the minimum. Note: if using pre-mixed 5%CO2/95%O2 gas source - a different PC-MI controller is required.
