C16 CO2 Incubator

Small Volume CO2 Incubator

The Labotect CO2 C16 Incubator is a very compact, space-saving unit. it has an inner volume capacity of 16 litres which makes ideal for laboratories who are looking to optimise limited space environments. The Incubator C16 is designed to provide the environmental conditions to cultivate mammalian cells and tissues and other cell types. The Incubator C16 creates, in its inner chamber, a tightly controlled atmosphere with regard to the key parameters temperature, CO2 and relative humidity. Its highly stable temperature levels and gas concenteration make it ideally suited for cultivating biological samples in research and medical applications.

Key advantages of the C16

  • Very compact and space-saving construction
  • Over-all heating from interior and door for absolutely homogeneous temperature distribution
