  • Protect valuable samples while optimizing cell growth.
  • Thermo Scientific Heracell 240i CO2 Incubators with 100% copper chambers provide the ideal in vitro environment.
  • Clean, reliable and easy to use, they feature fast recovery characteristics and a convenient touchscreen user interface.
  • These large capacity models can accomodate shakers, roller bottle apparatus, and other small equipment.
  • Naturally easy to clean and maintain, 100% pure copper surfaces provide long service life and are safe for cultured cells.

Direct heat chamber:

  • 240L (8.4 cu. ft.) 100% solid copper chamber with compact footprint, easily stackable.
  • Standard left hand door swing, field reversible by qualified service support.
  • Minimal, easy-to-clean assembly with smooth inner chamber and rounded corners for easy cleaning.
  • In-chamber fan gently distributes conditioned, humidified air throughout the chamber ensuring homogeneous conditions.

In situ sensors and probes designed for precise monitoring:

  • Choice of TC (thermal conductivity) CO2 sensor for long, reliable operation or IR (infrared) CO2 sensor for monitoring when humidity and temperature are less predictable.
  • Dual temperature probes with over temperature protection.

Rapid response humidity reservoir:

  • Directly heated water reservoir designed to provide stable, high relative humidity, preventing culture desiccation.
  • Pan-less system provides recovery rates up to 5X faster than traditional water pans.
  • Water level sensor indicates when a refill is needed.

ContraCon 90°C moist heat disinfection cycle:

  • On-demand cycle simplifies cleaning and eliminates the need to separately autoclave components.
  • Operation is push-button simple and does not require removal of sensors or other components.
  • Independently validated to eliminate a wide range contaminants including bacteria, molds, fungal spores, and mycoplasmas.

Intuitive, interactive iCAN touchscreen control:

  • Bright LED screen allows monitoring of all incubator interactions.
  • Provides visibility to changes in culture environment with performance trend graphing, error and usage logs.
  • Convenient on-screen user prompts and reminders for easy navigation.
  • Selectable languages simplify operation: English, Spanish, German, French, and Italian.

Wireless Monitoring Solution:

  • Thermo Scientific DeviceLink HUB, our easy-to-install solution, works with the Thermo Fisher Cloud to monitor conditions inside your CO2 incubators.
  • DeviceLink HUB monitors chamber temperature, gas levels, alarms, and alerts from the incubator data output connection, RS-232 or USB.
  • Alarms and notifications are also sent to the user by email and mobile push notification.
  • DeviceLink HUB is an optional accessory for models with the iCAN touchscreen interface.
  • DeviceLink HUB is available in the following regions:
  • United States and Canada.
  • 28 members of the European Union.
  • Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, and Switzerland.
