The Thermo Scientific™ Heracell™ VIOS CO2incubator 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.

Direct Heat Chamber

  • Choice of 165L (5.8 cu.ft.) or 255L (9 cu.ft.) electropolished stainless steel or solid copper chamber with compact footprint, easily stackable
  • Standard left hand door swing, reversible door swing for added flexibility

THRIVE Active Airflow

  • In-chamber fan gently distributes clean, humidified air throughout the chamber ensuring homogeneous conditions
  • Fast recovery of all parameters ten minutes or less for stable culturing conditions
  • Auto-stop function disables fan operation during door openings to minimize air exchange

ISO 5 HEPA Filtration

  • In-chamber HEPA continuously filters the entire chamber air volume every 60 seconds
  • ISO 5 clean room air quality is achieved in the culture chamber within five minutes
  • Continuous protection by minimizing ability for contaminants to settle on interior surfaces

Protected Humidity Reservoir

  • Directly heated water reservoir provides stable high relative humidity levels, preventing culture desiccation
  • Cover limits particles and spilled media from settling into the reservoir
  • Condensation free inner chamber, prevents a breeding ground for contaminant
  • 5X faster humidity recovery than traditional water pan designs
  • For easier water handling, humidity reservoir may be filled or drained without the removal of shelves or cultures

In situ sensors and probes

  • Dual temperature probes for over temperature protection with operational back up
  • Choice of thermal conductivity (TC) with rH compensation or single beam, dual wavelength infrared (IR) CO2 sensor
  • O2 control ranges 1 to 21% (hypoxic) and 5 to 90% (hyperoxic)

Steri-Run, high temperature defection cycle

  • Overnight cycle simplifies cleaning and eliminates the need for separate autoclaving of parts
  • 180°C cycle assures uniform 6-log sterilization on all chamber surfaces eliminating biological contaminants

Intuitive, interactive iCAN™ Touchscreen Control

  • Convenient on-screen user prompts and reminders for easy navigation
  • Selectable languages simplify operation: English, Spanish, German, French, Italian, Japanese and Mandarin
  • Visibility to changes in culture environment on performance graphs and error and data logs
