Wiggens – Biotron CO2 Shaking Incubator – WCI-650CH
Chamber volume: 650L, Range: Ambient 5-60℃
The WIGGENS shaking CO2 incubator is ideal for use in the fields of bio similar production, proteomics, crystallography, genomics, cell biology and new drug development. A large capacity CO2 incubator with separable long life shakers provide the optimum solution for cell culture in suspension
The Biotron internal chamber is subdivided into 3 compartments each holding a separable orbital shaker which can hold Erlenmeyer, cylindrical flasks or deepwell blocks. Dual beam Infra Red sensor provides precise CO2 control while the six side heating system ensures excellent temperature control and recovery and humidity An outstanding Air Circulation System ensures temperature uniformity within all compartments.
The unique patented orbital shakers are constructed with stainless steel to minimize contamination and aid cleaning Brushless magnetic plate induction design allows these shakers to be used in highly humid environments and operate vibration free without generating particulates. Noise free these powerful shakers can be used for many years with reliability guaranteed.
Growing cell suspension
The Biotron is designed to culture eukaryotic cells such as CHO, HEK, Hela etc. in suspension but can also be used as a static incubator if required.
Infra red sensor
Industry Standard Dual Beam Infra Red Sensor is used to maintain control of CO2 density
Pullout shaker platform
Platform of each shakers can be pulled out for loading flasks on each shakers efficiently
Sticky mat & various holders
The orbital shakers can be used with sticky mats or dedicated flask holder trays or universal flask/tube holder plate.
Individual shaker control
Each orbital shaker can be individually controlled by an external control panel.
Excellent temperature control
All 6 sides are directly heated and combined with PID control to ensure that temperatures are reached quickly and uniformity is maintained. Further the system combines forced air and natural convection to maintain the best temperature uniformity at al times.
High natural humidification
A deep and wide humidity tray allows a high and natural humidity to be generated.
Split inner glass doors
The internal chamber is separated into three compartments each with its own shelve, shaker and glass door. This design prevents excessive loss of heat and CO2 when removing flasks etc.
LED display of actual humidity in the chambers informs the user of time to supplement the water in the humidity tray
Auto restart function
Each shaker has an autostart function such that if the glass inner door to each compartment is opened the shaker in that compartment stops and starts again when the door is closed. Auto start is also enabled if there is a power cut.
A UV lamp sited next to the circulation fan works to sterilize the air in the incubator even during cell culturing, The UV lamp can be turned on or off by a switch on the front panel.
Stain resistant interior
The inner chamber and all orbital shakers are constructed with stainless steel SUS304 which is designed for use in GMP facility and is resistant to rust formation in high humidity conditions
A HEPA filter, located in post circulation fan, traps microbes and helps to maintain a sterile environment.
Larger growth vessels like 5 or 10 liter flasks can be accommodated by completely removing the shelves
