MIC-101 ELIMINATES THE EDGE EFFECT. Evaporation of media in
multiwell plates, placed in continuous flow CO2
incubators, can exceed 15% to 25% in outside and corner wells, respectively.
The wells of these plates are being exposed to dramatic changes
in pH, nutrient and salt concentrations.
Because there is no airflow in the controlled environment of the
Modular Incubator Chamber (MIC-101), evaporation is eliminated.
Each well within a multiwell plate retains its original composition
throughout the entire experiment, thus eliminating the edge
effect. Placing your multiwell plates in the MIC-101 will
dramatically increase cell viability and at the same time reducing
Now you can count on reproducible results with the Modular Incubator
Chamber and at the same time eliminate variability and reduce
contamination. The MIC-101 is designed so your cells will no longer
be subject to a changing environment. Inside the sealed unit,
temperature, humidity, and gas concentrations remain constant.
Your plates are also isolated from potential contaminants stemming
from the unsterile environment of your continuous flow incubator.
The MIC-101 allows you to perform all your experiments under
the exact conditions required. You can vary gas concentrations,
humidity, or temperature depending on your needs. Though the unit
is compact enough to transport easily, it is also large enough
to hold a variety of plastic ware.
Easy to Use: Simply flush with the desired gas mixture,
seal, and place the MIC-101 at the appropriate temperature.
Multi-purpose trays hold all types of microculture/multiwell
plates, petri or tissue culture dishes, T.C. flasks and test tubes.
Chamber and tray components are made of clear high-test polycarbonate.
Units can be interlocked and stacked to conserve space. Dimensions
of units: O.D.-30.5 cm (12), height-11.9 cm (4.7).
