Evaporation of media in multiwell plates, placed in continuous flow CO
2 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 experimental variability.

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”).
