In some procedures, cells must be maintained, or cultured during periods that ranges from a few hours to many weeks. That is why when it comes to cultivation you need to have a CO2 incubator, a device in which not only the temperature, but also the humidity and carbon dioxide content, must be controllable. It is essential to maintain the atmosphere in a CO2 incubator to protect the samples.
There are a number of incubators that are supported by a heated air jacket and in some cases by a water jacket. These elements ensure an even temperature distribution and temperature stability. Another factor these elements guarantee is the rapid recovery time after the door has been opened. Finally, the maintenance of the temperature after a power failure is also guaranteed. On the other hand, the air jacket prevents condensation from forming.
