Trust ELPRO for precision temperature, humidity and CO2 data monitoring.
Incubators are used in laboratories to provide a controlled environment for safe and reliable growth of bacteria, tissue and cell cultures by regulating temperature, humidity, and often CO2. Monitoring the conditions inside an incubator is key to the success of the process. Since contamination is a major concern, the monitoring equipment (temperature & humidity probe) must also be cleaned and exchanged on a regular basis.
Several issues play a role in selecting the right data logger solution for an incubator:
Do you have a single incubator in your laboratory used to grow cell or tissue cultures? In the following video, we discuss the requirements and show three possible solutions for single installations.
You've got options! Below is a direct product comparison of two monitoring solutions for one single incubator.
If you just need compliant monitoring of temperature and humidity.
If you need compliant monitoring and also want remote alarming assurance when staff are off-site.
Do you operate many incubators in one building or are they in various locations? How do you manage access and where do you store the data? In this video we discuss the requirements and solutions for complex installations.
Below is a product comparison of three monitoring solutions suitable for many incubators and complex installations.
For virtual set-ups with single incubator distributed over multiple locations.
If you have a several incubators in the same building.
If you have multiple incubators and other equipment in one building and need everything on site – including the software/database.
Incubators used in a GMP or GLP environment to condition or store cell cultures or products must be qualified. Qualification is the process of proving that an incubator fulfills the intended purpose. It certifies that a device is fit for that purpose and that the temperature and humidity range are consistently maintained on every shelf.
