The IncuSafe Advantage - Active Background Decontamination - 1

In April 2018, our Biomedical Business Brand will change to PHCbi PanasonicThe IncuSafe AdvantageActive Background Decontamination Active Background Decontamination IncuSafe Incubators are designed to actively prevent contamination during cell culture. The unique, copper-enriched stainless steel alloy interior eliminates contamination and mitigates the effect of airborne contaminates that can be introduced through normal use. An optional, isolated, UV lamp decontaminates circulating air and water in the humidifying pan, without harming cultured cells. inCu-saFe Germicidal Interior The exclusive inCu-saFe copper-enriched stainless steel alloy interior in IncuSafe Incubators offers the germicidal properties of copper and the durability of stainless steel. Selected to provide passive germicidal protection without rust or corrosion, inCu-saFe expresses a natural germicidal effect inhibiting the growth of molds, fungi, mycoplasma and bacteria on its surface continuously. All interior components, including the air management plenum, humidity pan and fan assembly are easily removed without tools if required. When components are removed, all interior surfaces are exposed for conventional wipe down. InCu-saFe Interior combines the benefits of copper and stainless steel • Fights off surface contamination. • Does not corrode like solid copper surfaces. • Appearance and durability of stainless steel. • Standard feature in all IncuSafe CO2 & Multigas incubators. Competing Incubator with Copper Interiors • May corrode over time. • Humid environment may cause interior coating to turn into green cupric oxide, which may prove to be lethal to cell cultures. • Contamination is difficult to detect due to discoloration of interior surfaces. • Difficult to maintain and clean. The chart below demonstrates the germicidal properties of inCu-saFe copper enriched stainless steel alloy against four strains of mycoplasma. Experimental conditions 1. Mycoplasma suspension(105-106/mO is dropped on the test piece 2. Incubate at 37oC, 5%CO2 for 24 hours. 3.Re-suspend in fresh medium. 4.Incubate at 37oC, for 7 days. 5.If the Mycoplasma survives, the medium will change to a specific colour.

IncuSafe CO2 & Multigas Incubators SafeCell UV Lamp The programmable ultraviolet lamp, isolated from cell cultures, eliminates contaminants in the air-flow and water-pan without affecting cell cultures. Interior air motion is suspended when the door is opened, minimizing movement of room air contaminants into the chamber. • SafeCell UV inhibits the growth of mycoplasma, bacteria, molds, spores, yeasts and fungi without costly HEPA filters which accumulate contaminants in the chamber air. • Positioned behind the plenum an isolated beam of high intensity, ozone-free ultraviolet light destroys...
