Planer's NEW CT37stax High Capacity Benchtop Incubator
State of art new multi chamber benchtop incubator
Planer has launched the NEW CT37stax multi chamber benchtop incubator at the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology (ESHRE) Congress in Geneva on 3rd July 2017. The CT37stax incubator complements the existing range of well-established Planer benchtop incubators.
Flexible, modular design
The CT37stax high capacity incubator has been designed using the best features of the existing technology and incorporating these with a mix of innovative new features to provide a state of art new multi chamber benchtop incubator fit for the demands of the modern laboratory. The CT37stax’s unique modular design provides the flexibility for purchasers to invest in an incubator configured specifically to meet the demands of each individual laboratory.
Optimum environment for success
The CT37 stax incubator's highly accurate environmental regulation system ensures optimal clinical conditions inside each individual incubation chamber, independently, minimising the stress placed on the cell under culture and increasing the chance of success. If required each individual chamber can be humidified independently to help prevent cell dehydration during incubation.
Cost effective solution
The space saving design of the CT37stax incubator provides the highest dish capacity of any benchtop incubator currently available whilst using 30% less space in a laboratory. Its modular design allows the user to configure the incubator to meet the needs of the laboratory. Additional chambers can be added too, enabling the laboratory’s capacity to grow without the need to purchase a new incubator.
Incubator management made easy
The CT37stax is supplied with the Planer Incubator Management Software (PIMS). This operates as both the full control interface for multiple CT37stax incubators but also can be used as a management system for all Planer incubators operated with the laboratory. The intuitive and user-friendly interface allows full control of multiple CT37stax units from a single PC anywhere in the laboratory.
Comprehensive protection built-in
The CT37stax incubator is packed with comprehensive alarm and monitoring features. Multiple parameters (temperature, gas flow, lid open, lid unlocked, power supply, carbon dioxide and communication status) of each incubation chamber are constantly monitored with audible and visual alarms, both locally on the incubator and via the PIMS application, alerting users to any issues.
The CT37stax multi chamber incubator incorporates many features designed to improve work processes and work flow in the laboratory. The incubator, even with all six incubation chambers installed, can be sited inside most flow hoods found in modern laboratories. Having the incubator situated next to the microscope reduces the risks associated with dish movement.
