Thermo Scientific Forma i160 Steri-Cycle CO2 Incubator

Achieve your next breakthrough. The Thermo Scientific™ Forma™ Steri-Cycle™ i60 CO2 Incubator with stainless-steel chamber is specifically designed to deliver the performance reliability, ease of operation, and value required to support a range of culturing needs from basic research to the demanding, leading-edge applications, so you're ready for whatever comes next.
With better solutions for optimal cell growth these CO2 incubators, with non-corrosive stainless-steel interior chambers, provide the ideal in-vitro environment.

The Forma Steri-Cycle CO2 Incubator is by far the most popular CO2 Incubator in the Irish market and has been for many years. The latest state of the art model has now been launched and we already have a number of installations.  The Steri-Cycle CO2 Incubator is available in stainless steel or copper lined and now has a thermal conductivity CO2 sensor with relative humidity compensation.

The incubator has an 180°C cycle which assures uniform 6-log sterilisation on all chamber surfaces, eliminating biological contaminants.  It has an intuitive interactive iCAN Touch Screen for easy navigation of Parameters.

Product Specification

Direct Heat Chamber 

  • 165L electropolished stainless steel chamber with compact footprint, easily stackable 
  • Standard right hand door swing, reversible door swing for added flexibility

THRIVE  Active Airflow  

  • In-chamber fan gently distributes clean, humidified air throughout the chamber ensuring  homogeneous conditions 
  • Fast recovery of all parameters ten minutes or less for stable culturing conditions 
  • Auto-stop function disables fan operation during door openings to minimize air exchange

ISO 5 HEPA Filtration 

  • In-chamber HEPA continuously filters the entire chamber air volume every 60 seconds
  • ISO 5 clean room air quality is achieved in the culture chamber within 5 minutes
  • Continuous protection by minimizing ability for contaminants to settle on interior surfaces

Protected Humidity Reservoir 

  • Directly heated water reservoir provides stable high relative humidity levels, preventing culture desiccation 
  • Cover limits particles and spilled media from settling into the reservoir 
  • Condensation free inner chamber, prevents a breeding ground for contaminant
  • 5X faster humidity recovery than traditional water pan designs 
  • For easier water handling, humidity reservoir may be filled or drained without the removal of shelves or cultures

In situ Sensors and Probes

  • Dual temperature probes  for over temperature protection with operational back up
  • Choice of thermal conductivity (TC) with rH compensation or single beam, dual wavelength infrared (IR) CO2 sensor
  • O2 control ranges 1 to 21% (hypoxic) and 5 to 90% (hyperoxic)
  • Overnight cycle simplifies cleaning and eliminates the need for separate autoclaving of parts
  • 180°C cycle assures uniform 6-log sterilization on all chamber surfaces eliminating biological contaminants

Intuitive, interactive iCAN™ Touchscreen Control

  • Convenient on-screen user prompts and reminders  for easy  navigation
  • Selectable languages simplify operation: English, Spanish, German, French, Italian, Japanese and Mandarin
  • Visibility to changes in culture environment on performance graphs and error and data logs
