At only 13" wide, the Benchmark Scientific MyTemp™ Mini Digital CO₂ Incubator is the smallest and most economical incubator for applications requiring CO₂ gas control. Its small footprint makes the incubator ideal for use inside of biological safety cabinets, isolating sensitive cultures or for any laboratory simply trying to conserve bench space. With a thick layer of high efficiency insulation surrounding the chamber, the incubator is also ideal for transportation of cells. Once power has been disconnected, the incubator maintains temperature levels within 10% of the set parameter for up to 1 hour. If disconnected from the CO₂ supply, CO₂ percentage decreases by approximately 1% every 30 mininutes. In addition each model includes a 12V vehicle power adapter for operating the instrument in a car, boat, etc.
- Digital control of temperature and CO₂
- Personal sized, 13 x 14.5″ footprint (20L)
- Accepts bottles and flasks up to 2L
- Includes 2 stainless steel shelves
- Dual beam infrared CO₂ sensor
- 2 Year warranty
Both temperature and CO₂ percentage are digitally adjustable and displayed in real time on the large LED control panel. This panel also features a “Cal” function, for easy in-lab calibration of the temperature or CO₂. In addition, humidity (up to 80%) can be added to the chamber by inserting the included (stainless steel) humidity reservoir.
The CO₂ level is constantly monitored using dual beam infrared sensing technology. In the event of a drop in CO₂, audible and visual alarms are triggered, notifying the user of the error.
Despite its small size, the incubator features a relatively large 20L chamber with the capacity for flasks and bottles up to 2 liters. Two removable, stainless-steel shelves are included. The shelves are perforated to improve airflow within the chamber.
