|Product Code:||using the IEQ Chek™ monitor|
Within medical or research facilities, lab incubators are special environments where it is critical to maintain the chamber atmosphere to ensure optimum growth conditions for cell cultures and tissue samples. The incubators need to provide constant temperature, humidity and Carbon Dioxide (CO2) levels to control the correct atmosphere for cell or tissue cultures, embryos for IVF or stem cell research. The incubator units typically have a built-in monitoring system for CO2 while more sophisticated units have additional monitoring for Oxygen (O2). Because it is critical that these levels are kept constant, the incubators require a way to verify that the levels shown by the internal monitoring system are correct.
Bacharach’s IEQ Chek™ accurately and reliably monitors key environmental levels within incubator chambers. These user-friendly direct-reading instruments use a remote sample probe to quickly confirm the CO2 (and O2 if installed) through the CO2 sample port built into the incubator. With built-in sensors at the tip of a secondary probe, the relative humidity (RH) and temperature levels are sampled to confirm the internal chamber readings. With the optional IQ Chek™ software and datalogging kit, all instrument readings can be stored for reference.
The Bacharach IEQ Chek™ has many features designed to meet the environmental monitoring needs within the medical and laboratory markets.
