EC 160

CO₂ INCUBATORThe closest to natural culturing conditionsN-Smart™


EC 160 is designed to resist contamination and protect your valuable cultures. Fast temperature and CO2 recovery, without any overshoot continues this substantial protection.

Sample safety is given top priority with audible and visual alarm system and optional NuveWarn™ remote alarm system, plus an optional AlerText™ text message to multiple mobile phones. Sending e-mail up to five e-mail addresses in case of any failure is offered as standard.

Wet disinfection at 90°C by NüveDis™ ensures a clean chamber. Removing the shelves and racks (only 20 seconds!) permits use of the nUVeray™ ultra-violet option that can achieve sterilization in a very short time.
