Climate chamber ICH with CO2 control

For applications in building materials testing or cell biology requiring temperatures below room temperature, humidity control and CO2 enriched atmosphere, Memmert adds the 256C with CO2 control to its range of climate chamber ICH models.

Starting October 2011, the Memmert climate chamber family welcomes a new member with various talents. Thanks to its unique combination of temperature, humidity and digital CO2 control, the climate chamber ICH 256C can be universally used for building materials testing or applications in cell biology requiring temperatures below room temperature.

The new climate chamber covers a temperature range of 0 °C to + 60 °C without humidity and from + 10 °C to + 60 °C with humidity. Active humidification and de-humidification can be set between 10 and 80 % rh. With an adjustment precision of 0.1 %, the electronic CO2 control with automatic zero setting (NDIR measuring system) in the ICH 256C ensures an absolutely precise CO2 atmosphere from 0 to 20 %. Carbon dioxide is introduced via a sterile filter. 

The Memmert ICH series is extended by the climate chamber ICH 256 for stability testing of pharmaceuticals, as well as the ICH 256L featuring an illumination unit in accordance with ICH Q1B, option 2.
