Why should anyone optimise the performance of an incubator for rapid, and thus energy-intensive, heating up and cooling down phases, when it is used mainly for storing samples at constant temperatures?
As a consequence of this consideration, Memmert Engineering developed the new storage chamber IPS, based on Peltier technology. Running with no vibration and above all practically silent, this environmentally friendly heating/cooling system saves on operating costs to a considerable extent.
Not only are energy costs reduced, which can make a big difference for companies and institutions with environmental certification, but also the costs for refrigerants and maintenance of the refrigeration.
Apart from this innovation, Memmert introduces a large volume model of its microbiological Peltier-cooled incubator IPP, tried and tested for the past 10 years, at the analytica. It features a capacity of 749 litres.
The compressor-cooled ICP incubators from a volume of 256 l for the first time explore sub-zero temperatures, with a maximum cooling power of -12 °C.
Also new in the programme: The Memmert CO2 incubator INCO is being supplemented with an optional O2 module for the digital control of oxygen supply in the chamber.
