It is our hard-lined commitment to quality that has made Memmert a reliable partner in the medical sector and medical research industry ever since the company’s founding in 1947. Of course we are DIN EN ISO 13 485 certified since many years. The following products are classified as medical device according to the medical device directive (93/42/EEC).

Medical devices

The Memmert CO2 incubator ICOmed

The Memmert CO2 incubator ICOmed is classified as a class IIa medical device. For ultimate comfort and optimal hygiene it is equipped with an electropolished chamber, and as option with oxygen control or active humidity control. All models feature a 1-hour programme to sterilise the chamber at 180 °C. Heating from all six sides guarantees a constant atmosphere at any place inside the CO2 incubator.

The Memmert steriliser S

The Memmert hot-air steriliser is applied as medical device for the sterilisation of medical material with dry heated air at atmospheric pressure. The setpoint-dependent programme resume function Setpoint WAIT guarantees precise sterilisation times and the complete killing off of even the most resistant microorganisms.

Possible applications

  • Sterilisation of medical instruments and laboratory glass
  • Depyrogenisation

The universal Memmert heating oven and drying oven Um

The success story of Memmert began in the year 1947, with the development of a hot air steriliser for the Red Cross. Today, Memmert heating ovens are indispensable in medical laboratories, operation rooms and anaesthesiology departments. They make a lasting impression with their aesthetics and user-friendly design coupled with unrivalled precision and reliability.

Possible applications

  • Keeping fango paraffin and silicates warm for physical therapy

The Memmert incubator Im

Heating and temperature control in the incubator Im were designed specifically for low temperatures. You can be certain that bacteria cultures, fungi cultures and cell cultures are incubated most gently and without any temperature overshoots. During the heating process, temperature is increased within a very narrow control range and kept exactly at the target value. A pre-heating chamber heats up the supplied air, so that no temperature deviations can occur.

Possible applications

  • Microbiological tests
  • Germ count determination
  • Incubation of cell cultures
  • Tempering of rinsing and infusion solutions

The Memmert blanket warmer IFbw

Especially in emergency trauma rooms, temperature control systems are vital when attending to seriously injured patients. In a blanket warmer IFbw, blankets and cloths preheated to any precise temperature between 40 and 60 °C to keep patients warm before and after their surgery are always close at hand. This practice minimises the risk of complications such as wound infections, cardiovascular disorders, cardiac arrhythmia or vascular disorders.

Possible applications

  • Warming of non-sterile cloths and blankets
