Maximum variability of cell incubation parameters in minimal space on your deck
Run your experiments and cellular assays with fewer errors and greater accuracy, in a 24/7 controlled environment. The INHECO SCILA cell incubator gives you maximum precision, superior protection and great flexibility while taking up minimal space in your automated deck.
Cell incubators are used by cell biologists, microbiologists and molecular biologists and their medical technical assistants for automated cell culture and cell-based assays for adherent cell cultures in the cell culture laboratory. They allow labs to create and maintain the ideal physiological conditions for cell growth, by controlling gas atmosphere, humidity and temperature. They very best offer precise control of every part of the environment while protecting precious samples.
POWERFUL AND SCALABLE
The INHECO SCILA is the most powerful incubator in its class. The SCILA 4-position incubator is purpose-built for automated cell culture applications in liquid handling systems. So, it’s ideal for medium and low throughput cell processing in a controlled environment. And by stacking SCILA incubators in towers, you can process more samples using variable parameters, without crowding your deck.
CONTROLLED AND PROTECTED
With the SCILA your lab can process every sample without fear of contamination, in exactly the conditions required. That’s thanks to its copper chamber and water tubing, sterile water systems and easy-to-clean design. Temperature, humidity and gas atmosphere can all be regulated, and the SCILA offers excellent atmosphere and temperature accuracy and temperature uniformity. Choose to buy the optional SCILA MIX gas mixer to control the gas in your incubation or add your own gas mixing system that can supply mixed gas. Using two or three gas mixers together enables the reproduction of hypoxic conditions to mimic the conditions in the human body.
SMALL AND FLEXIBLE
The SCILA has a footprint of just 291 mm H x 250 mm W x 410 mm L and comes in a choice of 4 microplate (for 96 well plates less than 20 mm in height) or 2 deep well options (up to 23 mm in height) allowing you to use microtiters or vials. Or stack both, to offer maximum flexibility in your lab.
EASY TO INTEGRATE
The SCILA is quick to connect and commission with SiLA-compliant software, and an API available. It’s also IoT-ready. It integrates seamlessly with most makes of liquid handling stations in combination with a reader and robotic arm.
RELIABLE AND SUPPORTED
Every INHECO device is designed, engineered and made in Germany and undergoes rigorous quality control before delivery. It comes with a global two-year warranty and full customer service including remote support, diagnostic and servicing options that focusses on minimizing operational downtime.
