Avidity Science has been the UK distributor and service provider for the NuAire CO2 incubator range for 15+ years.
Accuracy in your research is dependent on your chosen equipment maintaining the ideal environment. Have peace of mind with our premium range of CO2 incubators, which will protect your experiments with the precise monitoring of CO2, temperature, O2 and relative humidity (RH) where required. Protection against contamination is also essential to your work. We recognise this and as a result, each of our CO2 incubators are fitted with a unique HEPA filtration system.

In biology, a CO2 incubator is a device used to grow and maintain microbiological cultures or cell cultures. The incubator maintains optimal temperature, humidity and other conditions such as the carbon dioxide (CO2) and oxygen content of the atmosphere inside. Incubators are essential for a lot of experimental work in cell biology, microbiology and molecular biology and are used to culture both bacterial as well as eukaryotic cells.
One of the main concerns for any CO2 user is how to remove contaminants that are introduced into the chamber every time the door is opened for general use. Unclean air from the surrounding area will naturally enter the chamber. To ensure a sterile environment inside the chamber each NuAire CO2 Incubators contain a closed loop HEPA filtered system which will continuously remove airborne particulates. This ensures that the air quality in the chamber is the same as a biological safety cabinet (Class 100 air).
In fan unassisted CO2 incubators, CO2 gas, temperature, air quality, and relative humidity are not actively blended and this can result in different conditions throughout the incubator. With the NuAire closed loop HEPA system this ensure that all elements essential to successful cell growth are equal throughout the chamber. This also creates a positive pressure in the chamber, meaning that when the door is initially opened ‘unclean’ air is not drawn into the chamber but rather ‘clean’ air is released into the room. This significantly reduces the chances of contamination from unclean room air entering the chamber. All filters for the NuAire closed loop HEPA are located outside of the chamber in an easy to access panel at the front of the unit, again preventing any chance of contamination unlike older HEPA filtered units where the filters were located in-chamber. At NuAire and Avidity Science we call this constant contamination control and should be a key feature to your CO2 incubators.
NuAire CO2 Incubators have been designed to provide a reliable controlled in-vitro environment for optimum tissue cell culture growth as well as the storage and preservation of gametes and tissue cell cultures intended for research at or near body temperature. In-VitroCell CO2 Incubators provide accurate and precise control of humidity, temperature, CO2 and sterility.

Not only will the NuAire CO2 Incubator ensure constant contamination control but also features:
The NuTouch electronic control system makes NuAire’s CO2 incubators one of the safest options for tissue culture work, as you can see from the video below. The NuTouch Electronic Control System for NuAire’s CO2 Incubators is designed specifically to make controlling the parameters needed for optimal cell culture growth much easier to control precisely.
