Astec-Bio has designed the EC6S unit with state of the art technology and today we have the most Stable, Spacious and Superior incubator available in the market. With distinct temperature control and gas supply for each chamber the EC6S offers outstanding flexibility & convenience for its operator. Our engineers have developed the EC6S with new alterations including a Zirconia Dioxide Ceramic O2 Sensor, long life Infra-red sensor, Lid heaters thus better temperature stability which outperforms the competition by virtually every metric!
The new gas feeding system provides “personal incubation” where an opening of one chamber has no direct stress to the other unopened chambers. The Pre-Heated gas flow to the chamber gives the EC6S the ability to recover the temperature and gas level faster than any other incubator in the market. Temperature control is also independent to each chamber with the accuracy of ±0.1℃. A Multi-featured incubator enhanced to exceed your expectations!
Like a Comfortable Baby Crib
Each chambers temperature (heated from Top & Bottom) are independently adjustable & comfortably fits 6 x 35mm, or 3 x 60mm or 2 x 4 well dishes. The EC6S allows its operator to access cultures in the desired chambers without disturbing the adjacent chambers thus the harmful effects of fluctuations in temperature and gas caused by everyday incubator access are avoided.
Heated Lid with an unique Observation Window
We have added a Heated Lid in order to prevent condensation and enhance temperature regulation and quick recovery for the EC6S unit. Pre-Heated Gas mixture is supplied independently to each chamber using our newly developed gas feeding aluminum modules. Heated Bottom Provides direct heat to the cultures through the heating optimization plates (The Gas tank is mounted seamlessly with CO2 and O2 sensors under the unit.) *The EC6S has a unique feature that allows the operator to observe the inside the chamber without the need to open the chamber and disturb the cultured environment.
“Safety matters”. No more “Oops” moments!! With the EC6S unit, the operator has the ability to lock down the Lid with an ergonomic easy to open latch in order to prevent any accidental breach of the chamber while he/she is away.
EC-6S comes with an analog output and BMS (contact relay) as a standard redundant safety feature. It can be easily connected to an external device such as a phone or data logging device that can call or text you when there are any irregularities taking place in your absence. This enables you to remotely protect your samples with a peace of mind while you are away from your lab.
The EC-6S is equipped with an easy access and convenient sampling ports located in front of the unit. This allows the operator to access these ports without the need to move or reach behind the unit and possibly disturb the cultured embryos.
Shh…Do Not Disturb
TrakStation pH monitoring technology seamlessly integrates into the state-of-the-art EC-6S unit and is a reliable way to collect pH values non-invasively.
The TrakStation reads media pH using the sv2 sensor, a sterile non-invasive disposable that does not take up valuable culture dish space. pH data is collected regularly and automatically - no need to open the lid or disturb the embryo culture environment.
