Thermo Scientific Cytomat 10 automated incubator

Tuesday, 22 January, 2013 | Supplied by: Thermo Fisher Scientific

The Thermo Scientific Cytomat 10 is a fully automated incubator and storage module for high-capacity cell growth and assay incubation. Designed to fit into busy cell biology or screening laboratories, it offers good environmental control and can be seamlessly integrated with existing automated assay hardware.

The device provides a fast plate access time of less than 10 s. Multiple transfer positions and an under-bench version allow flexible incubator placement within the laboratory. As the first generation of automated incubator with a fully validated thermal decontamination system, the product is designed to significantly decrease the risk of contamination and reduce assay variability. The robust unit is suitable for precious primary cell or cell-line cultures and assays.

An efficient thermal disinfection method practically eliminates germs and spore suspensions, even in areas that are difficult to reach via manual cleaning. Based on the ContraCon Routine of the company’s HERAcell incubators, the device’s decontamination is carried out in wet conditions at 90°C, leaving incubators virtually residue free. It incorporates humidity control via an external water reservoir, reducing the risk of contamination from an internal source and the need for repetitive incubator access. Recovery times are virtually eliminated with a heated automatic access door with small opening. 

The product incorporates an LCD monitor for incubation parameters and full text read-out messaging to inform the user of temperature, humidity and gaseous atmosphere level changes. As a flexible incubation unit, it incorporates the company’s internally automated plate shuttle system (PSS) to serve multiple access and loading positions.
