Water Jacketed vs. Air Jacketed CO2 Incubators
Importance of Stable & Uniform Conditions
Cell culture incubator technology has evolved in many aspects over the past few decades. One component that has undergone significant development is the insulation of the incubator walls. Incubators have always been predicated on their ability to maintain proper temperature for the cells growing inside them. Keeping the environment warm and well-insulated is crucial to healthy cell growth. A stable 37°C is typically needed for cells to grow properly, which is why temperature fluctuations can be harmful to cell development. Thus, insulated incubators arose as a key technology in delivering proper temperature uniformity.
