The Thermo Scientific Forma Series II CO2 Incubator is the leading choice of R&D, biotech, academic and clinical labs worldwide, and with good reason. This water jacketed incubator offers precise control, recovery, stability and protection of your precious samples, maintaining temperature longer, and recovering faster than other technology out there.  The Thermo Scientific Forma Series II CO2 Incubator has many safe guards in place, such as triple wall construction, to guard against temperature drop in the event of a power outage, which can be useful in a lab where the power source isn’t completely reliable. Should you lose power, this laboratory co2 incubator will only drop 3°C (from 37°C to 36°C) in an hour and only 17°C in 10 hours, a marked improvement over air jacketed incubators.

The Thermo Scientific Forma Series II CO2 Incubator has a validatable HEPA air filtration to minimize the risk of airborne contaminates when opening and closing the chamber, giving you cleanroom-like class 100 air quality. The snap fit HEPA filter of this laboratory incubator can be easily changed without the use of tools and reports to a messaging center when replacement is needed. Air is filtered continuously and the entire co2 incubator chamber is refreshed every 60 seconds maintaining an aseptic culture environment. The Thermo Scientific Forma Series II CO2 Incubator is easy to clean with a polished stainless interior with coved corners, removable, autoclavable stainless steel shelves and removable inner door gasket. These shelves can be set as within this spacious 6.5 cu ft capacity. The heated dual pane inner glass door reduces condensation, and aids in the fast recovery times and responsiveness.

This Thermo 3110 Incubator has been fully inspected and is performing to factory specifications. Our service team runs a full preventative maintenance on the instrument prior to listing on our site. This includes verifying temperature ranges, that the CO2 monitor is functioning properly, inspecting gaskets and chamber integrity and a decontamination. Instrument has been calibrated by our service team at 7% and 14% CO2 concentration running at 37°C.

When installing this 3110 Incubator make sure the unit is on a firm and level surface, and is located away from windows and doors, as well as heating or cooling ducts. There should be 3 inches of clearance around the incubator for unobstructed electrical and gas hook up, and proper ventilation. When filling the water jacket of the Thermo 3110, be sure to use unchlorinated water, as chlorine degrades stainless steel and can cause rust. For the best operation, when using the humidity pan, sterilized distilled, demineralized or deionized water with a resistance range of 50K to 1M Ohm/cm, or a conductivity range of 20.0 to 1.0 uS/cm is optimal.
