New MCO-170AIC CO2 incubators from Panasonic deliver outstanding quality in performance, maximise cell culture efficiency and provide optimum results and reproducibility. Designed specifically for the safe, consistent cultivation of successful cell lines, this latest innovation offers the very highest levels of precision, security and ease of use.

New MCO-170AIC CO2 incubators from Panasonic deliver outstanding quality in performance, maximise cell culture efficiency and provide optimum results and reproducibility. Designed specifically for the safe, consistent cultivation of successful cell lines, this latest innovation offers the very highest levels of precision, security and ease of use.

The MCO-170AIC CO2 incubators are designed with ease of use and work efficiency in mind. Integrated shelf supports provide space for more culture vessels and an easy to clean incubator interior. A new full colour LCD touch screen gives clear information of incubator status (chamber temperature, CO2 level, door open status and alarms) with easy access to controller functions for fast, convenient set-up. A graphical chart display allows users to quickly review incubator performance and a new USB port allows laboratories to optimise cell culture protocols and adhere to standard operating procedures by conveniently transferring logged data to a USB stick.

The Panasonic MCO-170AIC CO2 incubators benefit from a Direct heat and air jacket system for high precision temperature control and rapid recovery, ensuring cultures are always maintained under optimum conditions. A dual IR CO2 sensor maintains accurate control of critical CO2 levels by minimising the effect of temperature and humidity changes during door opening for outstanding performance and fast recovery. A precise culture environment is further ensured by advanced PID control of CO2 and temperature. Enhanced insulation performance and lower energy consumption means users can achieve improved culture conditions, along with a reduction in electrical running costs.1

To provide optimum protection for valuable cultures, MCO-170AIC CO2 incubators incorporate continuous background contamination control with Panasonic’s InCu saFe® copper-enriched stainless steel interior and optional Safe Cell® UV technology, with new increased UV lamp life, which sterilises airborne and water pan contaminants. Furthermore, the optional H2O2 vapour sterilisation cycle provides a complete, validatable decontamination with a downtime of less than 3 hours. For enhanced security, the incubators are also offered with a new optional electric door lock with password.

The MCO-170AIC CO2 incubator delivers a precisely controlled environment and optimum protection for sensitive cell cultures and increased work efficiency.

Common Cell Transformed into Master Heart Cell
By genetically reprogramming the most common type of cell in mammalian connective tissue, researchers at the University of Wisconsin—Madison have generated master heart cells — primitive progenitors that form the developing heart.
Improving Regenerative Medicine
Lab-created stem cells may lack key characteristics, UCLA research finds.
Muscles on-a-Chip
This study may help explain why stem cell-based therapies have so far shown limited benefits for heart attack patients in clinical trials.
3-D Printed Lifelike Liver Tissue for Drug Screening
A team led by engineers at the University of California, San Diego has 3D-printed a tissue that closely mimics the human liver's sophisticated structure and function. The new model could be used for patient-specific drug screening and disease modeling.
Therapeutic Approach Gives Hope for Multiple Myeloma
A new therapeutic approach tested by a team from Maisonneuve-Rosemont Hospital (CIUSSS-EST, Montreal) and the University of Montreal gives promising results for the treatment of multiple myeloma, a cancer of the bone marrow currently considered incurable with conventional chemotherapy and for which the average life expectancy is about 6 or 7 years.
Cat Stem Cell Therapy Gives Humans Hope
By the time Bob the cat came to the UC Davis veterinary hospital, he had used up most of his nine lives.
Bile Acid Supports Production of Blood Stem Cells
A research group at Lund University has been able to show that bile acid is transferred from the mother to the foetus via the placenta to enable the foetus to produce blood stem cells.
New Biomarker to Assess Stem Cells Developed
A research team led by scientists from UCL have found a way to assess the viability of 'manufactured' stem cells known as induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs). The team's discovery offers a new way to fast-track screening methods used in stem cell research.
Tricked-Out Immune Cells Could Attack Cancer
New cell-engineering technique may lead to precision immunotherapies.
Edited Stem Cells Offer Hope of Precision Therapy for Blindness
Findings raise the possibility of treating blinding eye diseases using a patient's own corrected cells as replacement tissue.
