Use of Narrow Bandwidth Ultraviolet Light and Copper-Enriched Stainless Steel Construction To Achieve Active Background Contamination Control™1 In A Cell Culture CO2 Incubator

SANYO Electric Biomedical Co., Ltd. has developed a cell culture CO2 incubator which employs an isolated, narrow-bandwidth ultraviolet light to destroy airborne contaminants in the incubator chamber, as well as water-borne organisms in the humidity water reservoir. Integrated with copper-enriched interior surfaces and components which inhibit the growth of organisms without surface discoloration, the SANYO incubator (Model MCO-20AIC) offers an optimum cell culture environment through a process of “Active Background Contamination Control™” which eliminates the need for high heat decontamination, frequent chamber cleaning and associated downtime.
