The evolution of CO2 Incubator


Used to maintain the optimum environmental conditions for cell growth, CO2 incubators has become one of the most significant equipment in cell and molecular biology. Environmental factors such as the CO2 and O2 concentration, temperature, and humidity are carefully monitored and controlled based on specific cellular requirements.

The need for CO2 incubators gained ground when scientists began to explore the science of cell culture. Bell jars inside dry ovens were the first air-jacketed CO2 incubators. Technology progressed and the first commercial CO2 incubators were introduced in the late 1960s. Today, different models with various innovations are available for research and clinical applications.
