Used CO2 Incubators

Carbon dioxide (CO2) incubators are enclosures used in controlling cell cultures with precision. It maintains constant temperature and high humidity levels to ensure cell culture growth. The temperature in CO2 incubators ranges from 4 degrees Celsius to 50 degrees Celsius, while CO2 concentrations span 0.3% to 19.9%.

The carbon dioxide in incubators mimics the atmosphere in the human body. This behavior allows the cells and tissues to maintain a neutral pH level and thrive throughout the experiment.

Popular Manufacturers of CO2

CO2 incubators are essential laboratory instruments, so it is equally important to procure them from trusted brands. Doing so guarantees that you are getting optimal performance for your projects. Among the most reliable CO2 incubator brands on the market are Thermo Scientific, Eppendorf and NuAire.

How to Choose a CO2 Incubator

Like any other scientific instruments and tools, CO2 incubator technologies may vary depending on the brand. Knowing what you need for your research before buying one is always best.

Incubator Type

There are two types of CO2 incubators —water-jacketed incubators and air-jacketed incubators. Air-jacketed incubators are quick and easy to set up compared to water-jacketed incubators. These devices have heating systems that directly heat the gas in the box. Air jacket incubators can quickly restore temperature stability for applications requiring frequent opening and closing of doors.

Water-jacketed incubators feature a separate hot water compartment. The heated water circulates through natural convection and is then transferred to the inner box through radiation. Both heating systems are accurate and reliable regardless of incubator chamber features.

CO2 incubators have either infrared or thermal conductivity sensors. Infrared sensors are popular among researchers because they are generally more accurate. Thermal conductivity sensors are more cost-efficient, but the door system may interfere with the humidity in the incubators.


CO2 incubators are an investment, so you want to ensure they can house all your specimens. Choose one with enough capacity to accommodate your samples without compromising internal conditions.

Control Panels

User-friendly equipment is ideal for making lab work more efficient. Look for a CO2 incubator that's easy to operate and makes data validation a breeze.


Keeping a sterile environment for your specimens is essential for lab work. You might want to get a CO2 incubator with decontamination features to prevent cross-contamination and lessen your downtime due to cleaning.

Interior Design

A copper CO2 incubator is popular among researchers due to its natural antimicrobial properties. However, incubators made from stainless steel are generally sturdier and less likely to react with surrounding materials. Stainless steel incubators are also corrosion-free and scratch-resistant.
