With its clean chamber conception of rounded corners, no crevices (even in the racking system) for contaminants to hide and with gentle air circulation, the EC 160 is designed to resist contamination and protect your valuable cultures. Fast temperature recovery, without any overshoot continues this substantial protection.
A comprehensive control system keeps the user fully informed with display of set and actual parameter values. Should any alarm situation occur, a variety of alerts can be invoked. Optional AlerText™ will send a text message to you anywhere in the world and could include the NÜVE service support for fast response.
Wet disinfection by NüveDis™ ensures a clean chamber. Removing the shelves and racks (only 20 seconds!) permits use of the nUVeray™ ultra-violet option that can achieve sterilization in a very short time.
Optimized dimensions provide a capacity of close to 200 Petri dishes of 90 mm diameter or a larger number of culture flasks than you would expect from a chamber of this volume.
