Panasonic MIR-554



MIR series incubators are recognized as exceptional units suitable for a wide range of applications requiring a -10ºC to +60ºC environment. The wide variety of temperatures, humidity and lighting patterns that are essential in research, environmental studies and testing can now be accurately reproduced and controlled.     
MIR environmental test chambers/refrigerated incubators are ideal in testing applications such as:    
  • Industrial testing in the electrical, machinery, textiles industries    
  • Chemical testing e.g., storage, stability, acid/alkali, durability    
  • Food industry for packaging, quality control and stability    
  • Testing for waste water, BOD, soil testing    
  • Microorganism culturing    
  • Germination experiments
