MILFORD, Mass. (January 15, 2010) - Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., the world leader in serving science, today announced a new smaller capacity Thermo Scientific Midi 40 CO2 incubator that delivers the reliable culturing performance of a full-sized incubator in a convenient, space saving footprint. The Midi 40 is ideal for researchers who require separate, undisturbed incubation conditions due to the contamination risk associated with shared incubators or lack of available space. Additional benefits include reduced energy and gas consumption, as well as lower heat output, which helps laboratories lower operational costs and conserve resources.

The incubation parameters of the Midi 40 are easily managed using the incubator’s IntrLogic II user interface, which features a bright, highly visible vacuum fluorescent display and an easy-to-navigate membrane touchpad. The unit also incorporates a non-corrosive stainless steel chamber, with 1.4 cubic feet (40 liters) of culture space, and a heated humidity pan to generate relative humidity values of up to 95 percent. Rapid recovery rates promote optimal cell growth and highly efficient direct heating design provides extremely accurate temperature control with a uniformity of 0.1 °C.

The Midi 40 CO2 incubator is supplied with RS485 signal output for convenient data capture, and it includes an adjustable audible and visual alarm to alert the user to any significant changes to the incubation conditions.

The easily stackable Thermo Scientific Midi 40 CO2 incubator is ideal for cell culturing scientists who need smaller, discrete workspaces or who require smaller sample throughput. For more information, please visit
