Our Geotech portable carbon dioxide monitors are used in laboratories in incubators for the verification of IVF and within stem cell research. Laboratory incubators need to run at a constant temperature, humidity and CO2 level (5%) to maintain the correct conditions for optimum cell growth, embryo cultures and IVF. Whilst incubators themselves will have a built-in system for monitoring CO2, a portable CO2 analyser can quickly and accurately confirm the CO2, O2, humidity and temperature levels.
