Why measure CO2 in an incubator?
Incubators can be used in biology, microbiology, medicine, research, and veterinary activities. They can also be used for quality control in the pharmaceutical, biotech, food, and cosmetic industries.
These incubators can maintain a constant temperature and concentration of gases such as carbon dioxide (CO₂) and oxygen. This creates a stable environment, which is essential in order to avoid error in measurement and to get the highest accuracy possible in research studies. If viruses or bacteria grow or multiply, it is essential to know the ambient measurements. It might also be a requirement to have varied gas concentrations in the growing process, so as not to kill the microorganism.
How does it work?
An incubator is a zone that is shielded from the outside world, which makes it possible to completely control the environment inside.
To obtain the optimal cell conditions, the right temperature, humidity, and CO₂-concentration are required.
When you can control the climate in an incubator, it is possible to freeze, dehydrate, and suppress research material etc., in order to obtain the desired result.
This application gives you better control of the growing process thanks to its ability to provide a stable environment. Because of this, the growing process can be faster and achieve a higher degree of accuracy.
If someone is conducting research, the values of the measurements obtained are higher in accuracy. As a result, the research becomes more reliable.
