Average customer rating based on 2 reviews

At only 13 inches wide, the myTemp Mini CO2 is the smallest and most economical incubator for applications requiring CO2 gas control. Its small footprint makes the incubator ideal for use inside of biological safety cabinets, isolating sensitive cultures or for any laboratory simply trying to conserve bench space. With a thick layer of high efficiency insulation surrounding the chamber, the incubator is also ideal for transportation of cells. Once power has been disconnected, the incubator maintains temperature levels within 10% of the set parameter for up to 1 hour*. In addition each model includes a 12V vehicle power adapter for operating the instrument in a car, boat, etc.

Both temperature and CO2 percentage are digitally adjustable and displayed in real time on the large LED control panel. This panel also features a "Cal" function, for easy in-lab calibration of the temperature or CO2. In addition, humidity (up to 80%) can be added to the chamber by inserting the included (stainless steel) humidity reservoir.

The CO2 level is constantly monitored using dual beam infrared sensing technology. In the event of a drop in CO2 , audible and visual alarms are triggered, notifying the user of the error.

Despite its small size, the incubator features a relatively large 20L chamber with the capacity for flasks and bottles up to 2 liters. Two removable, stainless-steel shelves are included. The shelves are perforated to improve airflow within the chamber.

* If disconnected from the CO2 supply, CO2 percentage decreases by approx. 1% /30 min

Are there any access ports on the MyTemp Mini CO2 Incubator?

No, the MyTemp Mini CO2 does not have any access ports.

Can a port hole be drilled in the MyTemp Mini CO2?

Yes, a port hole can be drilled on the left or right side through the wall and insulation, and Benchmark can provide instructions as to where a port hole can be safely drilled. They do not perform this modification in-house, so you would need to do it yourself, and it would void the warranty.


I see there is a black port-looking object to the right of the CO2 inlet in the picture showing the CO2 inlet port. What is that?

It is a CO2 sample port, which may be used to take a gas sample in order to verify the CO₂ levels with an external analyzer.


Is there a HEPA filter or similar filter on the MyTemp Mini CO2's CO2 inlet?

There is a particulate filter, but it is not a HEPA filter.


What type / size of tubing is needed?

The rear of the instrument will accommodate 4 mm to 6 mm gas tubing. It is included with purchase of the MyTemp Mini CO2.
