The SHEL LAB SCO6AD is designed to stop microbial contamination caused by mycetozoa, yeast, viruses, and bacteria and the range of other microorganisms that thrive in incubator environments.
The SCO6AD features a dry heat decontamination cycle, that maintains 180°C for 120 minutes. This industry best time and temperature relationship satisfies all global standards for decontamination. This is decontamination at its fastest easiest and most effective - it is not necessary to remove the IR CO2 sensor prior to activating the decontamination process and we feature the shortest cycle time on the market. This is a more convenient approach and eliminates potential damage to the sensitive IR sensor. Other features of the SCO6AD include a USB interface for software communication, precise temperature control microprocessor and an independent over temperature safety controller
Model SCO6AD features the ultimate in contamination control. This unit is ideal for cell culture labs where contamination can result in significant losses of both time and money. Plus, the overall decontamination cycle (heat up to cool down) is the fastest on the market, so users will have minimal downtime on their SCO6AD. In addition, there is no need to remove sensitive components prior to running the decontamination cycle.

Can the SCO6AD CO2 incubators be stacked?
Yes, they can be stacked using a stacking stand. If you order two or more of the SCO6AD CO2 incubators, we will provide this stacking stand at no additional cost. Please contact us if you would like more information.
How is the chamber humidified?
The SCO6AD is humidified passively by filling the humidification pan included with the unit. The pan is then placed on the heated chamber floor. Evaporation, driven in part by heating, raises the relative humidity percentage (RH%) of the chamber. A copper token included with the pan helps to significantly slow the growth of microbiological populations in the humidification water supply.
Note that the incubator must be humidified in order to achieve its stated temperature uniformity specification.
Does the SCO6AD CO2 incubator have a fan or other forced air circulation system?
The SCO6AD uses an air pump for forced air circulation.9143 Sheldon Manufacturing 2017-06-22
