The SHEL LAB economy incubator was designed and manufactured to accommodate tight budgets, while maintaining the fundamental needs of quality and precision. These units have PID microprocessor controllers, a heated outer door and a tempered-glass inner door. They provide exceptional temperature uniformity, while minimizing cold spots that lead to condensation and ultimately, contamination. Although they do not have a humidity display, the extremely stable temperature environment maintains constant humidity through evaporation at up to 95%. The audible/visual alarms for temperature and CO2 respond to out-of-tolerance conditions. They offer an independent overtemperature safety control to protect samples from overheating, and an optional CO2 tank switch/alarm to prevent prematurely exhausting the gas supply.

      Aside from the difference in size, what are the differences in features between the SCO "Economy" CO2 Incubator (SCO6WE) and the base model SCO CO2 Incubators (SCO2W and SCO5W)?

      There are a few key differences, as well as a number of feature differences between the SCO5W and SCO2W:

      1. The SCO5W and SCO6WE are stackable, whereas the SCO2W is not.
      2. The SCO5W has a relative humidity display; the SCO6WE and SCO2W do not.
      3. The SCO5W and SCO2W have copper-caged HEPA filters, the SCO6WE does not.
