You use CO2 incubators to provide optimal atmospheric conditions to protect, grow and maintain cell and tissue cultures. But how do you define optimal? Optimal is never a one-size-fits-all condition. It’s contextual. It’s driven by the research or the cell line. But – more importantly – it should be driven by you. Providing optimal conditions means you control the parameters of the particular environment in which your specific cells will thrive, or be challenged. You define the variables, not the incubator.
