Less is more:


Less contaminatable surface
More protection against contamination
Less surface to clean
More time for cell cultivation
No consumables
Significantly more cost savings year after year

Less is more. The ANTI.PLENUM DESIGN reduces contaminatable surfaces to a minimum and provides an optimal surface area with the best possible growth conditions for your cell and tissue cultures.

Hot air sterilization at 180 °C ensures absolutely no bacterial contamination – standard in all CO2 incubators from BINDER.

More about contamination

Conventional CO2 incubators

Traditional CO2 incubator
Approx. 3 m² surface area for the inner chamber, shelves, water pan
Additional approx. 3 m² surface area for fixtures
Less contaminable surface
Approx. 3 m² surface area for the inner chamber, shelves, water pan
0 m² surface area, no other fixtures

Corners and edges in conventional incubators increase surface area and thereby increase the risk of contamination.

Round corners that minimize surface area in BINDER CO2 incubators reduce the risk of contamination.

Less surface.
Less against contamination.

The ANTI.PLENUM DESIGN takes contamination and any reason to exist literally: it finds no place to settle and grow.
