Medical Device Incubator for IVF

Medical License Acquired

The “Best” just got “Better”

Astec-Bio is renowned for producing the most Stable, Spacious & Superior incubators in the market. We are proud to introduce the all new redesigned EC6S-MD now as a Medical Device Class IIa (93/42/EEC Annex V)

EC6S-MD has been upgraded with the state of the art technology and security built in, while maintaining the highest level of safety requirements for medical electrical equipment available today.
With distinct temperature control and gas supply for each chamber, the EC6S-MD offers outstanding flexibility & convenience for it’s operator.

We have created a Multi-featured incubator enhanced to exceed your expectations with ease of use in mind. Our engineers have developed the EC6S-MD with new alterations including a Zirconia Dioxide Ceramic O2 Sensor, long life Infra-red sensor with an addition of Lid Heaters to create a better temperature stability for the unit.

The gas feeding system provides “personal incubation” where an opening of one chamber has no direct stress to the other unopened chambers. The Pre-Heated gas flow to the chamber gives the EC6S-MD the ability to recover the temperature and gas level faster than any other incubator in the market. Temperature control is also independent to each chamber with the accuracy of ±0.1ºC.

The EC6S-MD outperforms the competition by virtually every metric & is standing to be your loyal lab partner for years to come!

Like a Commodious & Comfortable Baby Crib

Very much like its predecessor the ECS6-MD comes with 6 chambers, heated from Top & Bottom, independently adjustable & can comfortably accommodate 6 x 35mm, or 3 x 60mm or 2 x 4 well dishes.
The EC6S-MD allows its operator to access cultures in the desired chambers without disturbing the adjacent chambers thus the harmful effects of fluctuations in temperature and gas caused by everyday incubator access are avoided.

Best in Class Gas/Temperature Recovery

The EC6S-MD unit has been optimized with new generation Heated Lid in order to enhance temperature regulation and quick recovery for each chamber.
Pre-Heated Gas mixture is supplied independently to each chamber using our newly developed gas feeding aluminum modules. Heated bottom modules provide a direct heat to the cultures through the heating optimization plates (The Gas tank is mounted seamlessly with CO2 and O2 sensors under the unit.)

*The EC6S-MD also has a signature unique feature “Observation window” that allows the operator to see inside the incubation chamber without the need to open the lid and disturb the cultured environment.

Ergonomic easy-latch
with flow sensors

Equipped with gas flow sensors in each chamber, the user can make 100% sure of the lids are all closed. If the lid is even slightly opened, the flow sensor detects the leak of the gas and activate the alarm.

With the EC6S-MD unit, the user can lock down the Lid with an ergonomic easy to open latch in order to prevent any accidental breach of the chamber while he/she is operating the unit. This also contributes the smallest gas consumption in the market.

Safety, Built-in

EC6S-MD comes with an analog output and BMS (contact relay) as a standard redundant safety feature. It can be easily connected to an external device such as a phone or data logging device that can call or text you when there are any irregularities taking place in your absence. This enables you to remotely protect your samples with a peace of mind while you are away from your lab.

The EC-6SMD is equipped with an easy access and convenient sampling ports located in front of the unit. This allows the operator to access these ports without the need to move or reach behind the unit and possibly disturb the cultured embryos.
