    Incubator PM 2000 RBT

    Incubator PM 2000 RBT


    • Small incubator for the stabilization of in vitro conditions for cell- and tissue cultures during microscopic examination. The abbreviation RBT stands for Rapid Balanced Temperature. Incubator PM 2000 RBT replaces Incubator PM S1.
    • The incubator enables a homogenous heat, CO2 and O2 distribution in combination with a Heating Insert.
      Following inserts are compatible:
      – Heating Insert P 2000
      – Heating Insert P Lab-Tek™ 2000
      – Heating Insert Mxx 2000
      – Heating Insert P S
      – Heating Insert P Lab-Tek™ S
      – Heating Insert Mxx S
      – Cooling/Heating Insert P S
      – Cooling/Heating Insert P Lab-Tek™ S
    • The heated glass of the incubator is permeable to 90% of light in the visible wavelength range.
    • The heated glass warms up the incubation chamber from the top. This avoids the condensation of water on the cover of the cell cultivation vessel.
    • The incubator is suitable for high-resolution microscopy. It is designed for the LD-condensors 0.35 and 0.55.
    • For power supply and the control of temperature, the TempController 2000-2 (or the TempModule S) has to be used.


    All components and electrical units of the series 2000 are compatible with the components and modules of the S series by Zeiss (e.g. TempModule S).


    • Inverse microscope with a mechanical stage or a scanning stage

    The incubator offers a homogenously heated incubation room with defined atmosphere in combination with following inserts:

    Insert Cell Cultivation Vessel
    Heating Insert P S Petri dishes, POC-R + -mini Set
    Heating Insert P Lab-Tek S Lab-Tek Chambers, Object slides,Petri dishes, POC-R + -mini Set
    Cooling/Heating Insert P S Petri dishes, POC-R + mini Set
    Cooling/Heating Insert P Lab-Tek S Lab-Tek Chambers, Object slides, Petri dishes, POC-R + -mini Set
    Heating Inserts M06-M96 S 06 – 96Multiwells (Corning, Falcon)
