Incubator XLmulti S2 DARK

Incubator XLmulti S2 DARK

The large light-tight incu­ba­tor for the Axio Observ­er has slid­ing doors and a spa­cious access over the entire front as well as a mov­able obser­va­tion win­dow behind the front slid­ing doors. The incu­ba­tor warms up the micros­cope, the nose­piece, the objec­tives and fur­ther com­po­nents and is espe­cial­ly qual­i­fied for flu­o­res­cence appli­ca­tions. It is avail­able with a Stan­dard (on/off) and a Pre­mi­um (dim­ma­ble) LED illumination.


  • Spa­cious access to the stage: Slid­ing front pan­els with a con­ti­nous large open­ing (440 x 160 mm)
  • Mov­able obser­va­tion win­dow behind the front slid­ing doors for a view into the incu­ba­tor with­out any loss of heat
  • Addi­tion­al access by slid­ing doors in each side panel
  • Com­fort­able han­dling: Lamp sup­port can be eas­i­ly swiv­elled back despite mount­ed incu­ba­tor, a pre­vi­ous lat­er­al slid­ing of covers (lamp sup­port seal­ings) is no longer necessary
  • Eas­i­er assem­bly and dis­as­sem­bly: Cable entries into the incu­ba­tor in and below the stage with­out the need to con­nect or disconnect
  • Mod­u­lar and flex­i­ble adap­ta­tion to dif­fer­ent micros­cope con­fig­u­ra­tions: Slide-in mod­ules on the lower left and right hand side can be insert­ed from the side or from the front; slide-in mod­ules for spe­cial con­fig­u­ra­tions can be built upon request
  • Con­ve­nient inte­ri­or equip­ment: Humid­i­fi­er bot­tle hold­er (for 250 ml), shelf for CO2 covers, remov­able shelf for dif­fer­ent cell cul­ture ves­sels or cen­trifuge tubes
  • Avail­able with two vari­ants of LED illu­mi­na­tion: Stan­dard (on/off) and Pre­mi­um (dim­ma­ble) illumination
  • The Apo­Tome can be installed and removed while the incu­ba­tor is mounted
  • Com­pat­i­ble to all condensers
  • Micro­ma­nip­u­la­tors of var­i­ous man­u­fac­tur­ers can be used
  • Local gassing is pos­si­ble with spe­cif­ic Heat­ing Inserts and CO2-Covers in com­bi­na­tion with the CO2 Mod­ule and/or the O2 Module

LED illu­mi­na­tion stan­dard: 1 light panel from front with switch

LED illu­mi­na­tion pre­mi­um: 2 light pan­els from left/right with dimmer
