Thermo Scientific's new 230V environmental chambers use a unique airflow system for advanced temperature control. Designed to provide highly stable environmental conditions, the chambers are available in Europe, Africa, Latin America and the Asia Pacific region.

The newly CE-marked chambers provide temperature control above and below ambient for drug stability testing, shelf-life testing, insect studies or controlled storage, the firm says.

There are two models: the wide temperature units with humidity (available in 311 L and 821 L) and a heat-only model (available in 821 L) that is tailored for large-scale clinical applications and microbiology.

For applications that require close control of a CO2 environment, there is an optional infrared CO2 package that can be added to the wide temperature model.

The interior of the chambers is designed for stability. The horizontal laminar airflow system enables temperature uniformity and fast recovery rates, which provide an optimal growth and testing environment, even with large product loads or heat-generating equipment, the firm says.

The products feature a broad temperature range spanning 0 to 60ÂșC and the relative humidity is easily controlled to meet the needs of different applications. They also meet certain compliance and regulatory requirements, including international conference on harmonisation (ICH) guidelines for drug substance and product storage testing.

The heavy duty construction of the chambers promotes a long lifespan and provides a flexible and cost-effective solution for researchers. The chambers connect to standard monitoring systems for easy internal and regulatory product documentation and can be supplemented with accessories and options for many specific applications.
