CO2 Incubators | Eppendorf Galaxy 170 R and S

The Galaxy 170 R and 170 S CO2 incubators are high-capacity, 170 litre incubators that provides superior quality, outstanding performance, and intuitive operation for your lab! The 170 R and S can be conveniently placed on or under the bench or even double stacked, making them ideal for a wide range of specialised and traditional applications where ever incubation is required. An advanced six-sided direct heating system gently bathes cells in a seamless, fan less chamber. Galaxy 170 R models provide a tremendous amount of usable space that can be optimised with options including O2 control, active cooling, and UV-sterilization.
