"Tropicool" Variant Incubators
Incubators incorporating semiconductor/thermoelectric technology offering temperature control down to 22oC and up to 50oC at an Ambient of 30oC.
The following should be read in conjunction with information covering the entire Biocell Series of incubators, as details unique to the "Tropicool" Variants only are described below.

To enable laboratory technicians to deal cost-effectively with bacteriological culturing in the tropics, Contherm has developed the Tropicool system. This entirely new thermoelectric technology represents a significant advance on traditional refrigeration techniques - and gives the Contherm Biocell "Tropicool" variant incubators a new dimension in quality and performance.
The Tropicool system is a reliable, economical and environmentally-friendly means of cooling. The heart of this system is a solid-state, semi-conductor device which contains no moving parts or plumbing, yet is very effective at transferring heat energy. With low power consumption, operating temperatures of 24°C at an ambient of 30°C, for instance, can be achieved. The Biocell "Tropicool" variant incubators enable quality incubating in the tropics, and B.O.D. work in temperate regions.Plate and sample drying problems are greatly reduced with the "Tropicool" system.
Higher than "normal" humidities are maintained due to the low temperature difference between the system's cooling fins and the interior air, thus elevating the dew point.

"Polar" Variant Incubators
CFC-Free Incubators offering temperature control down to 0oC and up to 50oC in a wide range of ambient conditions.

The following should be read in conjunction with information covering the entire Biocell Series of incubators, as details unique to the "Polar" Variants only are described below.

For incubation or examination, investigation, storage or testing, a wide range of temperature control is always a decisive pre-condition for success in many laboratories. To deal cost-effectively with these requirements, the "Polar" Variants offer accurate and reliable control from 0°C to 50°C in the standard versions. The Contherm ZP21 microprocessor-based controller, featuring PID and "fuzzy logic" technologies, comes with two-step time and temperature programmability, and has EEROM protection to save set-points during

power failures. Inner doors of toughened glass allow excellent visual monitoring of samples, and soft-closing outer doors ensure jar-free culture growth. Contherm Biocell "Polar" variant incubators contain chlorine-free ozone-friendly refrigerants and oils only, positively achieving a CFC-free cabinet design.

PLCSCOMM Communication SOFTWARE
Windows-based remote control, monitoring, logging and file documentation system.
Supplied on an Auto-Install floppy disc, the PLCSCOMM program is an essential support tool for today's researcher, maximising the benefits available with the Contherm precision cabinets. It has been designed to run under the Microsoft Windows environment, and the ease with which complex operating programs can be set up is a quantum leap in versatility and user-friendliness.
With this system, it is possible to record readings and events for later viewing and graphing, to save and reuse individual user profiles and automatically assign files at daily/weekly intervals. It is recognised by QA Accreditation Bodies as an acceptable document trail.
Most PC systems come with two serial ports as standard. COM1: is usually taken up by the mouse

and COM2: is usually free. A common problem is that this effectively limits the number of cabinets able to be connected to two. Further, if a modem is fitted, no free ports are available.
The PLCSCOMM Communications Software solves this problem. It may be configured to acquire information from up to twenty Contherm PLCS4/5 or GP cabinets via a maximum of four standard COM: ports, using an expansion port available from Contherm.
Alternatively, if used with a PS/2 mouse and no modem, both ports are free for use with the PLCSCOMM software.
