ARA – CO₂ Incubator (P170)

Visually simple, yet technologically complex.

Simple Culture

The P Series by ARA is a simple yet highly advanced CO2 Incubator, with intuitive touch screen control that displays real time graphical data. As for heating, instead of using forced air circulation, ARA has chosen the fan-less system, and developed our own intelligent thermally active surface technology for creating passive air circulation. This eliminates the risk of contamination in the chamber, and minimizes the exposed electronic parts in the enclosed environment. It is simple, yet complex.

Left or Right

Due to the use of modular hardwares, the user can easily reverse the door opening without ordering separate parts. The long belt like strip works as a door handle in either direction, without any modification. 

Solid Block Hardware

The key hardwares that form the P Series are CNC-milled from solid aluminum blocks to ensure the highest quality and durability.
