The Tissue Core has a C26 incubator/shaker, a New Brunswick C76 water incubator/shaker, a Thermo Model 2358 water incubator, a VWR 1224 water bath, four Forma 3110 CO2 incubators and two New Brunswick Galaxy 170S CO2 incubators.

Purpose:
Water baths are typically used to heat medium prior to inoculation with tissue culture cells. CO2 incubators are typically used to maintain a 37°C temperature and 5% CO2 gas phase for tissue culture cells in liquid or solid medium.

Specific Description:
The New Brunswick C26 incubator/shakers operate from 7°C over ambient up to 60°C. The C26 can shake from 25 to 300 rpm. The New Brunswick C76 water bath heats from 7°C over ambient up to 80°C and can shake from 50 to 300 rpm. The Thermo water and VWR 1224 baths can heat from ambient to 95°C. The Forma 3110 CO2 incubators heats from 5°C over ambient up to 55°C, with up to 95% humidity at 37°C and CO2 concentration from 0 to 20%. The New Brunswick 170S CO2 incubators heats from 4°C over ambient up to 50°C, with up to 95% humidity at 37°C and CO2 concentration from 0.2 to 20%.
