Automated Laboratory Incubator


TundraStore with door open


Sterilizes itself with dry heat – over 150 C for 3 hours and is the only validated sterilization procedure of any market available incubator. It exceeds even the most stringent dry heat sterilization protocols, killing even extremophiles and prions.


Insulated with aerogel (also known as frozen smoke), the lowest-density solid and best insulator known to man.

Comprised of air pores trapped in a dendritic microstructure, aerogel blocks all three forms of heat transfer: conduction, convection, and radiation.

Dual sets of automated doors minimize exposure of the internal chamber to the environment.
