Edaphic Scientific supplies a portable, handheld meter or in-situ sensor for the measurement of carbon dioxide and/or oxygen in biological incubators. The incubator carbon dioxide meter, known as the GasLab Pro (ESCM-1000), is a low cost, easy to use device for the sampling of carbon dioxide. The incubator carbon dioxide sensor, the ESMH-100, is installed inside the incubator for continuous carbon dioxide measurements.

The incubator gas detection devices supplied by Edaphic Scientific are currently being used in many of the world's leading laboratories and universities. Some examples include Pfizer, CSR, Fisher & Paykel Healthcare, Baker Institute of Medical Research, Thermo Fisher, CSIRO, University of Melbourne, and many more.

portable meter

The GasLab Pro Multi Gas Sampling Data Logger (ESCM-1000) is a purpose built meter to check biological incubators.

The ESCM-1000 for biological incubators measures CO2 in the range between 0 and 10% and there is an option to include an additional oxygen sensor.

The GasLab Pro ESCM-1000 is delivered to you calibrated, with a certificate, and ready to measure. It is extremely easy to use and maintain - simply turn on and start measuring the CO2 levels in your biological incubator.

The GasLab Pro includes an internal pump that samples air from the biological incubator. This air is then measured for carbon dioxide and/or oxygen concentration. The air can then be returned to the biological incubator as a closed loop or ejected as an open loop.


how the incubator carbon dioxide meter works

Utilizing a micro pump, the device will draw samples in to the sensing chambers from the incubator allowing each sensor to take a fast and accurate measurement of the incubator sample.

The ESCM-1000 CO2 meter for incubators also contains a data logger for continuous, unattended measurements of carbon dioxide from the incubator. The collection of a time series, rather than a single, spot measurement, allows for the checking of the integrity and accuracy of carbon dioxide inside the incubator over a longer period of time.

The GasLab Pro also features safety alarms (80 dB), maximum and minimum readings, Time Weighted Average (TWA, 8 hour exposure, CO2 only), and Short‐Term Exposure Limit (STEL, 15 min. weighted average for CO2 only).


add another sensor to the ESCM-1000

It is also possible to include an additional sensor alongside the standard 0 to 10 % range CO2 sensor inside the CM-1000.

Additional sensor options include oxygen, carbon monoxide or methane.
