Aquaguard Solutions for Disinfecting Incubators and Water Baths


A CO2 incubator and water bath are basic equipment required in tissue culture. However these also make fertile breading ground for contaminants due to the high humidity and temperature. As soon as contamination appears it can be difficult to eliminate  and severe damage can be caused. It is therefore essential to systematically clean and disinfect the equipment.
