6 cu. ft. Benchtop CO2/O2 Incubators
Oasis Benchtop CO2 Incubator
Caron's Oasis™ CO2/O2 Incubators are designed to protect and advance your life's research and work.

The carefully engineered interior components are designed to maintain high relative humidity and precisely controlled temperature and CO2. This environment will not only keep cultures secure, but create the ultimate conditions for your samples to flourish.

The Oasis™ keeps your cell and tissue cultures safe and sound. It is designed with your convenience in mind by including many features to make operating the incubator a pleasurable experience.

Advanced technology and a secure environment. The Oasis™ is engineered with components to provide exceptional conditions for the most reliable results in cell and tissue culture studies. Precision-engineered direct heat and IR sensor technology provides stable temperature and precision CO2 control.

Compact, sleek design. The 6 cu. ft. design takes up minimal space and is stackable so you can optimize your laboratory space. Each incubator comes with its own stacking kit for your setup convenience.

Rapid overnight decontamination cycle. Decontamination has never been so simple than with the push of a button. Caron's rapid overnight 90°C moist heat decontamination cycle is maintenance-free. The very last phase includes a drying cycle which pumps HEPA filtered air into the incubator. Messy cabinet wipe down and cleanup is eliminated!

Ergonomic, intuitive user interface. Incubator setup is simple and the large alpha/numeric display allows for at-a-glance monitoring.

O2 Model. Suppressed oxygen control is crucial in many applications, such as the research of acute and chronic diseases. These demanding hypoxic studies are made possible with our O2 incubator. The O2 incubators feature a strategically placed sparger, recovering humidity after door openings at a much faster rate and allowing cultures to cultivate at optimum environmental conditions.

Standard Features & BenefitsIncubators shown stacked
  • The Oasis™ is 6 cu. ft., compact and stackable, allowing you to attain the best use of your laboratory space.
  • The Model 6404 O2 incubator is available to support hypoxic applications.
  • It comes standard with a drift resistant, highly-reliable Infrared (IR) Sensor, allowing for quick recovery after the door is opened.
  • The interior is comprised of polished stainless steel with coved corners, which is highly resistant to corrosion, and allows for an easy and effective cabinet wipe-down when needed.
  • The adjustable shelves are readily configured to meet your application's need and slide out, making samples at the back of the chamber easy to access.
  • Caron's "tool-less" interior design allows you to remove the interior components effortlessly for routine cleaning or to setup multiple types of cell research.
  • The rapid Decon Cycle cleans the incubator overnight with the push of a button, minimizing downtime for decontamination.
  • The Oasis™ has a tri-zone method for temperature control, utilizing individual heaters, which are located on the outside of every interior wall, to ensure highly uniform temperature that blankets the inside of the incubator. Temperature is rapidly recovered after each door opening.
  • Caron's carefully designed airflow system maximizes airflow and results in rapid temperature and humidity recovery with optimal uniformity.
  • Our ergonomic, intuitive user interface has a built in message center. It allows for effortless setup, at-a-glance monitoring from across the room and simple adjustments to setpoints and calibrations.
  • Advanced data logging system records time stamped incubator parameters for on-screen viewing. Built-inOasis Benchtop CO2 Incubator help feature allows easy access to frequently asked questions.
  • Self diagnostic alarm system monitors all functions and controlled parameters and prompts the user in the event that any parameter exceeds programmable limits.
  • A wide range of popular accessories are available, which allow you to customize your incubator for your application.
Infrared Sensor

The Oasis utilizes a single beam, dual-wavelength IR CO2 Sensor to get the most accurate measurement of CO2 in the incubator. It is the leading, proven technology in the field of CO2 measurements and offers unmatched, precise control and stability over wide temperature ranges.
