May 20, 2014 - Featuring Microglow IR light source, CARBOCAP® Carbon Dioxide Probe GMP231 provides incubator manufacturers with carbon dioxide (CO2) measurements and sterilization durability at up to 180°C. This enables facilitated and complete sterilization of incubator with probe in place. Along with 4-point NIST traceable calibration for CO2, features include CO2 sensor measurement optimized for 5% CO2, measurement range of up to 20% CO2, and full temperature and pressure compensation.

Vaisala Releases a New Carbon Dioxide Probe

10-D Gill Rd.
Woburn, MA, 01801 1008

Press release date: May 12, 2014

The Vaisala CARBOCAP® Carbon Dioxide Probe GMP231 has been released. The GMP231 is designed to provide incubator manufacturers with accurate and reliable carbon dioxide measurements and sterilization durability at high temperatures. The probe is based on Vaisala's patented CARBOCAP® technology and features a new type of infrared (IR) light source, Microglow.

With Microglow, the performance of CARBOCAP® sensors has been even further improved. Microglow represents next generation infrared technology that solves many of the challenges (e.g. high temperature durability and limited lifetime) that impact traditional infrared sources, or incandescent light bulbs. Thanks to these advancements, the GMP231 offers superior durability and allow for heat sterilization temperatures of up to 180 °C. This enables easier and more complete sterilization of the incubator with the probe in place, removing the need to decontaminate the probe separately. This saves the end-user time and further reduces the risk of contamination.

The GMP231 has been developed together with a major industry partner and is designed for CO2 incubator OEM's. Many life science applications, such as growing and storing cell cultures, require the carbon dioxide (CO2) concentration to be measured and controlled. The required CO2 atmosphere, along with the temperature and humidity, is commonly generated with a special climate chamber called a CO2 incubator. Incubators are regularly sterilized, for example before new samples are put inside. An incubator equipped with the GMP231 provides a reliable and carefree CO2 measurement solution, allowing the end-user to concentrate on their main work.
