The ICSI Temperature and CO2 enclosure maintains a stable and uniform temperature and CO2 concentration all around the ICSI workstation.


Temperature is controlled by recirculating a stream of warm air inside the enclosure. Temperature accuracy is achieved by providing feedback from a temperature sensor placed inside the enclosure. Temperature uniformity is achieved by dual input / output air channels and by the action of the flow diffusors.


CO2 is controlled by gently infusing CO2 into the enclosure and by measuring gas composition with a Dual Beam Infra Red sensor conveniently placed inside the enclosure.


Ergonomic design allows free access to microinjection joysticks.

Ergonomic design allows easy access to the sample and the microscope

Micro-manipulator joysticks not enclosed

Temperature Unit


Okolab ICSI T & CO2 ENCLOSURE employs a Temperature Unit that generates warm air to raise the temperature inside the enclosure.


Superior accuracy is guaranteed by the interplay of three sensors: two for temperature and one for flow rate. The temperature sensors monitor temperature inside the enclosure and inside the Air Heater. The flow rate sensor controls the rate at which warm air enters the enclosure and ensures smooth operation and fast heating. A proprietary smart algorithm determines the minimum flow rate necessary to maintain the controlled temperature at the set point value.



Temperature range: from 3°C above ambient to 45°C

Temperature accuracy: 0.1°C
