Technologies to provide precise, user-defined control of temperature and CO2 are widely available in CO2 incubators, but methods to control relative humidity (RH) while preventing the formation of condensation are still evolving. This webinar will explore the various factors that affect RH in CO2 incubators, as well as evaluate the effects of the available humidity control/management technologies on culture growth, contamination prevention/control, and condensation.
As an attendee, you will learn more about:
- How you can be sure that your incubator provides active humidity control
- What surface temperature gradient and RH sensor accuracy have to do with condensation
- Whether you can trust that your incubator is really providing you with 95% RH
