Designed with the latest technology for safe and ergonomic examination, injection, biopsy and manipulation...

The chamber accepts conventional inverted microscopes with manipulators and can be adapted to accept a wide range of different microscopes from all the major global microscope manufacturers.*

All instruments and dishes in the chamber are maintained under optimum conditions of temperature, CO2 and humidity.

Filtered and VOC free environment through UV photo-catalytic oxidization together with HEPA & carbon filter.

As all equipment is located internally specimens are not affected by drafts from air conditioning ducts or unstable air environment typically found in laminar flow or biological safety cabinets.

The Cell-Tek 3000 IV chamber allows the scientist time to safely carry out procedures such as:

  • ICSI (Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection)
  • PGD (Pre-implantation Genetic Diagnosis)
  • Embryo biopsy
  • Assisted hatching
  • Embryo assessment at high microscope magnification

Accessibility to the instrumentation within the chamber is provided by no less than four hinged access doors in optimum positions at the top and front as well as two sliding iris arm ports providing hand entry to the semi-sealed environment during manipulation techniques.

The hinged top access doors allow for easy access to needles and needle holders of any selected manipulation system to allow holders to be taken out of the canopy to be replaced or exchanged.

Optional swing-out shelf modules can be located on either side of the canopy providing for storage of out-gassed dishes or multiwell plates. Specimens can also be introduced and stored on these shelves within easy access through the sliding arm ports.


The parameters of temperature, CO2 gas concentration and humidity can be set or switched on/off via the large touch screen. The touch screen controls have three levels of user access and display a graphic trend screen and CSV log files downloadable to memory stick. Higher levels of access allow for instrument parameter calibration changes compared against reference meters, as well as alarm settings, and further connection to laboratory LAN if required.


Tissue being observed in the CELL-TEK 3000 IV chamber is assured of the cleanest filtered and VOC free, circulated air. Its closed environment is virtually uninfluenced by ambient lab conditions that are often subject to toxic fumes like VOC and hydrocarbons stemming from paint, motor vehicles and general HVAC systems.

The CELL-TEK chamber incorporates in its airflow system a UV Photocatalytic Oxidisation Technology where no UV light is visible to operator or specimen exposure, combined with specially formulated high grade carbon and finite HEPA filters, a unique environmental air cleaning combination not previously seen in ART work stations.

The instrument is located for stability and mobility on a rigid powder coated steel frame located on 4 castors with additional foot operated lift locks securing the instrument when in normal operating position.

Controlled humidification within the chamber is possible by filling pre-filtered/distilled water in the special evaporation tray. Relative humidity (RH) set point to maximum 70% can be selected or switched off totally on the touch screen.
