Home > Specialties > Incubators


Definition : Equipment designed to maintain optimal environmental conditions (e.g., temperature, humidity) for living organisms including infants, usually in an integral enclosure. Incubators typically consist of a closed chamber where the appropriate environmental conditions are provided using heat and humidity sources, gas supplies, controls (e.g., temperature, humidity, gas composition), and measuring instruments; they may also include recorders and displays for continuous monitoring of the incubator chamber conditions. Many different types of dedicated clinical incubators both for infant care and laboratory tests and cultures are available.
