Transportable CO2 incubators

Cellbox Ground CD & Cellbox Flight CDI

To ensure the ideal conditions for any transport, we provide two device types – the Cellbox Ground CD and the Cellbox Flight CDI. These two boxes are near-identical, except for the carbon dioxide source and conditioning system – the CD uses disposable CO2 cartridges and the CDI dry-ice.

Due to international flight regulations, open gas canisters are not permitted on an aircraft. That’s why we had to find a solution for providing carbon dioxide without actually using a gas cartridge. Dry-ice naturally sublimates into gaseous CO2 – that in turn sustains the passengers in the Cellbox. The source of CO2 does however impact the operation period of the incubator.

The Cellbox Ground CD can be operated for more than 72 hours (at 5% CO2), while the Cellbox Flight CDI would need a dry ice refill after 24 hours. In addition to that, there are only two more small differences between the models: Firstly, the Cellbox Flight CDI weighs one kilogram less than the Ground CD and secondly, while both can be fitted with a GPS, only the ground variant can be tracked at all times.
