Incubation units

Aquabiolab designs and manufactures high quality life support systems designed for research with small-bodied marine life in a totally controlled environment.

Incubation units enable control of the incubation period by modulating the temperature and protect the eggs from accidental temperature variations and interruptions.

Operating in a closed circuit, the system requires very litle make-up water. This unit is composed of a physical and biological filtration module, a thermal monitron and incubators.


CCAC Guideline

'' The incubation units must be self cleaning or must include equipment that eneables a regular cleaning. Retention of detritus in the the units will favor bacteria, protozoaires and toxic mushroom profileration. It will also rarefy oxygen.''

Guideline 7

Aquatic facilities are complex systems that must be well designed to minimize stress to the fishes, promote efficient operation of the facility, and ensure a safe working environment for personnel.

Advantages and Benefits

Versatility and flexibility!

  • The system can be intergrated with mutiple types of incubators, such as column incubators, plate and basket iuncubators;

Have full control over your water parameters! Easy water management!

  • The Enviro-Monitron will enable precise control of temperature (± 0.1°C) and other parameters such as DO, pH, salinity, water make-up and more;
  • The units eneable the users to ajust the water-make up to a maximum of 10 per hour. Each incubator is also equiped with valves and tubbing to manage water entry into the system;
  • The Enviro-Monitron also offers the possibility to manage water recirculation percentage. From 0 to 99% per day by controlling the water make-up intake;

Prophylactic traitement made easy!

  • A water reservoir is incoporated into the hydrolic system to quickly replace evacuated water while prophylactic treatements are being conducted;
  • The potentially toxic agents such as fromol, chloramine and more are eliminated without causing a thermal shock to the eggs;
