Incubators Market

Date: 2016-05

An incubator is a setup or a device that is used for growing cell cultures and maintaining them at specific temperatures, humidity levels and so on ensuring a favourable growth environment. An incubator, more commonly, is a device used in hospitals to provide a protective and controlled environmnet for premature babies or those born with health related issues. The first incubator was invented by Tanier, a french man in 1860.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), an estimated 15 million babies are born preterm, i.e. less than 37 weeks of gestation. This is a clear indication of the need for neonatal incubators. Neonatal incubators provide ventilation, jaundice management, heat therapy and other types of treatment that preterm babies tend to require. In some unfortunate cases, full term infants with some illness also need to be kept in the incubator for extended period of time.
