Overview

Care with confidence
Innovative yet intuitive, the Panda Incubator is fast to learn and easy to operate. Its compact, flexible design combines the clinical support you can rely on with the stable thermal performance babies need. Consider it your warm, helping hand.

With it, you can confidently manage busy NICUs and special care nurseries with limited space. You will redefine simplicity and reimagine operations. And you will give your tiniest patients the quality care they need for a strong start and a bright future.

Benefits

Even caregivers need a warm, helping hand
Newborns in your care need your soft touch, your empathy, and your assurance that they will grow and develop, and go home healthy. The Panda Incubator helps provide reliable thermoregulation supported by technology that is easy to learn and use.

Reliable
Provides precise thermoregulation and humidification with Cascade Control (the same technology as used in Giraffe). To reduce admission wait times, the Panda Incubator ramps up in under 30 minutes, takes less than 5 minutes to recover its temperature from porthole openings and less than 15 minutes to recover when the door is opened2. The Panda Incubator also features dependable baby weight measurements for accurate thermal settings, and a UPS option for streamlined intra-hospital transport. ‘Steam and tubeless humidification’ (the same technology as used in Giraffe Incubator) helps to reduce bacterial growth and promotes effective cleaning.

Intuitive
Featuring a touch screen smartphone-like interface, context specific alarm help, and patient-based temperature suggestions, 96% of clinician’s report that they can confidently use the Panda Incubator after just 15 minutes of self-learning provided by the GE Helpbot1.

Flexible
Compact, easy to move, and equipped with handles on both ends, the Panda Incubator is ideally suited to managing a high volume of newborns in a crowded NICU or special care nursery. The rotatable display and dual access external tilt enables flexible bed positioning either parallel or perpendicular to the wall, maximizing your workspace.

Simple
Panda Incubator has up to 50% fewer parts to clean and is up to 41% faster to dissemble and reassemble compared to similar products in the market today1.
