Efficient use of valuable space

With the 43 in. touch screen, HettCube incubators and cooled incubators guarantee intuitive operation with flexible and individual setting options and many new features.

The proven combination of natural and forced convection ensures stable and homogeneous temperatures in a much larger part of the interior than conventional incubators. This offers you up to 30% more validated useful space with the same interior space. In addition, the high design of the HettCube incubators requires up to 50% less floor space with comparable capacity.

Even Temperature Distribution

HettCube incubators combine the advantages of natural and forced convection. The fan is housed outside the usable space so that there is a low airflow inside the incubator. Temperature is maintained by radiated heat, preventing the formation of hot spots.

Maximum usable space in the smallest footprint

Most incubators lose up to 10% of their “useable” internal volume after validation.

30 % more validated usable space

Due to the HettCube’s gentle airflow and edge-to-edge temperature uniformity, they provide up to 30 % more validated usable space per DIN 12880:2007-05 than a traditional incubator with the same internal volume.

50 % smaller Footprint

The HettCube’s upright design requires up to 50 % less floor space than a traditional incubator with a similar capacity. The space-saving footprint allows you to nearly double your capacity by accommodating two HettCube incubators within the same footprint as one conventional incubator.

User Experience

HettCube design features make for an uncomplicated, trouble-free user experience.

Hettich stainless steel incubator

Easy cleaning

The internal lining, drawers, and shelves are made of stainless steel and can be readily removed for thorough cleaning and autoclaving.

Hettich incubator external connection

External connection

One bushing on the rear panel (42 mm opening) for independent measurements and external devices.

Quiet operation

Our incubators are quieter than normal conversation when running, and will not increase the noise levels within your lab. A HettCube incubator has a remarkably low noise output of ≤ 44 dB(A).

Hettich rack for petri dishes and Lowenstein shelf

Maximum use of space

Get higher loading capacities in less space by using the special inserts. Our rack for Petri dishes and the Loewenstein shelf, allows large numbers of cultures to be processed quickly and economically. They provide more space, clear order and comfortable handling.

Fast and easy access

HettCubes need only one door and do not require an inner door. This allows for actual one-hand operation. A HettCube incubator will close automatically at an opening angle below 90°. A magnetic mechanism assists this automatic closing.

Stay mobile

The HettCube 400 and 600 models have heavy-duty casters for moving them to the desired position. Once in place, they can be fixed with adjustable feet.

Save space

The door does not require space at the side to open. Meaning the incubator can be positioned in a corner or close to other lab equipment. The door hinges can be easily swapped from one side of the incubator to the other.

Optimum safety

The practical door-locking mechanism locks both the door and the control panel at the same time. This prevents inadvertent changes to parameters and harmful effects on samples.

Hettich incubator rails on tray system

Unimpeded access

The stable telescopic rails of the Hettich Tray System (HTS) can be extended up to 70% horizontally. This allows you to reach the samples easily in every corner.

Heat Compensation

Temperature fluctuations are actively and immediately compensated for.
