Efficient use of valuable space

With the new 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 air flow 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% their “useable” internal volume after validation.

30 % more validated usable space

HettCube incubators due to their gentle air flow and edge-to-edge temperature uniformity provide up to 30 % more validated usable space in accordance with 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 similar capacity. The spacesaving 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 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 a comfortable handling.

Hettich incubation up close temperature

Save space

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

Hettich incubator external connection

External connection

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

Hettich HettCube 400 R incubator

Fast and easy access

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

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

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 incubator castors

Stay mobile

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

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 easily the samples in every corner.

Heat Compensation

Temperature flucuations are actively and immediately compensated for.
