Thermo Fisher Scientific Launches Free-Standing Microbiological Incubators for Large Samples or High Sample Quantities

Thermo Scientific Heratherm Microbiological Incubators are Safe, Easy to Use and Efficient

MILFORD, Mass. (August 27, 2012) - Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., the world leader in serving science, today introduced new large-capacity Thermo Scientific Heratherm microbiological incubators in North America.

The new products complete the range of Heratherm® microbiological incubators, adding two more sizes for high sample volume or larger samples: 400- and 750-liter capacity. Designed with sample safety in mind, the units have excellent temperature performance for reproducible results.

The General Protocol incubators are designed for routine applications in pharmaceutical, medical, food and research laboratories. Gravity convection provides gentle airflow and minimal drying out for samples. Safety features include two measuring sensors and an automatic over-temperature alarm for peace of mind. The intuitive user interface and large vacuum fluorescent display are designed for ease of use.

The Advanced Protocol Security incubators come with mechanical convection technology for excellent temperature performance – keeping sample environment stable, even according to highest requirements. The unique 140° C decontamination cycle is comparable to sterilization, supporting the scientist in avoiding sample contamination. A sophisticated timer function, under-temperature and door alarms are additional features that make work easier and safer. An optional stainless-steel exterior meets demanding needs in pharmaceutical and clinical laboratories.
