Thermo Fisher Scientific launches free-standing heating and drying ovens and incubators

Aug. 30, 2012

Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. has introduced new large-capacity Thermo Scientific Heratherm heating and drying ovens and microbiological incubators in North America. The ovens complete the range of Heratherm ovens by adding two more sizes for high sample volume or larger samples: 400- and 750-liter capacity. The units use less energy to operate (up to 23% less) than previous models. All models connect to a 240V circuit with standard Nema 6-20 plug, so there is no need for hardwiring.

The General Protocol ovens are designed for day-to-day drying and heating applications. Gravity convection technology ensures gentle airflow. The system includes flexible shelving, a timer function offers energy savings, and the units can easily be installed and moved as needed. The Advanced Protocol ovens feature mechanical convection technology for fast drying and optimal temperature distribution.

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. The Advanced Protocol Security incubators come with mechanical convection technology for excellent temperature performance—keeping sample environment stable, even according to the highest requirements. The 140°C decontamination cycle is comparable to sterilization, supporting the avoidance of sample contamination. Additional features include a timer function, under-temperature and door alarms, plus an optional stainless-steel exterior. Learn more about Thermo Fisher solutions.
