HC20- Environmental chamber/Laboratory incubator


HC20 is used as a Reach in Environmental chamber/ laboratory incubator due to is ability to perform in wide temperature range(0°c to 70°c) with precise temperature control over the entire range. The heating/chilling incubator can be used in wide range of application including;

  • Protein crystal growth
  • Enzyme reactions and deactivations
  • Ligations
  • Incubating marine cultures below ambient
  • Culture growth above, below or at ambient
  • Storing DNA libraries
The HC20 has optional humidity range of 20to 90%RH*. Humidity set point is achieved via additive ultrasonic humidification method.

The HC20 reach in laboratory incubator is also designed to be used as a refrigerator for laboratory and as refrigerators for storage. The Lab refrigerator features all stainless steel interior and exterior construction with 2″ polyurethane CFC free insulation.

Cabinet standard features

  • Stainless Steel Exterior & Interior
  • Maintains temperatures between 0°c to 70°c
  • LED interior light
  • Recessed Door Handle
  • Door locks standard
  • Magnetic door gasket standard for positive door seal
  • Pre-Installed 4″casters with bumper brakes
  • Three (3) Pre-Installed shelves per section
  • Back wall plenum for even distribution of conditioned air

This reach in laboratory incubator/ laboratory storage chamber uses thermoelectric assembly for heating and cooling. This type of cooling/heating system completely eliminates need for conventional refrigeration system and failures due to mechanical components such as compressors thereby drastically increasing the life expectancy of each chamber. Maintenance cost of this chamber model is also lowered by the thermoelectric/Peltier driven heating/cooling system. The chamber is quiet  while in operation. Chamber temperature set points are tightly controlled using PID controller and a 3 wire RTD sensor.

 Temperature control features:

  • Control/Alarm notification via App( Watlow controller)
  • Simplifies Controller Management with Easy-to-Operate Graphic User Interface,LED display, Autotune capability
  • Provides Access to Advanced Scripting Capabilities
  • Save Controller Parameters
  • Access Stored Parameters
  • Log Controller Data
  • Control access via software
  • 2 programmable alarm
  • IP-65 Panel (front panel splash proof)
  • CRC protocol correction build in for error free communication
  • Visually interpret thermal data
  • Set multiple target temperatures and program steps for advanced applications like thermal cycling
  • Save and load script parameters from stored files on your disk drive
  • Multiple jumps and loops function for complex testing profile
  • Note: We offer 2 controller models- not all features are available in one model. Please specify your controller requirements. Refer to individual controller spec.sheet.
