Technology Inside

Ventilation: AirRoute TM
Our AirRoute TM ventilation system is IP55 certified and uses minimal energy.  The system protects you from voltage changes and offers first-in-class protection from dust and humidity. You can rest assured that your system will maintain the same temperature and humidity throughout the whole cabinet.

Humidity: Humisonic TM
HB incubators always keep the internal temperature and humidity to your set parameters. Our HumisonicTM System provides humidity to the incubator when necessary. Just add water to the tank up top! Also, don't forget to fill your bottom pan with water for additional support - as needed.

HB incubators offer two alarms:

  • High / Low Temperature Alarm (Plus room sensor)
  • High / Low Humidity Alarm (Plus room sensor)

Front & Back Access
Full access to your incubator makes cleaning so much easier! Just ask anyone who has tried a similar setup.  We decided to design these incubators in a way that makes simple tasks just that much easier.
