One Solution for all culture

AD-3100 CUBE

Drawer Incubator

Commonly known as the "CUBE", the AD-3100 provides the safest, most versatile solution for cell culture applications. There are 4 independent chambers which completely operate autonomous from each other, as if there were four individual incubators set in one unit. Each chamber has its own individual temperature control and gas mixing systems, all protected by an alarm system set by default. The "CUBE" has been widely used in the US, Europe, China, East Asia, and the Middle East since 2010.

Multiple Cultures with Different Environments - Enter the "CUBE"

The AD-3100 Multi-Drawer Incubator (known as the "CUBE") has four truly independent chambers, each with fully independent control over temperature and gas mixture. This allows you to create the optimal environment for each culture according to the stage of the culture, the media being used, and other variables, thus ensuring the best outcomes for your patients!

Dry or Humidified Culture?
The choice is yours

Astec's Multi-Drawer Incubators offer extreme versatility for optimal results. They can be used in both dry and humidified conditions, allowing you to choose the best environment for each culture. The multi-drawer "CUBE" incubator can even simultaneously accommodate both dry and humidified conditions in different drawers!

Heat-Wise (RH-3100) Option

Used as a straightforward satellite incubator in your workstation.

Safe, Simple and Robust

Just position the hand-held chamber on the Heat-Wise and use it as a straightforward satellite incubator in your workstation.
Heat-Wise is offered for both the Split Lid Hand-Held Chamber (HC-3100-2) and the Single Lid Hand-Held Chamber (HC-3100).

Thoughtful Design
With You In Mind

Our drawers are designed with the customer in mind!
The handles on the drawers are curved all the way with a grip on the rim. Smooth drawer sliding rails allow the drawers to move in and out without any disturbance to the samples stored inside.
The unit is also very easy to maintain and clean! The drawers are removable for easy cleaning and access for maintenance. The main incubation block is made of aluminum and is autoclavable.

*A universal type bottom plate to fit most common plasticware from various manufacturers is the standard option. A customized bottom plate can be made to order if desired.

Renovated Split Door Option

With the new divided lid option, dishes for up to two patients can occupy the same drawer. This unique feature allows you to access the desired dish in one chamber without disturbing others, while keeping each patient's dish separate in a compact environment.

The drawers are detachable and can be easily picked up and placed back on the tray, making this unit exceptionally easy to clean and maintain.

The main incubation block is made from Grade A aluminum and is autoclavable.
