Class II, Type B2 – Labculture

Our Biological Safety Cabinets are containment units suitable for the preparation of low to moderate risk agents when there is a need for protection of the product, personnel, and environment. We offer a ranges of cabinets depending on the researchers needs and budged.

All of our biological safety cabinets use ULPA filters to treat exhaust air. ULPA filters have are tested to a typical effiecency of >99.999% for 0.1 to 0.3 micron particles; these provide better filtration capability than conventional HEPA filters that have a typical efficiency of >99.999% for 0.3 micron particles.

Class II Type B2 units can be used to handle volatile toxic chemicals and radionucleotides befcause by default it is hard ducted. Use this option if chemical vapor re-circulation into the work zone is not permitted.

Description

The Labculture® Class II Type B2 Biosafety Cabinet ensures Operator, Sample and Environmental protection against Microbiological Agents and Chemical Fumes. This is an ideal cabinet for use in experiments where recirculation of chemical vapor back to the work zone is prohibited, such as working with substantial amount of chemicals or with toxic chemical vapor, so the cabinet is ducted to an external blower for exhaust. The Type B2 Biosafety Cabinet incorporates the latest design features available on the Type A2 biosafety cabinet for safety and operator comfort based on more than 35 years of experience and innovation.

  • Labculture® Class II Type B2 biosafety cabinets are designed to provide operator, sample and environmental protection from microbiological and chemical agents.
  • ISO Class 3 work zone, using ULPA (Ultra Low Penetration Air) downflow filter which operates at a typical efficiency of 99.999%, giving 10x cleaner work zone over conventional HEPA filters.
  • Cleaning: The work space is a single piece of stainless without any screws or connectors.
  • Extra Protection: Isocide™ powder coating finish prevents microbial/bacterial growth on the exterior.
  • Operator Comfort: a 10-degree sloped front delivers optimal ergonomics for maximum operator comfort.

 

Key Benefits:

  • World-leading Personnel and Sample protection, achieved by utilizing the World’s most effective filter technology airflow geometry, and continuous airflow monitoring.
  • Highly energy-efficient, US-made DC ECM motor saves hundreds of dollars annually in energy costs and delivers stable airflow.
  • Ergonomic, featuring arm rest, angled front, and ADA-compliant.
