Class II, Type A2 Biological Safety Cabinets - Airstream

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 A2 units can be used to handle minute quantities of volatile toxic chemicals and trace amounts of radionucleotides when thimble ducted. Use this option if chemical vapor re-circulation into the work zone is permitted. Compare your requirements below to find the correct Biological Safety Cabinet for your lab.
