Class I Biosafety Equipment

Germfree’s Class I Biological Safety Cabinets provide personnel protection for handling of low risk particulate and aerosols. Air flows from the room, past the operator and over the work area to provide a negative pressure air barrier to exhaust fumes, aerosols and other chemical irritants or odors. Class I BSC’s are available for applications including necropsies, surgeries, specimen dissections, tissue grossing, perfusions and histology work. Configurations include Pathology Downdraft Tables, Ventilated Workstations, and Balance Enclosures.

Germfree specializes in the manufacture and integration of advanced laboratory equipment for a wide variety of applications. We specialize in energy-saving workstations that have minimal exhaust CFM requirements. Our units are constructed of stainless steel and are designed to be easily cleaned and decontaminated. Our Class I BSC’s are available in standard and custom configurations to meet the demands of your specific application.. Please consult a Germfree Sales Engineer for more details.

Balance Enclosure

Germfree’s CSE Series of Compounding Safety Enclosures and Powder Containment & Powder Weighing Hoods protect the operator while weighing and transferring non-sterile powders and compounds. The Balance Enclosure consists of a main work area with one (CSES) or two (CSED) large hinged windows for the easy ingress and egress of large equipment. Pre-filters are located above the work area and swing down for easy replacement. The pre-filters aid in extending the life of the HEPA filter by removing large particles.

 

  • All Stainless Steel Construction to facilitate easy cleaning and provide durability
  • Single-sided and double-sided; 3ft., 4ft. and 6 ft., full-width work areas
  • Advanced Ergonomics

Downdraft Tables

Germfree manufactures Downdraft Tables for a range of pathology work in an open source area. We specialize in energy-saving workstations with minimal exhaust CFM requirements.

Downdraft

Germfree’s Downdraft Tables are ventilated workstations specifically designed for procedures in pathology/histopathology labs and animal research facilities. These units, often referred to as Necropsy Tables, provide protection during animal necropsies, surgeries, specimen dissections, gross dissections/tissue grossing, perfusions and preparation of histological slides as well as other histology work.

  • Downdraft Tables protect personnel and the working environment by drawing contaminated air away from the work area. The ventilated workstation operates under negative pressure to exhaust fumes, aerosols and other chemical irritants or odors. Contaminated air is vented through a properly configured exhaust system. Learn More
