BVBI SERIES Germfree’s BVBI Series is engineered to enhance both the performance of the cabinet as well as the overall airflow efficiency of the cleanroom. The air-return is positioned near the bottom of the unit. Germfree’s units are engineered to meet or exceed all advanced specifications for ISO 5 (Formerly Class 100) Laminar Flow Cabinets. These include: ISO 14644-1, US Federal Standard 209E and IES Recommended Practices.
Germfree manufactures Laminar Flow Hoods for a range of biopharmaceutical applications. Our BVBI series of all-welded stainless steel, vertical clean air benches provide a high degree of localized control for critical aseptic processes and the handling of sterile products. HEPA-filtered air continuously bathes the work deck removing organisms and particulates 0.3 micron in size with an efficiency of 99.99%. This ensures a smooth and uninterrupted flow of optimal ‘First Air’ to the process area. They are widely used in cGMP-compliant production areas. Germfree’s BVBI Series of Laminar Flow Hoods are an effective platform for preparing non-hazardous Compounded Sterile Preparations (CSPs).

A well-designed ISO Class 5 Laminar Flow Hood contributes to the operations of a cleanroom in relation to required Air Changes Per Hour (ACPH). The BVBI provides an additional advantage by drawing in air located toward the floor. By filtering the room air with the highest potential particle count; the BVBI can augment overall cleanroom efficiency. The low position of the bottom air-intake ensures that return air is not pulled from the fan-filter ceiling modules. This facilitates the smooth downward flow of HEPA-filtered air for other operations conducted near the hood.
