CLASS II TYPE B2
Class ii type b2
The BTE Series Class II, Type B2 Total Exhaust BSC provides USP 797 & USP 800 compliant protection for the user and the product from gases/fumes, aerosols and particulate hazards. The work area is continuously bathed with positive pressure ISO 5/Class 100 HEPA-filtered air while creating a negative pressure airflow into the cabinet to provide user protection. All of the air entering the hood is ducted/vented to the outside of the building. BTE Series BSC’s are designed for the safe handling of cytotoxic agents and other hazardous drugs in Pharmacy and Oncology settings. This biosafety chamber eliminates cross-contamination and accidental release of pathogenic microorganisms or carcinogenic aerosols to the outside environment. Other applications include handling materials such as powders and allergens.
The work area is bathed with a HEPA-filtered unidirectional (laminar) flow ISO 5/Class 100 air to protect the product. Further, the exhaust air is HEPA-filtered to protect the environment from particulate and aerosol hazards. This filter removes organisms and particulates 0.3 micron in size with an efficiency of 99.99%. The laminar flow principle consists of moving individual streams of unidirectional, ultra-clean air along parallel lines with minimal turbulence. This Class II, Type B2 Biological Safety Cabinet is a 100% Total Exhaust unit. The BTE must be ducted (vented) to the outside of the building as there is absolutely no recirculation of air in the cabinet. This total exhaust feature makes the B2 hood suitable for not only handling particulates, but also fumes and gases.
