Class III Biological Safety Cabinets: Custom Engineering Capabilities
Germfree manufactures Class III Biological Safety Cabinets for a wide variety of research and development applications. Additionally we specialize in the comprehensive integration of laboratory equipment into the Class III cabinets. Controls may be relocated outside of containment and ergonomic mock-up units are used to insure proper process flow and comfortable ergonomics. Class III Biosafety Cabinets for research can also monitor and control temperature & humidity and can be fitted with carbon filters for work with volatile organic solvents that are an adjunct to microbiological work.
Germfree is the world’s leader in the engineering, design, and manufacture of Class III Biological Safety Cabinets (BSC). Throughout the entire process, from concept to completion, Germfree facilitates every aspect of your project.
Germfree Engineers Safety
Germfree understands that your health and safety is directly related to the proper engineering and design of your Class III Biological Safety Cabinet. All Germfree Class III Biosafety Cabinets meet the most stringent leak tightness specifications in the industry. Negative differential air pressure and air flow rates are set at optimal positions to maximize safety and ergonomics.
There is always a physical barrier between the laboratorian and their work. Doors are interlocked to prevent accidental opening directly to the cabinet interior. Negative differential pressure is measured by digital pressure gauges with a back-up analog gauge for additional safety assurance. Audible and visual alarms alert lab workers to a low flow condition.
Germfree is Your Single-Source Provider
Throughout the entire process, from concept to completion, Germfree facilitates every aspect of your Class III project. From initial discussions to delivery and set-up, Germfree manages and guarantees every detail of your Class III Biological Safety Cabinet. A variety of processes assure adherence to exact user requirements for each Custom Class III Biosafety Cabinet.
On-Site Installation, Training, and Certification:
Service – Special Immunization Program:
Germfree factory-direct technicians have undergone special immunizations against uncommon bio-hazards. This means that they can enter many “hot” laboratories to provide service, maintenance, or modifications to Germfree Class III Biological Safety Cabinets.
Class III Biosafety Cabinet Applications:
Germfree Class III BSCs have been used in up to BSL-4 labs for many decades. These cabinet systems provide an important alternative to high construction and maintenance costs associated with positive pressure suit labs. Class III BSCs are used to provide protection from biological hazards as well as containing mass generation of aerosols and toxins.
Class III BSC systems can accommodate built-in equipment like incubators, autoclaves, microscopes, refrigerators, and analytical equipment. Design flexibility facilitates worker comfort and lab workflow while providing effective & efficient alternatives to ingress, egress and decontamination processes.
Germfree has the experience and expertise to design your Class III BSC for use with chemical hazards in addition to biological hazards. Germfree has many years of experience using carbon filtration (including ASZM-TEDA) systems to protect users from chemical hazards.
