Germfree has designed and built specialized Class III glovebox systems for laboratories that are equipped to receive high-risk unknown samples such as chemical and/or biological weapons. These laboratories are operated by the Department of Homeland Security, state and local Public Health Agencies, Police and Fire Departments, and military units of many countries. These Class III Biological Safety Cabinets are uniquely designed for the triage requirements of Laboratory Response Network (LRN) and Public Health Labs (PHL). The units utilize HEPA and ASZM-TEDA carbon filtration to provide the highest level of user protection against chemical and biological threats. The Class III BSC provides an environment for the safe and secure containment, transportation and analysis of suspect nuclear, biological, chemical (NBC) terrorism evidence from the facility receiving area to the analytical laboratory. The units can be fitted with Rapid Transfer Ports (RTPs) to facilitate chain of custody procedures, secure storage of Select Agents, and to simplify work flow and processing.
These Class III Biosafety Cabinets integrate with primary containment systems within the All Hazard Receipt Facility (AHRF). The technology was developed under a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) with the U.S. Army Edgewood Chemical and Biological Center.
BIOLOGICAL AND CHEMICAL FILTRATION
Germfree specializes in filtration systems for both biological and chemical hazards. Germfree uses Type C HEPA filters to protect against biological hazards and by using several different types of carbon, Germfree can offer protection from TICs, TIMs, and NTAs.
Germfree’s filtration systems are typically integrated into Class III BSCs or to building ductwork systems. Germfree also offers complete HVAC mechanical space filtration modules that integrate into existing buildings and new construction.
