2 Microbiological safety cabinet (MSC): Ventilated enclosure intended to offer protection to the user and the environment from Hazard Group 1: A biological agent unlikely to cause disease. the aerosols arising from the handling of potentially hazardous and hazardous micro-organisms, with air discharged to the atmosphere being filtered. MSC Class I: Safety cabinet with a front aperture through which Hazard Group 2: A biological agent that can cause human disease the operator can carry out manipulations inside the cabinet and and may be a hazard to employees; it is unlikely to spread to the which is constructed so the worker is protected and the escape of community and there is usually effective prophylaxis or effective airborne particulate contamination generated within the cabinet is treatment available.

NOTE A typical way of achieving this is by means of a unidirectional downward laminar airflow inside the cabinet and an air curtain at the front aperture.
4 MSC Class III: Safety cabinet in which the working area Hazard Group 4: A biological agent that causes severe human is totally enclosed and the operator is separated from the work disease and is a serious hazard to employees; it is likely to spread by a physical barrier ( gloves mechanically attached to the to the community and there is usually no effective prophylaxis or cabinet). Filtered air is continuously applied to the cabinet and the treatment available. exhaust air is treated to prevent release of micro-organisms.

Compact, highly specified, high performance Class II microbiological safety cabinets with unique double HEPA filtration. Applications Cell culture operations and handling of biological agents up to Hazard Group 3* where both retention efficiency (operator protection) and the provision of clean air conditions over the work area are required as well as total compliance with all the requirements of BS EN 12469: 2000. * ACDP Categorisation Benefits Carefully designed and extensively tested to provide assurance of microbiological safety when used with biological agents up to ACDP Hazard Group 3 (subject to proper siting, operation and maintenance).
6 Unique double HEPA filtration system and many other design features to facilitate safe and easy operation, cleaning, testing and maintenance Aerodynamically independent downflow and exhaust air fan systems to facilitate quick and easy set up Wide range of sizes, configurations and fumigation options to provide a solution for every laboratory and application Standards Compliance BS EN 12469: 2000. Certified by CAMR (now HPA) at Porton Down All HEPA filters H14 to BS EN 1822-1: 1998. IEC 61010-1: 2001. Installation to BS 5726: 2005 is recommended Air quality to ISO Class 5 (BS EN ISO 14644-1: 1999) and EC. GMP Grade A for a high level of product protection Principal Design Features Unique double HEPA filtration system comprising a primary (exhaust and main) HEPA filter and providing valuable benefits.

9 Dedicated ducting system and remote mounted extract fan. The Bio 2+ DB2 is a Total Exhaust' cabinet and 100% of the combined volume of the inflow and downflow air is exhausted via a HEPA filter to atmosphere via DB2. a dedicated ducting system and remote mounted extract fan. (B2 is the American NSF49 designation for Total Exhaust' class II microbiological safety cabinets). The Bio 2+ DRS is similar to the Bio 2+ D but is generously sized and has DRS additional features in order to accommodate Robotic Samplers and other equipment that might require Class II protection. The Bio 2+ R is designed to exhaust HEPA filtered air back to the laboratory via R. a dual in line HEPA filter and an integral exhaust fan. The Bio 2+ RRS is similar to the Bio 2+ R but is generously sized and has RRS additional features in order to accommodate Robotic Samplers and other equipment that might require Class II protection.
10 The Bio 2+ RD is designed to exhaust HEPA filtered air into a thimble extract system (provided by the client) via a dual in line HEPA filter, an integral exhaust fan and a special exhaust spigot. A thimble extract system takes the exhaust of RD. a microbiological safety cabinet into a specially designed room extract in such a way that the volume of air taken out of the room remains the same whether the cabinet is working or not.
