677

Plymouth, MN: April 8, 2014 – The world of laboratory animal handling just became a great deal safer thanks to an ergonomically designed biological cabinet design from NuAire. These next-generation units have already received approval from the NSF (National Sanitation Foundation) and are ANSI 49 Listed.

NuAire, a manufacturer of ergonomic laboratory equipment based in Plymouth, MN, is known for its innovative designs in animal handling enclosures. Now, NuAire is announcing the introduction of a revolutionary cabinet – the NSF listed LabGard ES NU-677 Animal Class II, Type A2 Animal Handling Biological Safety Cabinet and Cage Changing Station. It has energized the market with its ability to provide personnel, product, and environmental protection for sensitive animal handling and cage changing procedures.

The most remarkable innovation of this new workstation is its flexibility with options and accessories that allow a safer, more productive work environment for lab technicians. The NU-677 is both mobile and height adjustable, designed for maximum user comfort and adjustability to meet the requirements of the American Disabilities Act (ADA). Because the design incorporates a more usable workspace, it will reduce arm, neck and shoulder strain from repeated use better than any other model on the marketplace.

NuAire garnered the NSF/ANSI 49 listing for biological containment protection for both the operator and product. NuAire routinely validates to ensure maximum protection. The new design incorporates four optional feed hoppers, allowing technicians to access up to four unique diets within a sterile work zone. Also, animal hair and dander is captured in a pre-filter built into the back wall to help extend the working life of the HEPA filters. The result is a safety cabinet that can handle a 300 percent increase in filter loading without a significant reduction in air delivery. Meanwhile, lab workers are protected by an aerodynamic air foil that pulls air back into the front grill, protecting users from air-borne contaminants.

Above all, the advanced mechanics of the ECM motor technology drive down costs of ownership by 40 percent with their energy savings. ECM motors generate less heat and reduce stress on the HVAC systems while operating at lower decibel levels. The LabGard ES NU-677 earns its NSF listing with safety features for both products and personnel.

OHSU biologist Shoukhrat Mitalipov

Ross William Hamilton, The Oregonian
Shoukhrat Mitalipov, an Oregon Health & Science University biologist, has created human embryonic stem cells using cloning techniques, succeeding where others failed. The secret: carefully monitoring heat, chemicals and light levels, plus a dose of caffeine. To his right are two incubators where the cells grow in a low-oxygen environment. “That’™s the way we keep them happy,” he says. Ross William Hamilton/The Oregonian

Dripping grease fuels the flames that jump above a wide metal grill as Shoukhrat Mitalipov nudges hotdogs and flips burgers. The office cookout, behind the Oregon National Primate Research Center in Beaverton, is unseasonably cold and cloudy.

You wouldn’t know it to look at him, but the Portland biologist, has stirred up an international hornet’s nest around gene research, cloning and stem cells. The day before, he was on the phone with reporters around the world, defending his techniques to harvest human embryonic stem cells for use in future treatment of Parkinson’s disease and other conditions.
