Part #: NU-602

Features

The LabGard® ES (Energy Saver) NU-602 Class II, Type A2 Animal Handling Biosafety Cabinet is intended to be used for safe animal and cage handling in the laboratory. The cabinet is designed for maximum control over product quality and to offer protection to people working in the lab. The NU-602 was also created with ergonomics and ease-of-use in mind, so it is easy and convenient for lab technicians to use.


Designed for Convenience

Low Profile for Low Ceiling Heights

The NU-602 animal handling biosafety cabinet was designed with a low profile. This means that no matter how low the ceiling is in your lab, the cabinet will fit.


Workflow Configurations

The LabGard® ES NU-602 Class II, Type A2 Animal Handling Biosafety Cabinet offers the option to customize your workflow.


Dirty Cage Collection Option

The pass-through feature allows you to place dirty cages from cage-changing procedure through a door located on the side wall and into a biohazard bag for transport to autoclave. The pass-through door is completely removable for cleaning and can accommodate both mouse and rat cages. Class II biohazard containment is maintained through the cage collection process.


Refuse Disposal Option

The convenient system located below work surface allows you to dispose of animal bedding and waste under Class II containment conditions. Double bag disposal system includes outer bag fastened to the underside of the plenum with metal ring; inner bag fits snugly to work tray to hold refuse. Waste is collected in a 22-gallon can that sits on a platform with casters.


Sterile Cage Delivery Option

Autoclaved, sterile cages are placed in the sterile cage delivery system where wraps are removed in the clean airstream. Sterile cages are easily accessed by the operator through the cabinet work surface as the spring-balanced platform moves cages vertically into position. The delivery system can maintain up to 50 stacked disposable mouse cages in sterile bags.


Combinations

The larger nominal 6-foot (1.8 m) wide cabinets allow the ability to mix and match configurations. Combine Refuse Disposal with Dirty Cage Collection to create the perfect animal waste station. Dispose of animal bedding and waste within the sterile work zone and dispose of dirty caging through the side wall pass through collecting cages in a biohazard bag.


Ergonomics

Large Access Opening

A Large, 12-inch (305 mm) access openings allow for the easy transfer of the biggest mouse and rat cages improving your workflow.


Auto Lift

Electronically Adjustable work surface height from 31 to 38 inches (787 to 965 mm) [42 inches (1067 mm) with optional 4-inch (102 mm) base risers] accommodates the ergonomic needs of multiple users who may be sitting or standing.


Safety Features

HEPEX™ Zero Leak Airflow System

The HEPEX™ Zero Leak Airflow System in the biosafety cabinet is designed to keep lab personnel safe by ensuring contaminated air does not escape the cabinet. The system uses positive pressure chambers and ducts surrounded by negative pressure, which ultimately prevents the possibility of leaks. The HEPEX™ fabrics also protect the products inside, and they are chemical-, oil- and grease- resistant, as well as antibacterial.


True Laminar Airflow

The biosafety cabinet uses true laminar airflow, which minimizes air turbulence using parallel air flow lines at a constant velocity of 60 fpm (0.30 m/s), to reduce the risk of cross-contamination.


Dynamic Air Barrier

In order to create a strong air barrier to keep lab technicians safe, the NU-602 has a dynamic air barrier, set up using a steady inflow air velocity of 105 fpm (.53 m/s) over an aerodynamic airfoil.


Technology

ESSENTIALS Control System

It does not get any easy than controlling system parameters through power switches for fluorescent lights and/or ultraviolet lamps, interior outlets, and blower motor. A Minihelic® pressure gauge offers visibility into system performance. A motor voltage regulator, as well as primary and outlet power circuit breakers, provide quick access to service the most common service requests.


Pre-filtration System

A reusable pre-filter is located under the work surface to capture bedding, hair, and dander extending the life of your HEPA filters. The pre-filter is easily accessible and cleanable.


Ultra-High Efficiency Motors

An ultra-high efficiency ECM motors combined with the appropriately sized fan blades lower energy usage while extending the life of filters. LabGard® offers the lowest total cost of ownership compared to other models.
