LabGard ES Air Class II, Type A2 Biological Safety Cabinet

LabGard Air NU-543 offers the very best in personnel, product, and environmental protection through the use of airflow probe to monitor and maintain real time airflow and displays airflow speeds on the OLED interface. The ability to choose up to three (3) different access opening heights allows our customers the option to select a larger access opening to improve technician movement and reach; select a smaller access opening to lower your total cost of ownership; or select somewhere in-between to get the best of both heights.

Technology

AeroMax Electronic Control System

FlowGard™ Electronic Control System

FlowGard™ ECS offers a user-friendly design with rich functionality. Basic cabinet functionality (Motor Blower, Lights, UV Light, Outlet(s), Alarm Silence) is controlled through easily identifiable buttons. Cabinet's inflow and downflow airspeed are displayed on the FlowGard™ ECS OLED display screen. Airflow performance is monitored and controlled via intelliFlow™ (Airflow Sensor) the same technology used by service professional who certifies your cabinet at minimum once a year.

nitecare™ Night Setback Mode - Upon sliding the window sash into the closed position, the motor blower will continue to operate at a lower rate to save energy and maintain interior clean air conditions ready for use upon window sash opening.

Ultra High Efficiency Motor

A single ultra-high efficiency ECM motor with a properly sized fan blade minimizes energy usage while extending the life of filters. LabGard® offers the lowest total cost of ownership compared to other models.

HEPEX Zero Leak Airflow

HEPEX™ Zero Leak Airflow System

All LabGard® positive pressure plenums are surrounded by a vacuum relative to the room. Meaning in the event of a leak via gasket failure, all contaminated air in the plenum is still forced through HEPA filtration. The HEPEX™ system also works to provide true laminar airflow by evenly distributing plenum air over the supply HEPA filter. The flexible design eliminates any vibration transfer from the motor blower as well as creates a serviceable work environment for Certifiers after decontamination.



Safety is Priority Number 1

True Laminar Airflow

True Laminar Airflow

Unidirectional airflow moving along parallel flow lines at a constant velocity of 60 fpm (0.30 m/s) minimizes air turbulence within the work zone lessening the chance for cross contamination.

Dynamic Air Barrier

Dynamic Air Barrier

A strong inflow air velocity of 105 fpm (0.53 m/s) over an aerodynamic airfoil creates a dynamic air barrier offering maximum personnel protection.



Ergonomic Design Reduces Workplace Injuries

LabGard® offers a shorter reach into the work zone bringing work materials closer to you relieving stress on your arms, back and neck.

A standard plastic armrest eliminates cold conduction on forearms relieving tendons of any unnecessary stress.

NuAire Biosafety Cabinet Ergonomics

A recessed airfoil allows technicians to use the armrest without fear of blocking airflow.

A further recessed work-tray with spill lip protection lowers the work zone making it easier for lab techs to use pipettes or creating additional space for machinery such as a liquid handlers or TPN Compounding Systems.

Large user-friendly work zone

A large user friendly work zone offers more usable space while making the farthest corners easier to reach.



Long Lasting NuAire® Construction

No Two Cabinets Are Created Equal

LabGard® Biological Safety Cabinets are constructed from 16/18 gauge, type 304 stainless steel welded together as a uniform monolithic shell. The work zone features a coved back-wall insert welded into place creating double wall construction adding to the cabinet's integrity. LabGard® is Silicone Free and designed to provide long lasting safety.





Make it Easier on your Service Team

We at NuAire® have designed each LabGard® Biosafety Cabinet to be service friendly. 95% of service functions can be performed at the front of the cabinet. A flip down control panel creates a workable tray for service technicians. Access filters and the motor blower from the front of the cabinet with the removal of a safety panel.

Service Friendly Features

When it comes time to any type of internal service make it easy with our DECON101™ System. The DECON101™ System works with a variety of decontamination systems using Formaldehyde, Chlorine Dioxide or Vapor Phase Hydrogen Peroxide.
