NuAire Lab Equipment founders

Customer First

Since its humble beginnings in Peters’ garage more than 45 years ago, NuAire has grown into a leading laboratory equipment company focused on understanding its customers' needs and tailoring solutions to meet those needs. The company’s original product lines included biological safety cabinets and CO2 incubators. With input from customers like you, NuAire has added many additional product lines, including centrifuges, animal cage changing and procedure cabinets, restricted access barrier systems, ultralow temperature freezers, polypropylene fume hoods, and much, much more. Today, our company operates out of three facilities in Plymouth and Long Lake, Minnesota, with over 300,000 square feet of manufacturing space. With a state-of-the-art robotic sheet metal facility, we can deliver you custom, innovative laboratory safety solutions in addition to the standard products that we sell.

To date, NuAire has sold more than 100,000 Biosafety Cabinets to customers in more than 150 countries, and there are now NuAire products in use on all seven of the world’s continents. Our products make lab work easier and safer, and our biosafety cabinets are celebrated for being quiet, easy to use, and efficient to operate while requiring less maintenance. As NuAire continues to grow, we are committed to continuously improving our products and expanding our offerings. We always strive to provide you with the highest personnel, environmental, and product protection possible.
