LabGard LP NU-640 Class II Type A2 Biosafety Cabinet

The console style NU-640 biological safety cabinet features the tall work access opening needed to work with large cages but in a low-profile configuration designed to fit in vivariums with low ceiling heights.

Overview

The console style NU-640 Class II, Type A2 animal handling biosafety cabinet features the tall work access opening needed to work with large cages in a low-profile configuration designed to fit in vivariums with low ceiling heights. This versatile design’s motorized height adjustment eases installation into otherwise inaccessible vivariums and adaptation to individual cabinet users’ ergonomic needs. A built-in footrest enhances comfort for standing operators. Built for a broad range of cage changing applications, the hinged window with a 14-inch (356mm) access opening allows a technician to introduce rat cages into the work zone with ample arm room to reach the interior area of the cage. The flat work surface can be easily raised and rested on support rods to access and maintain the pre-filter located underneath. The steel construction of the cabinet forms a core structure that will endure years of use. Simultaneously, an Ultra-high efficiency motor located at the bottom of the console design ensures enough reserve power to compensate for filter loading. The Aeromax™ control system visualizes plenum pressure and cabinet performance through a series of LED lights, raising an alarm if necessary.

Ergonomic Efficiency

The NU-640, with its innovative console model design, stands out as the quintessential solution for vivariums challenged by low ceiling heights. Its low-profile structure is specifically crafted to fit into spaces where traditional cabinets wouldn't, offering unmatched adaptability. However, it's not just about fitting in; the NU-640 prioritizes operator comfort and safety. Its unique design includes an adjustable work surface height feature, ensuring that technicians of any stature can find their perfect working position. This focus on ergonomics is crucial in reducing workplace injuries associated with repetitive tasks, a common concern in laboratory environments. With the NU-640, vivariums no longer have to compromise on space, functionality, or staff well-being.

Industry Leading Work Access Opening

The NU-640 revolutionizes vivarium operations with its unprecedentedly large access opening, specifically designed to accommodate the effortless entry and removal of even the largest rat cages. This expansive opening removes the everyday struggle of maneuvering bulky items in and out of a confined space, making the process seamless. The cabinet's enhanced 14-inch (356mm) work access opening height is a game-changer, significantly expanding the usable work zone. This innovative feature provides lab animal technicians with the invaluable flexibility to move their arms and hands freely above the cages, substantially simplifying cage transfers. With the NU-640, routine tasks are no longer cumbersome, thanks to the thoughtfully designed access dimensions that transform operational efficiency and ease.

Pre-filter Extends Life and Lowers Cost

The durability of primary supply and exhaust HEPA filters is paramount. Here, the unique challenge is the presence of animal hair and dander, which can swiftly overwhelm and reduce the efficacy of standard filters. However, this concern is effectively addressed with a specialized, reusable pre-filter positioned strategically beneath the work surface. This pre-filter is engineered to capture larger particulates, safeguarding the primary HEPA filters and allowing them to function more efficiently against finer contaminants. Not only does this extend the life of the HEPA filters, but the reusability of the pre-filter also curtails the need for frequent and potentially expensive replacements. Additionally, the cabinet's innovative design features a prop-up work surface, granting easy access for prompt and hassle-free cleaning and maintenance of the pre-filter. This thoughtful integration of features underscores a commitment to operational longevity and cost-effectiveness.
