Biosafety Cabinet Ergonomics

Advancements for Improved Safety Conditions, Productivity, Quality and Reliability for the reduction of common work place injuries.

Experience Ergonomics




Ability to Sit or Stand at a Range of Heights

Sit or Stand Ergonomics

NuAire Biological Safety Cabinets provide maximum knee/thigh clearance which improves the user’s ability to assume a proper posture. The maximum knee/thigh clearance is accomplished by a design improvement that reduced the plenum height beneath the work surface. The adjustable base stand provides the ability for laboratory personnel to optimize ergonomic conditions improving leg and forearm support.

Forearm Support for Comfort and Safety

Ergonomic Arm Rest

A wide work access opening provides forearm comfort while maintaining optimal airflow containment for personnel and product protection through a recessed front grill. A sloped armrest extension allows the forearm and elbow to be rested while holding up such laboratory apparatus as beakers, plates, etc. inside the work area zone area.

Effective Work Zone Area for a More "User-Friendly" Space

NuAire Biological Safety Cabinets provide the largest effective work zone area available that aids the cabinet user to access and manipulate more laboratory material in the cabinet with forearms at rest on the work access opening base. The ability to rest forearms and minimize reaching reduces arm, neck, and shoulder strain.


Ergonomics Makes Working Easy


Expanded Vision Zone to Reduce Awkward Postures and Proper Lighting for Reduced Glare

The frameless polished edge window in NuAire Biosafety Cabinets allow for greater visibility and better sight lines to the effective work zone area reducing awkward postures resulting in less eye fatigue as well as neck and shoulder strain.

Cool white fluorescent lighting reduces glare in the work zone area creating less eye fatigue during long work periods. The fluorescent lights are externally mounted and use an electronic ballast to minimize heat output within the work zone and the laboratory.
