Biosafety cabinets are a vital part of research, hospital, and industry laboratories worldwide, creating a clean and ventilated workspace for research, development, diagnosis, and drug preparation.
Training courses provided by the Bosch Packaging Academy support Alcon employees to ramp up expertise for SDR sterilizers.
Over the last several years, Biological Safety Cabinet (BSC) manufacturers have lowered downflow velocity while maintaining inflow velocity in an effort to increase energy efficiency, reduce exhaust system requirements and lower BSC Noise and vibration levels. However, the lowering of downflow velocity may come with a consequence of greater lateral airflow movement within the workzone creating greater potential for cross contamination.
The purchase decision should not be taken lightly, or solely driven by price. Careful consideration is necessary before venturing into the used resale market for biological safety cabinets, or other laboratory equipment.
The purpose behind downflow booth design is to provide operator protection during the handling of potent powders. Clean air from the ceiling plenum is distributed evenly across the whole of the work area pushing any respirable dust generated downward and away from the operator’s breathing zone.
When considering the replacement of a ULT ten years old, or older, there are many variables to consider. New technology solves some of the issues found in older freezers and reflects new trends in Ultra-low Range (ULR) freezer construction.
The new era of the pharmaceutical industry has been facing expiring patents and a consequent increase in R&D expenditure addressing also a rapidly growing demand for anti-cancer drugs.
