The optimum combination of Safety, Performance and Ergonomics, Esco Labculture® Class II Type A2 Biological Safety Cabinet incorporates Esco’s experience of more than 20 years in biosafety cabinet technology. The Labculture® combines a multitude of design, construction and proprietary technological considerations to provide optimum operator, product and environmental protection. Utilizing 2 minipleat ULPA (Ultra Low Air Penetration) filters which operate at a typical efficiency of 99.999%, these surpass the conventional HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) filters in contamination protection. Esco Labculture® features a 10-degree sloped front for maximum operator comfort. A single-piece stainless steel work zone and the absence of screws or connectors in the work zone facilitate ease of cleaning after experiments. The ISOCIDE™ powder coating finish prevents microbial/bacterial growth on the exterior and delivers a sleek, elegant appearance fitting for the leader in biosafety cabinet technology.
