-- MILFORD, Mass.- Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., the world leader in serving science, has introduced the new line of Thermo Scientific Safe 2020 and Thermo Scientific Maxisafe 2020 Class II biological safety cabinets. With superior personnel, product and environmental protection, these safety cabinets offer increased ergonomics creating a safer work environment for the user. Both cabinets are designed with innovative DC motor technology to maximize safety and energy efficiency. Available in four different widths (0.9, 1.2, 1.5 or 1.8 meters), the Safe and Maxisafe 2020 cabinets are ideal for labs where product and personal protection is of paramount importance.
With best-in-class containment, the H14 HEPA filters guarantee a maximum filtration efficiency of 99.995% at the most penetrating particle size (MPPS). The advanced Maxisafe 2020 has an additional filter system below the work area to protect the air flow components from contamination providing 100,000 times higher filtration efficiency than standard Class II cabinets. Importantly, the filter system can be changed with minimized contamination risk while the cabinet is in operation. Pressure sensor monitoring ensures safe airflow across the entire work surface and an easy-to-read display enables convenient at-a-glance monitoring of safety parameters. When closed, the front sash window provides an aerosol tight seal for additional sample and personnel protection.
Superior DC motor technology maximizes energy efficiency and reduces heat output, providing a more comfortable work environment with lower air conditioning costs. The Night-Set-Back mode decreases energy consumption by reducing blower motor speed when the front sash is closed. The transparent side glass windows maximize light and visibility, and the easily adjustable motorized front sash is angled at an optimal 10 degrees, ensuring excellent ergonomy. The sash is also hinged and can be fully opened for easy cleaning, which together with the optional cross-beam UV-irradiation, ensure thorough disinfection of the entire work chamber. A range of options and accessories enable the customization of the workspace. For example, the high quality, easy-to-clean stainless steel work surfaces are available as single or segmented modules.
Delivering maximum containment, comfort and convenience, the Thermo Scientific Safe and Maxisafe Class II biological safety cabinets are ideal for use in research laboratories, pharmacies, clinics or hospitals. They are compliant with the most stringent regulatory standards in the world and independently tested and certified to EN 12469 (Safe 2020) and to DIN 12980 (Maxisafe 2020).
