Class III Cabinets provide the highest level of personnel, product and environment protection against agents assigned to Biosafety Levels 1, 2, 3 and 4. They are frequently used for handling the deadliest biohazards such as bacteria, viruses and microorganisms.
Class III cabinets can be custom-built to suit different process and budget requirements of the facility. Multiple Class III cabinets can be joined together in a "line" to provide a larger working space. Several equipment, such as refrigerators, shelves, microscopes, centrifuges, incubators, etc., can be installed inside the Class III cabinets upon request.
Isolators are clean air devices that creates an almost complete separation between a product and its production equipment, technical personnel, and surrounding work environment. Isolators are generally used in applications requiring a high degree of protection from external elements or contaminants, and they can also serve as alternatives to sophisticated cleanrooms. Isolators typically feature built-in air filtration systems capable of significantly lowering a particle count in an enclosed area, and their relatively compact size makes it easier to clean their interiors with gas or vapor sterilizing agents. Isolators can be configured to have either positive or negative pressure relative to the surrounding environment depending on the application. Positive pressure isolators provide product protection against contaminants hence maintaining sterility. Negative pressure isolators on the other hand, provides personnel and or environment protection by containing the hazardous or toxic materials inside the isolator.
