Containment Barrier Isolator - Hybird (Convertible Class III/Class I Biosafety Cabinet)

Your Practical Solution to cGMP Compliance

Containment Barrier Isolator - Convertible Class III/Class I Biosafety Cabinet (CBI-H) builds on Esco Pharma's success of CBI-III. It allows operators to work via a removable glove visor to convert the cabinet and function as a Class III or a Class I Biosafety Cabinet as per EN 12469 standards. In BSC Class III mode, the operator works through a glove port attached to a removable panel. It can be converted to a BSC Class I by removing the closure panel and attaching a blanking plate over the inlet HEPA filter.

To ensure maximum performance, commissioning and preventive maintenance of the cabinet must be done in both modes.
