Labculture Class II Type A2

Labculture Class II Type A2

Esco Labculture® Class II Type A2 Biological Safety Cabinet (E-Series) blends the latest generation of energy-efficient DC ECM motor technology with Esco's experience of more than 25 years in biosafety cabinet design. 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 Penetration Air) filters which operate at a typical efficiency of 99.999%, these filters 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 facilitates 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.
