  • 900 mm, 1200 mm, 1500 mm or 1800 mm
The Mars Pro class II safety cabinet is a triple filter cabinet with a safe filter change system for the under bench filters. The triple filter technology in this biological safety cabinet ensures elimination of any cross contamination as the air in the work chamber has pass through two sets of HEPA filters.
This makes the Mars Pro the ideal choice of safety cabinet for working with hazardous materials such as cytostatic, virus manipulation and category 3 pathogens.
   

Sirius safety cabinets

Sirius is a compactly constructed Class II biological safety cabinet and has the same inflow and down flow as a class II cabinet and provides the same levels of operator, product and environment protection. 

The individual safety cabinet offers complete portability and enabling suitable and convenient positioning in your laboratory. 

Two different types available
It is available with a full work opening of 200 mm giving an easy access to the work area or alternatively with access port holes enhances operation protection whilst at the same time conserving energy.

True laminar airflow, exceeding class 100, eliminates the risk of contamination of the samples and minimizes any cross contamination possibilities.

The safety cabinet is ideal work station for cell culture, microbiology, pharmaceutical and cytostatic applications.


 
   

Mars B2 100% exhaust safety cabinet

Mars B2 is a class II 100% exhaust biological safety cabinet, which provides operator, product and environmental protection with possibility of high window opening. The cabinet has as well a 200 mm front aperture and should always be ducted.

The safety cabinet is similar in many ways to the standard Mars cabinet. The only difference is that the Mars cabinet is 70% recirculation and 30% exhaust, whereas the Mars B2 is 100% exhaust.

This safety cabinet is suitable for microbiological work which requires sterility of product but may involve the use of small volumes of solvents, acids or chemicals that may normally require fume hood extraction. However the microbiological safety cabinet should not be used as a fume cupboard.

   

Orion 100% exhaust safety cabinet

Orion is a class II 100% exhaust safety cabinet, which provides operator, product and environmental protection. The cabinet has as well a 200 mm front aperture and should always be ducted.

The Orion safety cabinet is similar in design (but not the same) as the Mars Pro class 2 biological safety cabinet. It has a different safe filter change system. Thereby, the filters in the Orion are changed from the front, whereas the filters in the Mars Pro safety cabinet are changed from the inside. The exhaust for the Orion microbiological safety cabinet is on the side at the bottom, whereas on the Mars Pro cabinet it is on the top.

Orion is generally used like the Mars Pro when a safe filter change system is required.

The Orion safety cabinet is suitable for microbiological work which requires sterility of product but may involve the use of small volumes of solvents, acids or chemicals that may normally require fume hood extraction. However the safety cabinet should not be used as a fume cupboard.

Safe change pre-filter system make the cabinet ideally for animal cage changing and animal handling procedures.

Exhaust options

For control of the exhaust of your class 2 safety cabinet, we have different options, which you can choose between. Below is an overview of what we can offer in the exhaust category. 

Exhaust connections for the external ventilation
If you want your safety cabinet to be connected to the external ventilation system in the laboratory, we have three different options to choose between. 
  • A ducting plate ø200 mm for direct connection to the external ventilation. The height of the cabinet is extended with 45 mm and the connection pipe is additional 55 mm. 
  • An antiblow back valve with side ducting ø200 mmm for direct connection to the external ventilation. The height of the cabinet is extended with 250 mm. 
  • An antiblow back valve with straight ducting ø200 mm for direct connection to the external ventilation. The height of the cabinet is extended with 250 mm and the connection pipe is additional 55 mm. 
When buying an exhaust connection for your safety cabinet, a signal PCB for the external ventilation will be supplied at the same time in order to be able to use the exhaust connection. The signal PCB gives a potential free signal to the ventilation system regarding the safety cabinet's status (e.g. full speed, reduced speed or stop). There are four potential free signal switches at the PCB. 

Exhaust filters
For extra safety, you can have a double HEPA exhaust filter mounted for the exhaust, thereby the air will pass through a double HEPA filter before being exhausted. Please note that the height of the safety cabinet will increase with 150 mm.   

Measurement of the exhaust flow
For measurement of the exhaust flow, we are able to supply two different options.
  • A 3rd sensor option with pressure switch for measuring the pressure in the plenum or the ventilation system. It will give an alarm in case of too low or too high pressure, depending on how the wire is connected to the main board. 
  • A minihelic which will be mounted in the back wall to measure the pressure in the pressure plenum. 

Carbon exhaust filters
Activated carbon filters can be equipped on the safety cabinets to trap vapours. It is an absorbent filter that will retain certain pungent vapours and solvents passing through the filter inside the safety cabinet to control odors or chemical smells. It does not trap particulates, so it is often used together with a HEPA filter for retention of the particulates.  

Please contact us with your requirements and we will advise the optimal carbon filter solution to your specific application.
