Thermo Scientific 1300 Series A2 BSC: Good for you, good for the environment
MILFORD, Mass. - Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., the world leader in serving science, has introduced a one-piece stainless steel interior option for the Thermo Scientific 1300 Series A2 Biological Safety Cabinets. Customers can now choose between a coated or stainless steel interior in either four foot or six foot models. Both interiors complement the advanced features of the 1300 Series A2, such as the unique SmartFlow™ and Digital Airflow Verification (DAVe) systems. These unique features provide superior containment and best-in-class energy efficiency, making the 1300 Series A2 range good for the user and the environment.
The SmartFlow technology independently adapts the supply and exhaust blowers in real-time to provide the correct airflow parameters for a continuously safe working environment. The intelligent speed control of the SmartFlow technology also ensures that when the front sash is closed the blower speeds are reduced by 70%, increasing HEPA filter life and reducing energy consumption. The DAVe system provides an additional level of safety by constantly monitoring the pressure difference within the exhaust and downflow plenums, sounding an alarm if they vary by more than 20 percent. Energy consumption is further minimized through the use of brushless DC motors in the blowers, which also reduces noise and heat output and ensures a much more comfortable user environment. In addition, ergonomic features such as the sloped front sash and the spacious and unobstructed work area reduce operator fatigue over longer periods of use.
The precise airflow control in the 1300 Series A2 BSC enables a SmartClean™ window function, which allows the user to lower the front sash for cleaning or filter inspection while maintaining a clean air curtain. User safety is also assured during cleaning, servicing and maintenance by the smooth edges of the interior components and an optional UV light.
