Thermo Scientific 1300 Series A2 Safety Cabinets with Upgraded Features and New Sizes
MILFORD, Mass. – Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., the world leader in serving science, today announced the release of an expanded portfolio of the Thermo Scientific 1300 Series A2 biological safety cabinets. In addition to the existing four- and six-foot cabinets, the 1300 Series A2 portfolio is now available in three- and five-foot widths, maximizing internal work space while minimizing the external footprint. Delivering ultimate ease-of-use, the 1300 Series A2 biological safety cabinets also feature the new NSF-approved SmartPort, providing a clean, easy and safe access port for routing vacuum tubing and cables through the side wall of the biological safety cabinet. These upgraded features and new innovations are designed to further enhance the safety, efficiency and value for everyday laboratory requirements.
The 1300 Series A2 biological safety cabinets are available with choices of stainless steel or SmartCoat interiors and eight-inch or ten-inch work apertures. Featuring SmartFlow technology, the supply and exhaust blowers adapt in real time to provide the correct airflow parameters and maintain a safe working environment. The Digital Airflow Verification (DAVe) system increases safety by monitoring the pressure difference within the exhaust and downflow plenums and sounding an alarm if it varies by more than 20 percent. Reducing the laboratory energy profile is an important consideration both economically and ecologically, so the blowers use brushless DC motors to reduce energy consumption and heat output and, for added benefit, reduce noise as well.
The standard ergonomic features of the Thermo Scientific 1300 A2 series, such as its sloped front sash, a shelf to keep waste disposal and laboratory supplies within easy reach and a spacious, unobstructed work area, have been further enhanced by a new Thermo Scientific Ergolign laboratory saddle stool. It reduces back pressure and optimizes working posture for high efficiency.
