Logic+ A2 with model 800
Class II, Type A2 Biosafety Cabinets

These cabinets protect the user, product and lab. They recirculate 70% of the HEPA-filtered laminar air while 30% passes through an exhaust HEPA filter for discharge to the lab or optional canopy.

Cell Logic Plus B2 Scope-Ready with model 800
Class II, Type B2 (Total Exhaust) Biosafety Cabinets

These total exhaust cabinets protect the user, product and lab. They are designed to be hard ducted to the outside, exhausting 100% of the HEPA-filtered air outside the lab.

Class II, Type C1 Biosafety Cabinets

The first BSC with the flexibility to convert from A2 to B2 mode. Simple to use, with unmatched chemical safety.

4' Class I Enclosure with model
Class I Safety Enclosures

These enclosures use exhaust HEPA filters to protect the user and the environment from agents that require Biosafety Level 1, 2 or 3 containment but no product protection.

The Purifier Axiom Class II, Type C1 is the first biological safety cabinet that can be used in a recirculating Type A-mode for standard microbiological work, or can be connected to an exhaust system to function in Type B-mode for handling hazardous chemical vapors or radionuclides. The Axiom is an R&D 100 Awards for Innovation Finalist.

Purifier Logic+ Class II, Type A2 and Type B2 biological safety cabinets provide personnel, product and environmental protection from hazardous particulates and agents that require biosafety level 1, 2 or 3 containment. Purifier Cell Logic+ Type A2 and B2 biosafe cabinets have features specialized for cell research.

Purifier Class I biosafety cabinets and HEPA Filtered Enclosures provide personnel and environmental protection and are ideal for procedures that generate fine dust, handling suspicious mail, or weighing hazardous powders. They offer an economical alternative to Class II biosafe cabinets when applications do not require product protection.

Labconco's biosafety cabinets use >99.99% efficient HEPA filtration. Purifier Delta Series Biosafety Cabinets have been discontinued and replaced by the Purifier Logic+ Class II Biosafety Cabinets.
