• Ergonomic and safe research station for cell research applications • Scope-Ready™ option allows a microscope to be safely integrated into the biosafety cabinet • Temp-Zone™ option incorporates a temperature controlled area to the work surface • Meets ISO Class 5 (formerly Class 100) conditions per ISO 14 644-1 and -2 • The Logic’s ECM is the most energy efficient motor in the industry and incorporates the patented filter monitoring system
Cabinets are specially designed with cell researchers in mind, while also providing protection from hazardous particulates such as agents that require biosafety level 1, 2, or 3 containment. Laminar flow cabinets are designed to discharge HEPA-filtered exhaust air directly into the laboratory. Filter monitoring system uses an electronically commutated motor (ECM) to precisely control airflow without the need for airflow sensors. The motor is programmed to consistently deliver the precise volume of air required, even as filters load. The ECM consumes up to 60% less energy than conventional motors.
All contaminated ducts are under or surrounded by negative pressure. The negative pressure plenums capture any contamination, and force the air through the HEPA filter, preventing its escape into the laboratory. Supply and exhaust HEPA filters are 99.99% efficient.
Angled, tempered safety glass sash with counterbalanced, antiracking mechanism is sloped at 10° for closer, more comfortable viewing than vertical sashes offer. The sash may be fully closed when the cabinet is not in use. Large 21.7" (54 cm) sash opening height and 27.0" (69 cm) viewing height offer greater viewing area and easy access for loading and cleaning. LCD information center is mounted on the interior right side wall in the user’s line of sight for at-a-glance monitoring of cabinet conditions. Unobstructed work area includes a hermetically sealed type 304 stainless steel liner and removable stamped, one-piece dished work surface with lift knobs. Contain-Air™ negative pressure channel draws air in, preventing loss of containment at the top of the sash.
Common Cell Transformed into Master Heart Cell By genetically reprogramming the most common type of cell in mammalian connective tissue, researchers at the University of Wisconsin—Madison have generated master heart cells — primitive progenitors that form the developing heart.Improving Regenerative Medicine Lab-created stem cells may lack key characteristics, UCLA research finds.Muscles on-a-Chip This study may help explain why stem cell-based therapies have so far shown limited benefits for heart attack patients in clinical trials.3-D Printed Lifelike Liver Tissue for Drug Screening A team led by engineers at the University of California, San Diego has 3D-printed a tissue that closely mimics the human liver's sophisticated structure and function. The new model could be used for patient-specific drug screening and disease modeling. Therapeutic Approach Gives Hope for Multiple Myeloma A new therapeutic approach tested by a team from Maisonneuve-Rosemont Hospital (CIUSSS-EST, Montreal) and the University of Montreal gives promising results for the treatment of multiple myeloma, a cancer of the bone marrow currently considered incurable with conventional chemotherapy and for which the average life expectancy is about 6 or 7 years.Cat Stem Cell Therapy Gives Humans Hope By the time Bob the cat came to the UC Davis veterinary hospital, he had used up most of his nine lives. Bile Acid Supports Production of Blood Stem Cells A research group at Lund University has been able to show that bile acid is transferred from the mother to the foetus via the placenta to enable the foetus to produce blood stem cells.New Biomarker to Assess Stem Cells Developed A research team led by scientists from UCL have found a way to assess the viability of 'manufactured' stem cells known as induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs). The team's discovery offers a new way to fast-track screening methods used in stem cell research.Tricked-Out Immune Cells Could Attack Cancer New cell-engineering technique may lead to precision immunotherapies.Edited Stem Cells Offer Hope of Precision Therapy for Blindness Findings raise the possibility of treating blinding eye diseases using a patient's own corrected cells as replacement tissue.
