The Automation Partnership (TAP) has introduced its new mobile class II biological safety cabinet. The cabinet, configured specifically for the Fill-It™ automated tube filling system, will ensure scientists can create a safe, aseptic environment to use Fill-It in different laboratories within their facility.

The cabinet features airflow and biological safety performance standards of a Class II biosafety unit and is designed for maximum user convenience. It comes with casters and variable height adjustment to make the cabinet easy to move between laboratories. This allows the unit to be manoeuvred through doorways and around laboratory furniture, as well as enabling surface height adjustment, permitting short and tall scientists to work with the cabinet.

The cabinet has been fully tested to ensure continuous airflow is maintained when Fill-It is in situ and its specially configured sliding glass door also allows fully protected, yet efficient access to the Fill-It system. The cabinet materials are compatible with decontamination using hydrogen peroxide, thus providing a safer alternative to formaldehyde fumigation. These combined features ensure the cabinet provides personal, sample and environmental protection when using Fill-It, critical factors in maintaining secure, sterile conditions.

Stephen Guy, Fill-It Product Manager at TAP explained: "Our Fill-It is a proven technology for cell banking and cell line development used by the world’s leading cell providers, and we are now able to expand its use with the introduction of our class II biological safety cabinet.”

Guy continued: “The new biosafety cabinet offers an efficient, cost-effective use of laboratory space because it provides a portable sterile environment for Fill-It and is ideal for contract applications where different cell lines often have to be developed in separate laboratories.”
