The BioWizard 3 is a Class III safety cabinet which protects the operator and the environment from hazards in handling infected and other dangerous biological material. The cabinet separates the operator from the potentially infected samples handled in the working space. Work is performed with mechanically attached gloves. Escape of any airborne particles is prevented by an exhaust system.
The cabinet interior is constructed of stainless steel. Other parts stove enamelled steel.
The front window can be openable for ease of access to the working area when it is safe to do so.
All internal finishes are solvent, disinfectant and abrasion resistant.
The main filters are leak-tested, high efficiency H14 HEPA-filters which meet the requirements of EN 12469. The inlet filter is to the same specification as the exhaust filter. These filters generate the correct airflow, ensuring a minimum working pressure of 200 Pa.
Materials required for normal work are placed inside the cabinet via a material pass-through made of stainless steel. A rotating tray in the bottom of the pass-through makes this easy.
The gloves have a beaded cuff conforming to the diameter and shape of the glove ports. Different glove materials available, neoprene being as standard. Gloves can easily be replaced from outside the cabinet, the old gloves being pushed inside and the new ones fitted while the fan is still running.
The Biowizard BW-3 cabinet fulfils the requirements of standard EN 12469.
