Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., have introduced the new Thermo Scientific MSC-Advantage® Class II biological safety cabinet range. The MSC-Advantage safety cabinet platform offers the highest levels of safety and reliability with improved energy efficiency, simpler operation and less maintenance than traditional cabinets. These features make both the 1.2m and 1.8m wide models a good choice for all laboratories that require stringent safety performance with reduced power consumption.
With advanced internal airflow and motor technology, Thermo Scientific MSC-Advantage cabinets offer optimal energy efficiency, operation and serviceability. At full speed the motors consume 60% less energy than standard cabinets. To further conserve energy, the intelligent speed control automatically reduces blower speed to 30% when the window is closed. This unique technology extends HEPA filter life while ensuring a sterile working environment and saves energy to minimize operating costs. Noise output has also been reduced to <55 dB (1.2 m model), increasing user comfort. In addition, a simple to operate microprocessor control clearly displays essential operational, safety and service data.
The front windows of the Thermo Scientific MSC-Advantage cabinet range drop within their frames to enable full access to the upper inside window surfaces. Furthermore, all removable components, including the HEPA filters, can be changed from the front, minimizing filter replacement time. In addition, smooth components are used throughout the cabinet, virtually eliminating the risk of injury during routine cleaning, servicing, and maintenance procedures. The optional UV light is programmable from 1 minute to 24 hrs, reducing the need for bulb replacement, and the selection of fixed and adjustable stands provides the correct working height for all situations.
