ESCO Promotes Safer Decontamination for Biosafety Cabinets

Esco Micro finalized an exclusive marketing agreement to promote BIOQUELL's patented hydrogen peroxide vapour (HPV) biodecontamination technology.

The HPV biodecontamination technology is a safer alternative to the carcinogenic formaldehyde decontamination method traditionally employed for biosafety cabinets.

HPV is non-carcinogenic and the decontamination process is residue-free, which guarantees complete safety for laboratory personnel. The process of hydrogen peroxide vapour generation is routinely used for research and manufacturing facilities including fermentation/ purification suites.

Along with the marketing of this new technology, Esco debuted its HPV-compliant and decontaminatable biosafety cabinet, the Infinity® Class II Type A2, at the ACHEMA 2006 tradeshow in Frankfurt, Germany.

Based on Esco's internationally-certified Labculture® Class II Type A2 biosafety cabinet, this new model offers numerous functions and unique features in addition to the standard Esco features such as the superior ULPA filters, antimicrobial Isocide™ coating, ergonomic sloped front and Accuflow™ microprocessor-based motor-speed controller.

Inherent double-fan system guarantees safety even in the event of failure of 1 fan. The Infinity® biosafety cabinet is pending GS certification to EN12469.
