GERMFREE BIOPHARM (BBF-2SS-RX)
Benchtop BioFlow Biological Chamber Hood Laboratory Workstation
~Scroll Down for Additional Pictures~
This cu/ft stainless steel benchtop biological workstation is in excellent cosmetic and tested working conditon. It is ready to use and I guarantee it will not be DOA. There are HEPAfilters installed.
Comes with the Germfree Bioflow Chamber, installed filters, operating manual and working chamber lamp. This is a top of the line minimal turbulence, unidirectional, vertical down flow cabinet for handling particles and aerosols down to the sub micron size. Negative flow with air curtainprovides containment without having to work through gloves. There is a Magnehelic gauge on the front to monitor flow pressures. The light and motor have separate switches. There is a removablework tray in the bottom of the chamber and a hanging bar inside the top of the chamber. The entire front of the machine hinges up for additional access. Filters are changed by removing the top panel.
This device weighs 220 lbs and will require freight shipping. To give you some idea it will cost approximately $ for west coast shipping and approximately $250.00 for east coast shipping.

Today the BENCHTOP BIOFLOW CHAMBER is primarily used for the safe handling of chemotherapy agents and other toxic or carcinogenic pharmaceutical agents in Pharmacies and Oncology clinics. The liquid aerosols and fine powders created in these environments behave much the same the biological pathogens originally manipulated in this type of equipment. Therefore working in the BENCHTOP BIOFLOW CHAMBER provides state of the art protection from your particular operation.
The BENCHTOP BIOFLOW CHAMBER is a minimal turbulence, unidirectional, vertical down flow re-circulating laminar flow cabinet, which provides a safe work area for handling particles and aerosols down to the submicron size range. This chamber eliminates cross-contamination and accidental release of pathogenic microorganisms or carcinogenic aerosols to the outside atmosphere. The unit can be used wherever sterile air is required. Other applications include handling materials such as pollen, powders, allergens, dust, pathogen-free animals and plantsactually in any situation where both clean air and containment are required. All the air that bathes the work area and all the air that is exhausted is passed through High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filters that are parallel to each other and to the work surface. These filters remove particulates (organisms, aerosols, etc.) 0.3 micron in size with 99.99% efficiency, and they even more efficient for both larger and smaller particulates. The laminar flow principle consists of moving individual streams of unidirectional ultra clean air along parallel lines with minimal turbulence. Perhaps the most valuable parameter of the BENCHTOP BIOFLOW CHAMBER is containment without the necessity of working through gloves. This is accomplished by discharging approximately 30% of the total filtered air each cycle through the exhaust HEPA filter in the top of the unit.
An equal amount of make-up air is pulled into the chamber through the bottom of the window under negative pressure from the blower and positive pressure from the air curtain. The viewing panel has a unique, recessed, contoured shape, which creates an aerodynamic flow pattern. It is this combination that produces the protective barrier for the operator by containing hazardous materials within the chamber.
The BENCHTOP BIOFLOW CHAMBER exceeds the requirements for a class 100 chamber described in Federal Standard No. 209. This standard outlines air cleanliness classes and certain other environmental air conditions required for achieving and maintaining the levels of environmental cleanliness. Class 100, according to Federal Standards, is the class where particles 0.5 micron or larger must not exceed a total count of 100 particles per cubic foot. Biomedical engineering and technology have introduced safeguards into the design of laboratory equipment, but these safeguards do not prevent human error. Danger to personnel from carelessness or improperly used equipment cannot be overemphasized. There is no substitute for safe, proper technique.
