Built to Order Customized Workflow
Standard – Just like our CellGard and LabGard line of Biosafety Cabinet, LabGard 602 provides ISO Class 5 Air conditions for product sterility, technician allergen protection through a dynamic air barrier and HEPA filtration.

Dirty Cage Collection – A pass through allows technicians to place dirty cages from cage changing procedures through a door in the side wall into a biohazard bag.

Refuse Disposal – Dispose of animal bedding under Class II containment conditions with a built in waste disposal chute in the work surface.

Sterile Cage Delivery – A spring balanced platform is built into the work surface to hold up to 50 sterile cages under Class II containment conditions.

Combinations – Combine the Dirty Cage Collection option with either Refuse Disposal or Sterile Cage Delivery Systems to maximize your workflow under sterile conditions.

Pre-Filter System
An easy accessible and cleanable pre-filter under the work surface captures bedding, hair and dander extending the life of your HEPA filters.

Essentials Control System
Simple switches control the blower, lights, outlets while a mini-helic gauge measures plenum performance.

Energy Saver Motor
An ultra high efficiency motor saves on your energy bills while increasing filter life lowering your total cost of ownership.

Experience Ergonomics
Ergonomic design encourages proper posture reducing fatigue.

TruLaminar Airflow
Unidirectional airflow moving along parallel flow lines at a constant velocity of 60 fpm (0.30 m/s) minimizes air turbulence within the work zone lessening the chance for cross contamination.

Dynamic Air Barrier
Strong inflow air velocity of 105 fpm (0.53 m/s) over an aerodynamic airfoil creates maximum personnel protection.

HEPEX™ Zero Leak Airflow System
The HEPEX™ plenum inflates to provide quiet uniform air without transferring vibration. Positive pressure chambers and ducts are surrounded by negative pressure eliminating potential leaks. HEPEX™ fabrics are incredibly durable. They are flameproof, provide a barrier against water, gases, fluid, and dust as well as resist to chemicals, oils, and greases. It even holds antibacterial properties and is impregnable meaning harmful materials become trapped in the filters.

Vibration and sound control.
