Microbiological safety cabinet CYTOS by LAMSYSTEMS was developed with consideration of working peculiarities with cytotoxic substances and specimens for chemotherapy. Unlike standard biosafety cabinets class II type A2, CYTOS is equipped with additional safety system. It includes intermediate filters for purification of the air exhausted from the work chamber. They are installed right under the tabletop. The reason behind it is that cytotoxic agents can not be deactivated with decontamination; therefore they impose great toxic threat to the operator and service personnel.
To increase protective efficiency of the cytotoxic safety cabinet LAMSYSTEMS engineers upgraded the air exhaust purification system. Intermediate cartridge filters that were used before are now substituted with cylindrical filters. In addition, the number of filters became four instead of previously used two. Cylindrical filter are more favorable due to their higher adaption to utilization. Filter substitution is performed inside the work chamber of the switched on cabinet by single person.
In addition, the high quality filtering material helped in decreasing the noise level of the working cabinet and therefore raising its customer appeal.
Biosafety cabinet CYTOS by LAMSYSTEMS is the microbiological safety cabinet class II type A2 according the standards classification EN 12469:200 and NSF/ANSI 49. The name of the cabinet according to DIN 12980 is the safety cabinet for cytotoxic substances. Cabinet model name is “CYTOS”.
