Class 3/1 Hybrid Safety Cabinet

Full barrier, high hazard protection

Class 3/1 Hybrid Safety Cabinet

Class 3 microbiological safety cabinets from CAS provide full barrier high hazard protection to the requirements of EN 12469:2000.

Product details

Class 3/1 hybrid microbiological safety cabinets provide total barrier protection for the operator and are suitable for the highest risk laboratory work up to Hazard Group 4 (ACDP guidelines).

Product features

  • Totally enclosed main working area
  • User separated from the work by a physical barrier
  • HEPA filtered inlet air continuously supplied to the main work area
  • HEPA filtered exhaust air treated to prevent environmental contamination
  • Creates total containment protection for both laboratory users and materials

Inflow air is HEPA filtered before entering the Class 3 microbiological safety cabinet via a side mounted inlet filter chamber. Exhaust air is HEPA filtered before leaving the safety cabinet via a single or double HEPA filter, dependant on the customer's specific technical requirements.

Manipulations within the safety cabinet are carried out via gloves mechanically attached to the cabinet, providing a total seal against any particulate contamination released within the main working area.


"It gives me great pleasure to announce we now have three fully operational Class IIs in the new 12G Lab Area!  I would like to say a huge thank you to CAS for the continued support and brilliant response throughout."
