Class 2 Microbiological Safety Cabinets

Class 2 Microbiological Safety Cabinets

Now significantly upgraded to be simpler, safer, quieter and more efficient

Product details

The 6th generation BioMAT 2 brings together decades of experience in containment design to provide a range of Class 2 Microbiological Safety Cabinets, simple and safe to use and maintain, quiet and energy efficient in operation.


BioMAT 2 Microbiological Safety Cabinets provide both operator and product protection for the routine handling of biological agents up to Hazard Group 3 (ACDP Publication - Categorisation of Pathogens according to Hazard and Categories of Containment 1990).

Simple to use

Intuitive controls with crystal clear iconography for ease of operation. 10cm x 6cm TFT touch screen providing real time indication of cabinet operation with dynamic animated airflow diagram.
Engineers menu allows rapid and simple adjustment of cabinet fan speed and UV light time function. Simple four digit password protection offers users simple and quick security in maintaining cabinet operations.

Efficient operation

Energy efficient EC fan technology coupled with low loss filters, LED lighting and energy efficient controls provide significantly reduced power consumption.
Typical running consumption: 140W based on a Class 2 cabinet operational performance of 0.6 m/sec inflow and 0.35m/sec downflow.
Set back mode detects unattended cabinet operation and automatically closes visor to 50mm, extinguishes lights and reduces fan speed to maximise energy efficiency (BioMAT 2-S2).

Safe operation

Full width LED light function gives operator unparalleled clear unambiguous indication of any airflow problem. Animated airflow diagram provides the operator with instant clear indication of any abnormal cabinet status.

Quiet operation

All models are equipped with EC fans, additional attenuation, low pressure HEPA filters and noise reduction technology ensures the lowest possible noise levels. Typical noise level now 49dBA (1200mm models).

BioMAT 2-S2

The BioMAT 2–S2 offers an aerosol tight motorised sliding sash front visor, operated using simple up/down arrows on the main control panel. The sliding sash is normally set at 200mm for standard cabinet operation but can be raised to allow passage of large items into the main cabinet working area or lowered to close and seal the cabinet as required. The S2 visor also incorporates an anti trap function which automatically raises the glass visor in the event that an obstruction is detected and a set back mode which lowers the visor to 50mm and switches off lights when the cabinet is left unattended to maximise energy efficiency.
