Feb 14 2006

Esco Labculture® Class II Type B2 Biosafety cabinet (LB2-4B2
model) has been tested as fully compliant to the requirements of the US
Standard NSF49 for Class II (laminar flow) biosafety cabinetry. Total of 20
stringent performance tests were conducted by NSF International in USA,
which included a full set of microbiological performance tests with
bacterial spore samples, airflow tests, rigorous construction and design
evaluation tests and others described in NSF/ANSI 49-2004 standard. The
listing on the NSF website is pending.

The LB2 models are pending certification to the UL 61010A-1 (Underwriters
Laboratories, Inc) safety requirements for "Electrical Equipment for
Laboratory Use", for USA (UL) and for Canada (UL-C). UL certification is a
pre-requisite for NSF49 certification.

Launched in the first quarter of 2005, Esco's Labculture® Class II T ype B2
biosafety cabinet features many unique, state-of-the-art developments which
include superior ULPA filters with >99.999% efficiency, a
microprocessor-based control system, BioCote® anti-microbial powder-coated
body and laminated shatter-proof safety glass. Incorporating a
non-circulating total exhaust design, the cabinet provides ISO Class 3
cleanliness within workzone to protect the operator, product and
environment from biohazardous aerosols.
