A new range of laminar flow cabinets offering up to 35% less power consumption than the typical marketplace equivalent will be exhibited by Telstar at Analytica (Munich, 10–13 May).
Providing protection in an ISO 4 sterile environment, the Aeolus cabinets integrate energy saving EC fans and an automatic airflow velocity control system, which ensures an optimised protection level and offers a low sound level, in addition to 20% more sterile working area while maintaining a compact external footprint.
The laminar flow system enables work to be carried out under sterile conditions with low particulate count by virtue of a continuous filtered air sweep in the work area, which assures full product protection.
The range of Telstar Aeolus cabinets includes an air anemometer speed monitoring system which confirms effectiveness to the operator at all times and avoids deviations from the average laminar flow range.
In addition to a visible and accessible display, the equipment also includes a system of optical and acoustic alarms that warn of any incident and the stainless steel work surface, designed as an integral part, can easily be dismantled. Using an innovative lighting structure, appropriate illumination is provided to the working area, which minimises visual fatigue and helps eliminate glare and reflections. The cabinet sides, designed in tempered glass, provide full visibility and enhance the inner lighting.
The new cabinets allow access to all components from the front, which is made of sliding glass in the vertical model, rendering technical maintenance tasks easier.
Telstar says the Aeolus cabinets are particularly suitable for handling non-pathogenic samples in applications related to hospital protocols and clinical pharmacy, in vitro fertilisation, food quality control and microbiology, in vitro cultivation of plant and animal cells, microbiology and cleanrooms for pharmaceutical, veterinary and food industries, as well as hospitals, universities and research centres.
