Recently inaugurated research facility is one of five global hubs in the medtech sector

Spanish company Telstar has supplied a total of 63 cabinets designed with specific bioprocessing applications in the medical and clinical research field in mind to the new Biomedical Science Research Facility at the National University of Ireland in Galway (NUI Galway).

The activities of NUI Galway’s Biomedical Science Research Facility are specifically directed towards cancer research, regenerative medicine and glycosciences. The suite of cabinets provided by Telstar represent a new generation of innovative biological safety cabinets designed to work in research environments such as tissue culture suites, radiochemistry, flow cytometry, screening core, sample preparation and biomimic areas.

The cabinets are more compact and optimise the usable work area in laboratories with limited space. The cabinet design offers a body 20% smaller than the market average while maintaining standard work space.

Intended for the laminar flow manipulation of microorganisms with biological risk levels 2 and 3, the new range of Telstar safety cabinets offers an ergonomic design that adapts easily to small spaces, especially in laboratories with low ceilings and where several pieces of equipment need to be used in the same area.

Of the total of cabinets designed by Telstar, 57 of them correspond to Telstar Bio II Advance range, the class II cabinet designed in accordance EN12469 standard, and six units of EF B range of class II B2 cabinets in accordance with NSF49 standard.

The NUI Galway Biomedical Science Research Facility, formally inaugurated in February 2014, forms part of NUI Galway, which is considered one of five global hubs in the medtech sector and the first facility in Ireland to manufacture human stem cells. NUI Galway has a team of 300 scientists and researchers in biomedical science.
