Micro-Isolator™ cages should be opened and serviced within a Stay-Clean™ Duplex Workbench, providing a Class 100 laminar flow work area.
The Stay-Clean™ Duplex Workbench provides HEPA filtered (99.99% efficient to 0.3 micron particles) laminar flow air from the top of the workbench, pulling airborne particulate from the cages and into the air intake around the perimeter of the work surface. The air intake capture reduces personnel exposure to particulate escaping from the cages, helps protect animals from personnel and cross contamination between cages. The Stay-Clean™ Duplex Workbench provides a work surface area of 43-7/8” wide x 24-5/8” deep.
This mobile unit includes digital controls that constantly monitor and adjust fan speed as the filter loads, maintaining proper air flow. Since the air flow is adjusted automatically, no special equipment is required to maintain precise airflow performance throughout the life of the HEPA filter. A pre-filter alarm will help assure your pre-filters are maintained regularly, prolonging the life of the HEPA filter.
The unit is compact, may be accessed from either side, and has an adjustable work surface height for ergonomic flexibility. With a 9 inch work surface height adjustment, now you can better accommodate varying ergonomic needs while improving your productivity at the touch of a button.
