1500 B2

The Thermo Scientific 1500 Series B2 BSC meets NSF/ANSI 49 for a Class II, Type B2 biosafety cabinet. These energy efficient cabinets require direct connection to external exhaust and provide personal and product protection from biological hazards and contamination as well as protection from volatile toxic chemicals used in the cabinet.

These cabinets are differentiated by:
  • SmartFlow compensation to maintain downflow allowing effective use of downflow prefilter for extended HEPA filter life.
  • Counter balanced window for easy operation.
  • 8 inch (20cm) front opening with Type 304 stainless steel interior.

Key features to help you achieve your next discovery

Based on over 40 years of engineering and design breakthroughs, our expertise is represented in key features that span our portfolio. Together these enhancements provide valuable contamination control technologies, and advanced design for highly critical applications, plus simplicity which allows you to spend more time pursuing your goals.

Thermo Scientific Class II, Type A2 BSCs use separate downflow and exhaust fans. SmartFlow compensation maintains inflow and the overall balance of inflow and downflow through real-time adjustment of the exhaust fan for constant flow and comparable adjustment to downflow. Thermo Scientific 2030i has SmartFlow Plus with fully implemented independent compensation to maintain constant inflow and constant downflow. 

All Thermo Scientific BSCs provide visual and audible alarms to warn of improper window position and unacceptable variation in airflow. Thermo Scientific 2030i has a unique interface that graphically depicts the alarm condition, text that advises of the specific concern and selectable audible tone to allow easy differentiation between window position and airflow problems.

Thermo Scientific BSCs allow a choice of internal surfaces including more economical partially coated interiors, type 304 stainless steel or type 316 stainless steel for greater chemical resistance. Our BSCs offer either double sided walls with negatively pressurized interstitial space for enhanced structure containment or transparent side panels for improved ergonomics. Work surfaces within the cabinet can be flat for easy cleaning or indented for containment of larger spills onto the work surface.

Thermo Scientific Class II, Type A2 BSCs use separate downflow and exhaust fans with DC electric motors. This combination of energy efficient DC motors with the fan based balance greatly reduces energy consumption compared to to traditional AC motor units with mechanical balancing dampers. 

Thermo Scientific BSCs allow a choice of traditional fluorescent lights for cabinet illumination or more energy efficient and sustainable LED lighting.
