Key Features

Cleanroom-ISO-GMP-stamp

Cleanroom certified

Responding to the rising demand for proven cleanroom compatibility, we have met the need with the first particle control system designed for a CO2 incubator. This innovative technology controls and captures particulates released from all sides of the incubator into the cleanroom environment. Air throughout the casing is directed through a HEPA filter in the rear to assure no disruption to the environment. Third party validated and Certified for ISO Class 5 and GMP Grade A/B environments.
