The Power of Innovation in Biological / Cytotoxic Safety Cabinet


Protection Shield

The multiple award-winning “Shield Design” testifies high quality design, which combines by way of example innovation with form and function.


Touch Display

Intuitive operation and user-friendly menu navigation.


Innovative LED light technology

Apart from the LED lighting of the working space, laterally arranged LED light bands and the illuminated window edge in the view of the user visualise the operating state or alarms and guarantee the highest security.



Detection system for the movements of persons and resulting air perturbation near the work opening creates clear warnings and raises awareness of the laboratory personnel.



Particularly quiet, bright operating conditions, individually adjustable work surface height and optimum legroom even for 3-filter cabinets due to the particularly compact design of the first main filter.



Innovative technology & Auto On-Off function reduces the operating costs by up to 84%.

Fluid mechanics

Air distribution, cross-sections and filters have
been optimised resulting in the lowest possible flow resistance in order to achieve a more efficient air-flow. This reduces the load on the fans which saves
valuable energy.

Top quality components

Premium quality components like EC-fans, LED lighting technology and a LED touch display reduce the active energy consumption enormously

New HEPA cartridge filters

Improved operating characteristics significantly reduce energy consumption and sound level thanks to new suction nozzle and air distribution. Resulting longer service life of filters saves additional costs

Best Design of Biological / Cytotoxic Safety Cabinet

airflow safety cabinet

Filters are the most safety relevant components in safety cabinets. They make up the most important barrier for people, the environment and the product.

As part of a research project we were able to fluid mechanically optimize the HEPA-cartridge filters used in the 3-filter systems. Thanks to a newly designed intake port and air ducts the operating properties have been improved. Noise level and energy consumption have been reduced. The filter life has been optimised.

Proven properties have remained the same :

  • Small size and compact design
  • Maximum legroom in 3-filter-systems
  • 50% reduced changing and test expenditure compared to traditional filter systems
  • Possibility of a low contamination filter change in accordance to DIN 12980:2016
  • Fit into many standard waste disposal containers or autoclaves

The touch display is the central interface and control unit for the user. The touch display of the new generation is intuitive in its operation with a self-explanatory menu. Premium quality pictograms and a puristic design speak a clear language.

The superior TFT-display with LED background lighting is arranged in a central position and within easy reach. The display can be easily read from a sitting as well as a standing position.

All safety-related parameters such as airflow velocities and front screen position are displayed as large graphical images. Errors are shown clearly, and potential corrective actions are suggested.

The distinguishing feature of the touch display of the new generation of safety cabinets is the intuitive operation and extremely user-friendly menu navigation- it’s easy!

Optional Waste Transfer Aerosol-Tight


Dangerous chemical and biological waste from safety cabinets deserve special attention. The ability to transfer waste without leaving the safe workspace of the safety cabinet is the key to minimising cross-contamination.

The, for the Claire specially adapted, waste disposal unit BERNER SealSafe® Sensor+ has been designed for receiving and air-tight sealing of waste.

Automatic transport of foil tube sealing after sealing process. Electrically operated sliding pane closes the waste chute safely.

Optional & Accesories

Various interfaces and additional power sockets

Interfaces allow to connect different kinds of devices within the safety cabinet. Therefore, type and quantity of the interfaces are different according to the need. Find some of the interfaces of our assortment here.

Interfaces :

  • RS 232 -> Important data (for example, from a balance, keyboard, etc.) can be send with the integrated RS-232 Data Link from the working space to the data processing system.
  • USB/USB 3.0 -> Integrated universal interface for connecting peripheral devices such as keyboard, printer, balance, etc. outside of the working space and laterally disposed of the safety cabinet with your data processing system. Mechanically stable and simple plug-in connection with fast data transfer rate. Gross data transfer rate USB 3.0: 500 mb/s
  • CAT 5 -> Integrated interface for signal transmission with high data transfer rates. It enables the exchange of data between a local area network (LAN) connected devices (computers, printers, etc.).
  • PS/2 -> Serial interface for input devices such as Keyboard and mouse.
  • 8 P -> Push/Pull Interface realised from working space to the roof (Roxtec). 8P push-pull -> circular connector connections. For Claire safety cabinets, for example, for connecting compounders or other
  • Ethernet -> Integrated dual interface for signal transmission with high data transfer rates. It enables the exchange of data between connected devices (computers, printers, etc.)in a local area network (LAN).

Powerful systems for UV-C disinfection

The built-in UV C sterilisation system disinfects with a large disinfection effectiveness the workspace thanks to its high performance and shadowfree irradiation. A high irradiance at a wavelength of 254 nm ensures a rapid killing of microorganisms (for example, about 220μW / cm² according to the manufacturer of UV lamps for models with a width of 190 cm).

From this theoretical LD90 values (kill rate: 90%) yield of vegetative bacterial cells and yeast of <2 minutes, bacterial spores (Bacillus subtilis) <5 minutes DNA and RNA viruses gen gen <3 minutes, mushrooms <10 minutes. Few specific exemptions of certain viruses and fungal spores require higher exposure times, so as Aspergillus Niger (spores) about 25 minutes and specific HIV Virus (H9) 40 min.

The appropriate exposure time can be set via the timer on the centrally located touch screen.

Low vibration weighing worktops

Achieved as a mass-spring system the work plate for micro balances provides a very stable, low-vibration area integrated into the safety cabinet. For undisturbed exact weighing or for other vibration sensitive analytical instruments.

The weighing top has a size of 313 x 600 mm and is made from 1,5 mm thick stainless steel.

The vibration (RMS) could be significantly reduced with the Low-Vibration-System below 5µm (benchmark in relevant technical standards).

The low-vibration area is indicated by a balance symbol.


Isokinetic sampling probe for particle monitoring

Continuous particle monitoring

Determination of particle purity class in the working space of a safety cabinet – or horizontal cabinet or an isolator

  • Monitoring the particle purity class A in the working space
  • Integration of a fixed or mobile isokinetic sampling probe

Exhaust air connection Exhaust Duct Flex for connection and feedback-free operation of air exhaust systems

The exhaust air connection FlexDuct ensures feedback-free coupling of safety cabinets to an exhaust air system acc. DIN 12980 and DIN EN 12469.

  • Very low total exhaust air volume flow reduces the operating costs significantly by upto 50%
  • Especially for ceiling heights > 2,8 m
  • Ideal for use with height adjustable base frames
  • Free of negative feedback, therefore always maximum personal protection
  • Flexible placement of the safety cabinet according to the lab conditions
  • Safety dampers enable the visual control of safe operating conditions
  • Via safety flaps adjustment of optimum exhaust air volume flow without measurements is possible
  • Fast deinstallation for exhaust air filter check

Important requirements:

  • The distance of the safety cabinet to the wall needs to be at least 7 cm for the safety flaps to open correctly in case of ventilation system failure.
  • The air ventilation system needs to be designed for a total exhaust air volume flow of : 600 +/ – 50 m³/h.
  • A circular connection to the ventilation system with a diameter of 250 mm above the safety cabinet in the ceiling or wall should be in a distance of not more than 4 m.
  • The air ventilation system must monitor the set value of the volume flow. Unsafe conditions have to be indicated by visual and acoustic warning signals.
