Select a Biological Safety Cabinet below or contact NuAire to discuss your research and protection needs.
Class IChoose NuAire class I biological safety cabinets where only personal protection is required.
Class II Type A2NuAire Class II, Type A2 Biological Safety Cabinets provide personnel, product, and environmental protection through 30% exhausted / 70% recirculated airflow to minimize cross-contamination of low to moderate risk biologicals in the absence of volatile toxic chemicals.
Class II Type B1NuAire Class II, Type B1 Biological Safety Cabinets provide personnel, product, and environmental protection by exhausting 70% of airflow. B1 Cabinets may be used for work treated with minute quantities of volatile toxic chemicals and trace amounts of radionuclides required as an adjunct to microbiological studies if work is done in the direct exhausted portion of the cabinet, or if the chemicals or radionuclides will not interfere with the work when recirculated in the downflow air.
Class II Type B2NuAire Class II, Type B2 Total Exhaust Biological Safety Cabinets provide personnel, product, and environmental protection featuring downflow air drawn from within the laboratory or outside air. No downflow air is drawn from the cabinet exhaust air. All downflow and inflow air is exhausted through a HEPA filter without recirculation within the cabinet. The B2 Cabinet may be used for work with volatile toxic chemicals and radionuclides as required as adjuncts to microbiological studies.
Class IIINuAire class III biosafety cabinet glove boxes provide a physical barrier between biological agents and personnel.

NuAire Compounding Aseptic and Containment Isolators are designed to ensure sterility throughout low and high-risk compounding processes. NuAire ergonomic pharmacy isolators help reduce compounding error and personnel fatigue, improving compounding accuracy.
Compounding Aseptic (CAI)Compounding Aseptic Isolators create a positive pressure clean air [ISO Class 5] controlled environment specifically for aseptic compounding of non-hazardous drugs. The HEPA filtered work area maintains a positive pressure relative to the interchange compartment, which operates at a positive air pressure relative to the surrounding room. These two levels of protection minimize the possibility of contamination migrating into the work zone.
Compounding Aseptic Containment Isolators (CACI)Compounding Aseptic Containment Isolators create a negative pressure clean air [ISO Class 5] controlled environment for the aseptic compounding of hazardous drugs. The HEPA filtered interchange compartment maintains a negative pressure relative to the work area, which operates at a negative air pressure relative to the surrounding room. These levels of protection minimize the possibility of chemotherapy agents or other hazardous materials migrating from the work area into the surrounding room as well as minimizing the possibility of contamination migrating into the work zone.
NuAire Polypropylene products are constructed from primarily stress relieved, fully seam-welded, and reinforced white polypropylene for high corrosive applications. Polypropylene holds high temperature and tensile strength, possesses excellent chemical resistance to organic solvents and degreasing agents as well as electrolytic attack. The properties of polypropylene are enhanced with anti-oxidizing agents and UV stabilizers to increase strength and improve thermal characteristics. Polypropylene is lightweight, stain resistant, and has a low moisture absorption rate. All this makes NuAire polypropylene products an excellent choice for long-lasting, highly corrosive-resistant, metal-free applications.
Polypropylene Fume HoodsNuAire Polypropylene Fume Hoods are virtually metal free constructed of stress-relieved, fully seam-welded reinforced white polypropylene providing protection against vapors when working with corrosive agents.
