Biosafety Cabinet Class III
The latest outbreak of the Ebola virus in western Africa represents a risk and a threat of unimaginable proportions for the whole world!
We would like to take this opportunity to introduce Cruma Virus 3 model, a Class III microbiological safety cabinet developed by Euroclone® in Italy.
Despite the years of research carried out on the Ebola virus, it has still not been possible to deliver vaccines or any other type of treatment to the population at risk or to the teams providing medical care. Hence, there is currently no type of prophylaxis or treatment for an infection caused by the Ebola virus. For this reason the World Health Organization (WHO) has classified Ebola as a risk-group 4 pathogenic virus. According to the WHO, a risk-group 4 pathogen must be handled at containment level 4, using protective clothing and working with a Class III Microbiological Safety cabinet.
Yes, they all fit.
- Controls comfortably located at eye level
- Fan speed and aeraulic controlled by Microprocessor
- Three operating modes: normal, stand-by, calibration
- High speed rinse at start up
- Self calibration and internal Watch-dog cycle before “SAFE” condition is reached
- Visual display of “SAFE” conditions and “UNSAFE” conditions (LED and bar graph)
- Elapsed time meter
- Microprocessor control with following specifications:
– Multilevel alarms, with redundancy functions.
– Permanent display of working conditions.
– High air flow stability both in case of transitional
disturbances or to progressive filter clogging
– Power failure alarm
- Volt-free contact for remote monitoring of exhaust fan.
- Automatic reset of initial conditions in case of power failure
- C-shaped support stand for easy one man installation procedure
- Anti blow back valve (optional) for ducted configuration
- Magnehelic Gauge for internal chamber pressure constant monitoring
- One (1) Electrical Socket as standard option
- UV-Light installed on top (standard option)
- Manipulations of microorganisms, bacteria, fungi, viruses and parasites from risk groups 1, 2 and 3.
- Isolation and culture of samples
- Methods of quantification
- Microscopy techniques and sample preparation Identification and typing of microorganisms
- Genetic manipulation
