Vertical and Horizontal Laminar Flow Hoods

What are Vertical and Horizontal Laminar Flow Hoods?

Laminar flow hoods or clean benches offer filtered airflow across the work area, protecting the sample from contamination. Laminar Flow hoods are ideal for a range of applications that demand clean air and a sterile environment, such as numerous medical and research laboratories, sterile equipment assembly, and electronic device assembly.

The majority of laminar flow hoods come with either horizontal or vertical airflow. Clean filtered air travels downward from the filter surface on top to the work surface in vertical flow hoods. Clean air travels from a filter behind the work surface toward the operator in horizontal laminar flow cabinets. The kind of procedure, operator safety, and clearance requirements all influence airflow direction.

Applications

Personnel protection is not provided by laminar flow hoods or clean benches, as it is by biosafety cabinets. In the presence of harmful substances, they are ineffective. A biological safety cabinet should be utilized if your application concerns biohazards.

Multi-zone Assisted Reproductive Treatment Workstations are primarily used for Animal In Vitro Fertilization and Sample Handling and are generally suited for non-hazardous applications requiring a clean work environment. Positive-pressure, ISO 5 air is provided throughout the chamber and sash opening, keeping airborne particulates away from sensitive applications.

Multi-Zone heating system

Excellent uniformity is achieved thanks to ten distinct zones with their own heating elements and sensors. The heating system will prioritize power distribution automatically to provide accurate temperature regulation and quick recovery. The temperature regulation of MIRI® chambers is always on in models with MIRI® chambers, independent of mode.

  • Multiple independent heating zones, each with its own heating elements and sensors, with no crossover heating across zones.
  • Heated glass stage has a dedicated and uninterrupted power supply to further ensure temperature control and recovery.

Choice of 4 temperature modes

You can turn on all zones, turn off the right zones, turn off the right and middle zones or all zones are turned off.

Microscope integration provision

  • Provision to integrate the most popular stereoscopic and inverted microscopes.
  • The work chamber's integrated stereoscope allows users to keep culture dishes at a constant temperature while observing and manipulating them. Accidents will be less likely with fewer movements.

Humidification system

Humidification system

The Multi-Zone ART Workstation allows for digital control of premixed gas, allowing for comprehensive sample environmental control. The table top has a gas output port, and the plastic cover will encapsulate the humidified gas, creating a mini incubator.

  • Built-in humidification system with digital control of pre-mixed gas.
  • Gas outlet port located on the table surface; used with the provided plastic cover it helps keep samples under controlled conditions

Energy Efficiency Chart

ECM blowers are used in Esco Assisted Reproductive Technology Workstations, enabling minimal cabinet power consumption without sacrificing cabinet performance. It also has a standby mode that helps to save energy while the cabinet is not in use.

Touchscreen monitor

Fully functional Windows PC with a touch screen provides real-time information on all work area parameters e.g. zone temperature performance, gas pressure, and flow rate. Here are the touchscreen monitor’s full and detailed specs:

  • Displays the temperature of the heated surface, as well as the gas flow and pressure.
  • Reports of these parameters can be generated.
  • Observe and record culture behavior in real-time via microscope camera function.
  • Enable teleconference calls with colleagues in other sites for real-time collaborative work.
  • Note: Webcam is not supplied.

Isocide logo

Isocide Powder Coat

It's a silver-ion impregnated powder coat that improves safety by inhibiting microbiological development.

Non-radiating Stainless Steel Tabletop

  • Stainless steel is the primary material utilized in the tabletop surface. While aluminum is employed to cover the tabletop's bottom.
  • To improve temperature control and recovery in this zone, the heated glass stage has a dedicated and uninterrupted power supply.

Superior Air Cleanliness

Esco cabinets deliver ISO Class 3 air cleanliness within the work zone, which is much cleaner than the competition's Class 4 designation.

Less Noise, Less Vibration

Less Noise, Less Vibration

The Esco Multi-Zone ART Workstation offers cutting-edge design and features that result in extremely low noise and vibration levels, making it ideal for sensitive microscopic work. It has a smaller, high-efficiency ECM blower that creates less noise and vibrations, as well as a passive damper that runs the length of the link, dampening the cabinet frame with table plate vibrations.

Cable Pass-Through Channels

Electrical wires from other equipment or accessories, such as a camera, can run through the back wall of the Esco Multi-Zone ART workstation. This results in a cleaner, more organized atmosphere, which should benefit your IVF process.
Cable Pass-Through Channels

Accessories

  • Option to have integrated MIRI® chambers for embryo safety and to improve workflow.
  • Optional UV lamp for work zone decontamination used with an optional polycarbonate front cover for UV shielding.
MIRI Chambers

MIRI Chambers

  • The Esco Multi-Zone ART Workstation has been improved with the addition of integrated MIRI® chambers, which help to keep your embryos safe while within the workstation.
  • The MIRI® incubator is well-known for its superior qualities, such as a consistent culture environment and quick parameter recovery.
  • The integrated MIRI® chambers, which are known for their consistent and exact temperature output, keep your specimens safer than before.

Conclusion

Infertility is a serious social, psychological, and financial condition that affects both individuals and couples. It is a worldwide issue that transcends race and creed. It is anticipated that one out of every six couples may experience infertility at some point during their lives. Esco Medical is one of the Esco Lifesciences Group's divisions. We provide fertility clinics and laboratories with cutting-edge technology solutions. Long-term embryo incubators, ART workstations, anti-vibration tables, and time-lapse incubators are among the products we hope to develop.

The Silent Embryo Hypothesis serves as a guiding principle in the development of our products. According to this hypothesis, the less disturbed an embryo is, the better its developmental potential. The majority of our items are created in Denmark and manufactured in the European Union. Our main goal is to improve patient happiness and pregnancy success rates.
