A cabinet with a deep well has a configurable work surface that can be removed from the cabinet. Up to four covers placed over the recessed well create an upper work surface in the cabinet. Combined with well dividers, the cabinet can be configured to optimize workflow and equipment requirements. Any or all of the work surface pieces may be used at any time or position in the cabinet. With access to more area, you can easily work safely within the biosafety cabinet.
Since researchers and technicians may spend many hours per day working within biosafety cabinets, user comfort is essential. Our research shows that productivity in the lab can be improved with appropriate ergonomic design. The additional depth provided by a deep well, actually improves ergonomic comfort for researchers. For example, the expanded work area allows a technician to place a cage in the recessed well, remove the lid, and perform the procedure, creating better efficiency and ergonomics over the cage.
When any changes are made to a cabinet – including if something is introduced in the work area – it should undergo full microbiological testing to prove that there is no disturbance to the airflow stream and that the classification and protection levels of the biosafety cabinet are maintained.
Custom biosafety cabinets with a deep well option are suitable for research and clinical diagnostic work involving tissue culturing of possibly infectious samples, animal cage-changing, live cell imaging, nuclear pharmacy preparations, and work with instrumentation. Here are a couple examples of how our customers have utilized this custom biosafety cabinet.
