What does your perfect working environment sound like?
A little white noise?
The low twittering of a radio in the background?
Whatever your preference it’s nice to be able to hear yourself think when working, especially in a laboratory environment working with important samples or materials.
The modern laboratory is filled with equipment and people all emitting noise which can combine to reach an unbearable level. In fact, noise exposure above 55 dBA, which is similar to a spinning dishwasher or chatter in a restaurant, has been linked to depression. Researchers have proven that prolonged exposure to noise increases the bodies levels of the stress hormone cortisol which is not helpful when concentrating on your laboratory research.
The Faster Premium model of class II microbiological safety cabinet, is known to be the quietest in the market, with dBA of 49 (1.2m model)… and that’s not using clever noise testing equipment, that’s the result of noise testing in a real life lab!
Andrew Palfreeman, Laboratory Manager at Barts Cancer Institute, said “…your cabinets really are so quiet, it’s amazing”!
So how do we do it? Well there’s no trickery here either. We combine, low pressure drop filters with, textile plenum, deep back wall and DC motors to produce the quietest and most energy efficient safety cabinet in the market (and reliably so).
