GEMINI Vertical laminar airflow cabinets

They are used in all those situations in which it is necessary to protect the product from harmful effects deriving from the uncontrolled diffusion of airport contaminants during its handling.

Since it is not a biological safety cabin, it CANNOT be used for handling pathogens.


They are normally used in the laboratories of Microbiology, Molecular Biology and is increasingly used in various application fields:


• Quality control in the food industry


• Micromechanical assemblies


• Amplification of nucleic acids and thermocyclizations





  • External structure in epoxy powder coated cold-rolled steel for excellent corrosion resistance to the attack by aggressive common chemicals
  • Rear wall in stainless steel AISI 304 L, designed to conform to requirements and pass the “cleanability test”
  • Work surface in stainless steel AISI 304L fixed in one piece perforated
  • Front window: Stratified hinged safety glass to give easy access to large items. It is provided with gas springs to keep it open during maintenance or sanitization operations
  • Filtration:H14 HEPA/ULPA filter with an efficiency better than 99,995 % MPPS (EN-1822)
  • Operation Condition: Air cleanliness in Class ISO 3 as per ISO EN 14644-1
  • Motor blower: direct coupled motor, electronic speed controlled to maintain a constant laminar air flow of 0.45m/sec, and compensate for a partially clogged filter up to a maximum plenum pressure of 40 mm of water
  • ü  Servicing side glass with ports for service taps installation


  • The user-friendly practical keyboard and the rear-lit LCD (optional) will continuously display all required data keeping the user constantly informed of the cabinet conditions in operation, and in particular:

• display of laminar airflow velocity
• display of inside and outside temperature
• display of residual lifetime of HEPA/ULPA filter, UV Lamp.
• display of total number of hours of operation
• display of saturation level of HEPA/ULPA filter


  • Audio-visual alarms (optional) provided for:

• out of range or incorrect laminar airflow velocity
• front window opened
• clogging of HEPA/ULPA filter
• end of life-cycle of UV lamp
• fan-motor malfunction
• power failure


  • Lighting: fluorescent tubes in built-in housing, placed outside the sterile area.
  • D.O.P.-DEHS inlet port for testing the HEPA/ULPA filters
  • UV sterilizing lamp (optional) installed on the aluminium front closure panel complete two switch-off countdown timers, one variable on a 0-3 hours scale (1 minute steps), the other set to 3 fixed hours.
