CytoFAST Top Cytotoxic Safety Cabinets belong to the latest generation of laminar airflow systems manufactured by Faster, in which the choice of materials of construction of the highest quality guarantees conformity to the strictest safety standards.

CytoFAST Top are Cytotoxic Drug and Microbiological Safety Cabinets designed and built to performance requirements of the EN 12469:2000 and DIN 12980:2005-06 European Standards.

They are triple HEPA filter technology cabinet, with 100% of the air filtered via the main H14 HEPA/ULPA filter directly below the work surface and then 70% of the air re-circulated via the recirculating H14 HEPA/ULPA filter within the cabinet, whilst the remaining 30% is discharged through an exhaust H14 HEPA/ULPA filter.

CytoFAST Top have been designed to guarantee the product, personnel and environmental protection and they are primary suitable for applications such as: preparation and handling of cytotoxic drugs, preparation and manipulation of antineoplastic chemotherapeutics, preparation and manipulation of CMR drugs and any other agents likely to cause genetic alterations or synergetic activities with other materials.

Since CytoFAST Top meet also EN 12469 as for Class II Biohazard cabinets, they can be adopted also for a wide range of disciplines in applications such as: Microbiology, Virology, Haematology, Cell culture, Genetics, Handling of hazardous agents to human beings or animals.

The ambient air is drawn in from the slots at the stainless-steel base of the front opening and it then passes through the H14 HEPA/ULPA filter bank below work surface, from where it is drawn up and blown into the plenum of the re-circulating and exhaust fan.

The “bio-dynamic sealing system” of the negative pressure plenum ensures that all contaminated particles are kept inside the system and are automatically drawn to the plenum or pressure chamber to be captured by the main re-circulating and exhaust H 14 HEPA/ULPA filters.

The fan system assures that no part of the cabinet comes ever under positive contaminated pressure to the laboratory, thus protecting and preserving the environment and operating personnel from exposure to cytotoxic drug, CMR compounds and agents of bio-contamination.

70% of the filtered air is re-circulated (after passing through a H14 HEPA/ULPA filter) in an air cleanliness in Class ISO 3, according to ISO 14644-1 laminar flow pattern downwards into the work chamber and the remaining 30% is exhausted to atmosphere through another H14 HEPA/ULPA filter.

Best technical solution – cleanability first of all: Front stratified hinged safety glass, the frontal opening is set to 200 mm. The whole front of the safety cabinet can also be opened upwards as it is hinged on the top – in order to allow easy access for complete and effective cleaning and decontamination. Single piece work chamber in stainless steel AISI 304 designed to fulfill the requirements and pass the cleanibility test according to EN 12469:2000.

ECS® Eco Controling System: The new ECS® microprocessor employs the latest innovative methods of integrated management of all principal functions of ventilation and filtration – self-regulating all the main filtration and ventilation system components – compensating for declining pressure drops and restoring power balance. Combining the use of AC motor-blowers and certified low pressure-drop filters, the new ECS® controlling system optimize power consumption, reducing CO2 emissions into the environment.

Anti Bacterial Coating: Exclusive Dupont™ ALESTA® anti-bacterial “Ag+ cations-based solution”, capable to prevent microbial contamination of surfaces thereby inhibiting long term surface growth.

Easy handling and maintenance: CytoFAST Top can pass through standard 800 mm wide door openings thanks to the overall depth of just 785mm. All service operations are available from the front of the cabinet. All service operations are available from the front of the cabinet. Despite the overall height, CytoFAST Top have a demountable base stand of 255 mm. Without this stand the cabinet height is 1995 mm and can easily pass through doors of 2 meters height.

Automatic safety service connections for gas and vacuum and one electrical socket fitted as standard in each size model.
