The bioBUBBLE Positive Pressure Transport Cart is a HEPA filtered, portable, environment which provides ultra-clean isolation. Use as a dedicated transport vehicle or as a housing environment for small groups.

Provide environmental separation between multiple groups or studies

Dedicate single units to individual researchers or studies

Provide ultra-clean isolated transport through both vivarium and non-vivarium space

Provide temporary housing within procedural rooms, surgical rooms and imaging areas

Dock directly to bioBUBBLE Clean Rooms, isolators, and autoclave containers

Simplify transport of sterilized materials

NEGATIVE PRESSURE TRANSPORT CART
The bioBUBBLE Negative Pressure Transport Cart is a portable environment with 100% HEPA-filtered exhaust. This unit provides transportable biocontainment and dedicated quarantine transport for materials or small groups. These units can also be used for the transport of anesthetized non-human primates under primary containment.

Primary containment and quarantine applications

Use multiple units to separate groups, species or studies within the same room.

Dedicate single units to individual researchers or studies.

Contained, discreet transport through non-vivarium areas.

Transport of non-human primates throughout facility within primary containment.

Safely transport from receiving area to quarantine

NEGATIVE PRESSURE CONTAINMENT ENCLOSURES
bioBUBBLE Containment Enclosures are soft walled, negative pressure enclosures powered by 60 – 100 air changes per hour of HEPA-filtered exhaust. bioBUBBLE Containment Enclosures are completely customizable, and constructed in any size, shape, or configuration to suit the specific needs of your space and research. Available in two design styles: Freestanding Containment Rooms and Architecturally Renovated Containment Rooms.

APPLICATIONS

Primary biocontainment animal housing at ABSL 2, ABSL 3 and ABSL 4 levels (P2, P3, and P4).
Quarantine environments

Primary containment within surgical suites or procedural areas.

Isolation of aerosol chambers, Madison chambers, cell sorters, and other equipment.

Powder/compound mixing and preparation

Biocontainment of pollens and plant matter for genetically modified agricultural products, research and horticulture.

HEPA VACUUM
Lightweight, easy to clean, HEPA-filtered vacuum with hospital grade casters for easy maneuverability.

HEPA Vacuums clean all surfaces while reducing allergens and odors.

Other cleaning methods and vacuums can stir up dust particles or blow particles back into the environment.

Common HEPA Vac uses include cleaning of:

bioBUBBLE pre-filters & blowers

Cage changing work surface

Animal hair during shaving Animal racks

Vivarium floors Cage dumping areas

POWER UNIT WITH DIFFUSION HEAD
bioBUBBLE Diffusion Heads provide high levels of localized HEPA filtration. Diffusion Heads drastically reduce the presence of dust, dander, allergens and other airborne particlulates in heavily populated rooms and high traffic cage wash areas. Install the bioBUBBLE Diffusion Head in conjunction with customized HVAC supply redirection ducts to collect and HEPA filter all incoming supply air from the building ventilation system.
Diffusion Heads greatly improve air quality by drastically reducing the presence of dust, dander, allergens and other airborne particulates in heavily populated rooms and high traffic cage wash areas.

CLEAN ROOM, ISOLATION & BARRIER ENCLOSURES
bioBUBBLE Clean Rooms are soft walled, positive pressure enclosures powered by 80 – 100 air changes per hour of HEPA filtration. bioBUBBLE Clean Rooms are completely customizable, and constructed in any size, shape, or configuration to suit the specific needs of your space and research. Available in two basic design styles: Freestanding Clean Rooms and Architecturally Renovated Clean Rooms.

APPLICATIONS

Animal Housing

Procedural Space

Aquatic Research

Horticultural Research

Manufacturing Processes

Product Mixing & Preparation

Toxicology

Pharmaceutical Processing, Preparation and Packaging

CHANGING STATION
The bioBUBBLE Changing Station provides a highly portable, ultra-clean environment that protects sensitive animal models during cage transfer. The Changing Station is a critical component in maintaining the aseptic integrity of the microenvironment.

Attach to a bioBUBBLE Enclosure for sidewall access in a multiple person cage changing operation. This significantly increases efficiency of the cage transfer process and limits access and excess traffic within the bioBUBBLE enclosure, further reducing the possibility of contamination.

BENCHTOP BIOCONTAINMENT ENCLOSURES
bioBUBBLE Benchtop Biocontainment Enclosures (BBE’s) are ideal primary containment solutions for cell sorters, incubators, centrifuges, microscopes, or any benchtop laboratory equipment. The BBE contains pathogen laden aerosols and other airborne particulates emitted during laboratory procedures. Use the BBE in lieu of cumbersome and expensive biosafety cabinets.

LOW VIBRATION Vinyl walls absorb vibration, minimizing impact on sensitive instruments

EASY ACCESS All sides of the BBE open for ease of use, cleaning, and service

ERGONOMIC For daily operations, flexible vinyl front opens completely, allowing total access to all equipment. Experience better ergonomics versus traditional biosafety cabinets.

DURABLE Enduring materials withstand the effects of harsh laboratory sterilants and disinfectants.

SMALL FOOTPRINT Low weight and easily moved to new locations. Custom designed to enclose equipment and minimize footprint.

LOW COST

BEDDING DISPOSAL UNITS
bioBUBBLE Bedding Disposal Units are lightweight, portable units designed with the respiratory health of animal care workers in mind. Each unit draws bedding dust, dander and allergens away from personnel and into the HEPA filter. Continuous operation of the Full-Size Bedding Disposal Unit provides over 1100 cfm of HEPA filtration, and 1025 cfm with the half-size unit, to the surrounding area.

LIGHTWEIGHT Easy to use, portable, low cost unit

HIGHLY EFFECTIVE Capture velocity of 100 feet per minute at outside rim of standard 30 gallon receptacle.

FLEXIBLE DESIGN Custom height modification available to accommodate any size receptacle.

REDUCES CAGE BREAKAGE Soft, flexible surfaces minimize cage breakage – no hard surfaces come into contact with cages.

USER FRIENDLY Open design provides a much more ergonomically friendly user experience. No reaching or leaning to empty cages. This results in a unit that is easier to use, so it gets used more often.

High levels of filtration in the cage wash area greatly reduce airborne particulates & minimize the opportunity for disease transmission throughout the vivarium.

ANTEROOMS/AIRLOCKS
bioBUBBLE Anterooms are soft walled enclosures available as a Freestanding Units or Architectural Renovations. Freestanding and Architecturally Renovated Anterooms operate with dedicated positive, dedicated negative or convertible pressure airflows. Powered by 60 – 100 air changes per hour of HEPA filtration.  bioBUBBLE constructs Anterooms in any size or configuration, customized to suit the needs of your specific application.

APPLICATIONS

Dedicated de-gowning space

Dedicated gowning space

Docking systems Air barrier

Solve air balance problems

Eliminate transmission of airborne contaminants

Regulatory compliance

AIR SHOWERS
The bioBUBBLE Air Shower provides a high volume, HEPA filtered air stream to create a localized area of high filtration. This serves as a barrier to prevent the transmission of airborne contaminants while providing an ultra-clean environment for gowning into or out of a controlled environment. Air Showers can also compensate for improper air balance in building ventilation systems by providing high levels of filtration at entry points.

CUSTOM OPTIONS Multiple sizes and custom designs available to fit any space and suit any application.

FILTER CONTAMINANTS AND PARTICULATES Limits disease transmission and reduces dust, dander, and allergens.

SPECIALIZED ENVIRONMENT Provides localized filtered environments for sensitive procedural work.
