Analytica hosted the first BSC protected with ZEROCOAT
The new BiOptima IT Biological Safety Cabinet integrated by an innovative antimicrobial coating proven to reduce contamination risks has recently been promoted at Analytica 2022. The new BSC has been designed by Telstar to integrate pharmacy compounding software programs.
Aimed at hospital pharmacies, BiOptima IT is particularly designed for the integration of software solutions for oncologic therapy planning, therapy monitoring and the preparation of cytotoxics. Equipped with all the necessary hardware for effortless integration in the daily routine of a modern-day pharmacy or to upgrade existing pharmacies to a state-of-the-art compounding facility, this range of cabinets are designed and manufactured according to EN 12469 and the DIN 12980 standards.
BiOptima IT is treated with the innovative antimicrobial bacteriological barrier Zerocoat, a photocatalytic treatment based on titanium dioxide. The new antimicrobial treatment technology provides the interior of the cabinet with a high antimicrobial power and reduces cleaning and maintenance costs. Incorporated on the inside of the cabin, this treatment provides a self-cleaning surface which breaks down organic matter when the light system is triggered, and fully protects the work surface
During Analytica, the company also promoted innovative microbiological biosafety cabinets, suitable for the manipulation of samples with biological risk level 2 and 3. Bio II Advance Plus offers a smaller body than the market average whilst maintaining an extremely comfortable working space. With dimensions of 759 mm in width and 1260 mm in height, the Bio II Advance Plus provides a working volume of 340 dm3. Equipped to achieve maximum efficiency, this new range of BSCs integrates energy saving EC fans and dimmable LED illumination that ensures optimum protection levels as well as low energy consumption. It has been designed in compliance with the European standards EN 12469 and certified by TÜV-Nord, in Hamburg Germany.
In addition of this, Boreas, a -86º ultra-low-temperature freezer designed to increase average performance by 20% was also displayed during the event. An innovative mechanical design enhances robustness, efficiency and ergonomics as well as ensuring the integrity of the cold preservation process. Equipped with VIP vacuum panels, the freezer guarantees the highest level of thermal insulation and maintains a temperature of -80ºC with ambient temperatures up to +28ºC. Unlike standard freezers designed with panels based on polyurethane foam, a thinner inner insulation provides Boreas with an enlarged storage capacity of up to 30%. Boreas uses high purity natural refrigerant CFC free gases that contribute to environment preservation.
Finally, Telstar displayed LyoBeta Mini, a compact (W94cm x H76cm x D63cm) pilot-scale freeze dryer specifically intended for small scale formulation, research, and development work. It has been designed with a condenser capacity 6 Kg which is separate from the product chamber. It belongs to the LyoBeta range of freeze dryers that encompasses flexibility, high performance, and small footprint required in a laboratory unit, as well as advanced process control systems, management software and interface features.
