The Thermo Scientific Forma Class II Type A2 Biological Safety Cabinets provide clean air environment and enhanced product, personnel, and environment protection when working with agents assigned to biosafety levels 1, 2, or 3. 

The Forma 1286 biosafety cabinets are designed with a frameless glass window that ensures a clear, unobstructed view of the work area. The large 10-inch sash opening also enhances the operator’s mobility and depth of reach into the workspace without compromising protection. The patented, high velocity Vortex Channels provide added product, user and environment protection. These move the turbulent air into the return air system, minimizing the dangers of particulates escaping from or entering the cabinet.
