The GS-Series filtration fume cupboards can be provided in ST version (grossing workstation) representing the most comprehensive and advanced range of safety cabinets to protect laboratory personnel and the environment from toxic chemicals released during handling of harmful chemicals within anatomical pathology laboratories. Thanks to the its own embedded filtration system allows the protection of personnel without the need of any complex ventilation system and energy wasting for air renewal. It can equip one or more activated carbon filters for vapors retention (filter specific for formaldehyde retention available) or absolute filters for particles (HEPA H14 or ULPA U17). Combination of different types of filters can be equipped as well,  in order to enanche the retention capability in accordance to user’s needs. In compliance with BS and EN Standards and international health & safety regulations.

It features:

  • High containment factor ensured by an especially designed aerodynamic, tested to EN14175-3 and EN14175-6 at 0.3m7s and 0.5m/s face velocity from authorized body
  • High efficient activated carbon filtration system, BS7989:2001 certified with specific tests against isopropyl alcool, ammonia, sulphur dioxide and formaldehyde showing a 99% filtration efficiency
  • Absolute particles filter availability HEPA classe H14 (99.995% @ 0,3 µm-Rif. EN1822:2009)
  • Pre-filtration through dust-prefilter M6 class to prevent premature saturation of the main filters
  • Air-tight plenum that guarantees zero leakages
  • Counterweighted sliding front and lateral panels made with laminated safety glass (3+3 PVB) that ensure high chemical resistance and durability
  • Variable speed embedded fan according to frontal sash position (VAV system – variable air volume)
  • Internal IP65 lighting wiith 1000lux capability
  • Thress sizes availability: 1200/1500/1800 mm widths

Functional flexibility

The whole GS-Series fume cupboard range can work within three different modes:

  • R-MODE: 100% recycle mode. The fume cupboard is equipped with filtration system and fan and recycle lab-air without affectin the ventilation system of the lab
  • FE S/M-MODE: filtration+exhaust mode with embedded fan. The fume cupboard is equipped with filtration system and fan and works exhausting the air thorugh a duct collard in a exhausting-pipe using on-board fan but keeping at the same time the filtration system on board. This solution simplifies the installazion of the unit as no remote-fan is required.
  • FE C/M-MODE: filtration+exhaust mode with remote fan. The fume cupboard is equipped with filtration system and works exhausting the air thorugh a duct collard in a exhausting-pipe using a frequency-conveter-controlled fan but keeping at the same time the filtration system on board. This solution allow to fit installation-sites where long-exhausting pipes are present. According to exhaust-system layout the fume cupboard can even be equipepd with a parzialization valve.

Hybrid solution are even available such as the connection of the fume cupboard to an exhasting system using a thimble and secondary remote blower.

CE marking

  • 2006/42/UE Machinery Directive
  • 2014/35/UE Low Voltage Directive (50-1000 V)
  • 2014/30/UE Electromagnetic Compatibility Directive
  • 2011/65/UE ROHS Directive

According to following standards:

  • EN 61010-1: 2013: Safety requirements for electrical equipment for measurement, control and laboratory use (classification CEI 66.5)


The 1.5mm thickness AISI304 stainless steel worktop is equipped with:

  • wide cutting area with undermount fluid-recovery sink equipped with water nozzles for wasting fluids washing
  • sink with hot/cold water tap equipped with pneumatic-electrically controlled macerator
  • drip-cup for exhausted formalin recovery equipped with waste-filter, cap and swanneck fresh-formalin foot-controlled spigot
  • underbench closed storage cabinet with retractable drawer for formalin tanks
  • fresh-formalin supply system with 12V-DC pump and foot control and level sensor on carboy with acoustic and visual alarm

The frontal sash is counterweighted and can be manually moved. Electrical handling available as optional.

The control panel of the fume cupboard (TIMELOG) allow a real-time showing of  main functional parameters such as:

  • air face velocity and exhausting flow rate
  • residual time to next filter or prefilter replacement/control (two different timers)
  • working opening height
  • air temperature
  • warming-up cycle with self-testing routint of the prefilter saturation level

The TIMELOG allow the showing of the following alarms:

  • air face velocity below the safety-threshold
  • working opening height above maximum
  • air-temperature beyond maximum level for a good absorption capacity
  • expired filter/prefilter estimated lifetime
