International Leader

While NuAire is an American company, we also have several international business partnerships which allow us to better serve you, the global laboratory community. NuAire recently started manufacturing a line of Biological Safety Cabinets in China to supply products to the Asian markets via Techcomp, Ltd., a publicly traded Chinese company. In 2014, NuAire founded an international partnership with Hitachi Koki in order to supply high performance centrifuges to the North American market. NuAire can now provide customers with the sales and service of Hitachi High Speed, Ultra, and Micro Ultracentrifuges. With several other partnerships with a variety of European and Asian companies, we have sold over 100,000 biological safety cabinets to customers in 150 countries and have equipment located on all 7 continents.

In 1971, the National Institute of Health in Bethesda, Maryland tested its biological safety cabinets and found that 80 percent of their cabinets failed to protect both personnel and products. In response, the NIH put out a purchase specification (NIH-03-112c) for a new kind of biosafety cabinet, and engineer Max D. Peters got to work in his garage, designing and creating a cabinet that would actually protect the people using it, along with the important work that they were doing. What he came up with ended up being the first modern-day Biological Safety Cabinet, and after he was awarded the NIH contract to make the new cabinets, a new laboratory equipment company -- NuAire -- was born.

Our products make lab work easier and safer, and our biosafety cabinets are celebrated for being quiet, easy to use and efficient to operate while requiring less maintenance. As NuAire continues to grow, we are committed to continuously improving our products and expanding our offerings, and we always strive to provide you with the highest level of personnel, environmental and product protection possible.
