Aurora Biomed VERSA - Model 110-Hood-HEPAUV - Liquid Handling System Modules
Aurora Biomed’s custom HEPA Filtered Hood, allows researchers to maintain a clean work area during all of its automated liquid handling processes. The unit has a built-in 254 nm ultraviolet light that allows the operator to irradiate the VERSA unit, microplates, tips and tubes.
The hood features a unique interlocking sash with a safety overlap to prevent gaps. The sash also has a safety switch that automatically turns off the ultraviolet light and activates the blower and fluorescent light when the sash is raised. HEPA filtration provides a particulate free work zone to help prevent contamination for ambient environments.
Housing Aurora Biomed’s liquid handling systems in an appropriate bio-safety cabinet such as a specialized hood allows the VERSA liquid handling systems to be utilized to handle BSL-2 and BSL-3 agents, while at the same time reducing the risk of iatrogenic infections in laboratory workers.
Each of the workstations within the VERSA Series of liquid handling equipment has different options and customizable functions. See below for a table listing which customization options are currently available for each workstation.
