Transfer Case

A Formica-coated, wooden cabinet designed for transferring, cultivating, propagating, and/or inoculating any biological specimens - from micro-organisms such as bacteria, fungi (mushrooms) to cells and tissues of animals and plants - to prevent contamination. 

The Harbest transfer case has a unique frontal parallel glass facing the worker with a 37" x 6" wide opening. An ideal design for positive airflow that protects the user from the samples and equipment inside. 

Our transfer case is cost-efficient and helps with overall lab productivity. Its quality can compare with expensive stainless steel-type laminar flow hoods. 

 

Blower Box

A heavy-duty vertical wooden box that releases positive air pressure out to the transfer cases. The lower part of the box has a protective fiber foam and UV-C Germicidal Lamp to pre-sanitize all possible contaminants (dust, microscopic mites, microbial spores) before it passes through the middle part of the box with H.E.P.A. (High-Efficiency Particulate Adsorption) Filter to absorb 99.97% of the particulates with the filtration efficiency of 0.3 μm which then blows positive airflow through the transfer case using a 2" turbo-type blower.

It is designed to accommodate not only the transfer case but also the whole transfer/inoculating room. A single blower box can connect up to four transfer cases inside your laboratory.
