AniGARD e3 Animal Transfer Station Now Available From The Baker Company

Vertical-flow recirculating clean bench provides superior product protection and allergen control

SANFORD, Maine — March 20, 2012 — The Baker Company has added the AniGARD e3 animal transfer station (ATS) to its line of industry-leading animal-research products. The AniGARD e3 features partially recirculated vertical air flow and a unique momentum air curtain design that greatly enhances its ability to protect both personnel from occupational hazards (allergens) and animals from contamination. The ISO Class 4 (Class 10) clean bench also increases productivity through an improved user experience.

Animal transfer and bedding dumping generate high quantities of allergens, and the AniGARD e3 presents animal researchers with a way to maintain product and personnel protection. Product protection meets NSF 49 requirements for biosafety cabinets, and the allergen control is high. Research shows personnel protection by the AniGARD e3 approaches requirements set forth by NSF 49 as well.

"At The Baker Company, we're very mindful of the potential health hazards for lab workers and how important it is to safeguard their work," said Dan Eagleson, vice president of The Baker Company. "With the AniGARD e3, we are providing peace of mind in the entire laboratory environment."

The AniGARD e3 is also designed to improve the user's overall experience. It has slanted viewscreens on three sides and a well-lit workspace that reduces eyestrain for users. With an adjustable height and a 12-inch knee space, the clean bench is versatile enough for users to stand or sit comfortably. The access openings on the AniGARD e3 are generously sized, allowing cages to be moved in and out quickly.

The AniGARD e3 is the latest addition to the suite of energy efficient engineered (e3) products available from The Baker Company. It now includes StediFLOW, a self-adjusting motor technology that requires less energy and reduces heat output. The unit produces lower noise levels, plus the blower/motor system extends filter life, minimizing necessary filter replacements and lifecycle costs.

The Baker Company is now accepting orders for the AniGARD e3. More information, including complete specifications, is available online at www.bakerco.com/anigard.
