Telstar Technologies, S.L.

Spanish Group: One of the Five Main Suppliers of Biological Safety Cabinets Worldwide.

Telestar presents in MEDICA 2008 the latest novelities in laminar flow technology an biological safety cabinets.

Terrassa (Barcelona), 14 November 2008. Telstar, whose activity is centered on the design, fabrication and marketing of high technology equipment for laboratories, pharmaceutical industry and hospitals, will participate in the international fair MEDICA displaying technological novelties directed at the life science market. MEDICA will be celebrated between the 19th and the 22nd November in Düsseldorf.

For hospitals, Telstar will be presenting the latest novelties in laminar flow technology, for operating rooms, through its trade names LMC Telstar in Germany and LUWA Telstar in Holland, both belonging to the TELSTAR group. The Spanish group is currently a market leader in the centre and north of Europe, in the design and installation of laminar flow operating rooms, with 30% share of the market. The laminar flow technology provides a substantial improvement to the environmental quality of the operating rooms. Consequently, with this technology the costs, incurred in post-operation infections caused by bacteria suspended in the air, can be reduced by an average of 3,600 Euros per patient.

In the laboratory market, TELSTAR is currently one of the five main suppliers of biological safety cabinets, worldwide. In Medica, Telstar presents LYOQUEST, the latest-generation laboratory freeze-dryer capable of making recipes with temperature and vacuum control. The device is the perfect solution for research and development laboratories due to its versatility and range of features.

For the first time, the Telstar catalogue includes a biological safety cubicle especially designed for preparing cytostatics that allows two people to work together simultaneously. The CYTOULTRA 6 cubicle has a patented sealed closing system that guarantees maximum safety. A digital display with a screen shows the main parameters of the cubicle and allows continuous monitoring of the filter status, optimising their operation.

Likewise, Telstar is presenting at Expoquimia the CLEAN AIR class III cubicle, a class III biological safety cabinet that guarantees maximum safety for the user, the product and the environment. This is a completely airtight cubicle in which the work area is kept at negative pressure, which is accessed using gloves. This cubicle is especially designed for working with biological products that have risk levels 1, 2, 3 and 4.
