Newswise — NuAire’s AireGard ES NU-201 Table Top and NU-301 Console Horizontal Laminar Airflow Hoods provide a HEPA filtered clean work area that is ideal for operations requiring a particle-free, bacteria-free, clean air environment. The Class 5 clean work area offers an excellent work space for small laboratory appliances, microscopes, pipetting, sterile drug preparations, IV admixture preparation, or any application requiring work-in-progress protection from outside potentially harmful contaminants.

The NU-201 and NU-301 Essentials Control System has simple switches which control the blower, lights, and outlets while a mini-helic gauge measures plenum performance.

HEPEX™ Zero Leak Airflow System - The HEPEX™ plenum inflates to provide quiet uniform air without transferring vibration. Positive pressure chambers and ducts are surrounded by negative pressure eliminating potential leaks. The HEPEX™ fabrics are incredibly durable, they are flameproof, provide a barrier against water, gases, fluid, and dust as well as resist to chemicals, oils, and greases. It holds antibacterial properties and is impregnable, harmful materials become trapped in the filters.


NuAire’s AireGard ES NU-126 Vertical Laminar Airflow Workstation creates a clean-air environment needed for laboratory work, testing, manufacturing, inspection, or pharmaceutical procedures, preparations of IV Admixture, Antibiotics, or other drugs. The NU-126 is great for use with a thermal cycler, small centrifuge, or other types of small equipment where clean air and product protection is a requirement.


NU-126 FlowGard Control System Microprocessor control System Microprocessor controls monitor plenum pressure providing audile and visual alarms for low and high airflow.

All AireGard Workstations utilize TruLaminar Airflow; unidirectional airflow moving along parallel flow lines at a constant velocity of 90 fpm (±10%) minimizes air turbulence within the work zone lessening the chance for cross contamination. The ultra-high efficiency motor saves on your energy bills while increasing filter life lowering your total cost of ownership.

NuAire’s ergonomic cabinet design reduces user fatigue and improves process accuracy. Customize a NuAire laminar flow hood to meet your research application or clean room requirements.
