In recent months, we have seen the need for Class 2 safety cabinets increase dramatically. This has been due to an exponential increase in demand for these products to help with testing coronavirus samples or researching a vaccine. Demand has outstripped supply for some of the most well-known brands. It is because of this, that users are having to think laterally and consider other brands of Class 2 safety cabinets.
In this month’s blog, we will review take a look at Noroit’s Solis Class II safety cabinet and see how it fairs with some of the better known brands out there.
Noroit is a French manufacturer of Class 2 safety cabinets and other clean air products such as isolators and laminar flow modules. The company was first established in 2006 and their factory is based in Nantes, in western France. Their core market is within research, pharmaceutical and hospital sectors. Noroit can count large organisations such as Sanofi, GSK and The Pasteur Institute as their customers. They are particularly strong in France and other predominantly French speaking markets around the world.
The Solis Class 2 safety cabinet is available in four different sizes. The depth and the height are always fixed at 570mm and 650mm respectively. However, the width is available in 900mm, 1200mm, 1500mm and 1800mm sizes.
The unique selling point of the Solis is its Twist & Clean© design, along with its high level of customisation. The safety cabinet can be easily cleaned by opening up the side ‘wings’ and dropping the glass window into a horizontal position. The unit can then be easily cleaned without having to put unnecessary strain on the users back or shoulders.
The Solis can also be fitted with a variety of different optional extras. For example, a webcam can be installed on the inside to record and store manipulations. USB sockets and a calculator can also be fitted to the internal chamber. In fact, Noroit will consider all manner of optional extras the user requests. All you have to do is ask and they will consider if it can be done!
The Solis is biological safety cabinet that has been built with the end user in mind. Noroit seem to understand exactly what annoys the user when using other safety cabinet brands and they think of solutions to counter this. Their products are of good quality and are backed by a 2 year warranty. They are well worth considering, particularly if you have a very specific requirement.
