Product news

  • BlueSeries- the most silent safety cabinet on the market!

    Save your brain, concentrate on work

    European Agency for Safety and Health at work has made work related noise one of its main themes. Current Microbiological Safety Cabinets have high noise levels and the
    EN norm settles for under 65 dB(A).
    Noise is undesired and unpleasant for workers. It puts load on brains and can harm physically and mentally.
    High sound level not only affects hearing, stress level and blood pressure but also weakens concentration, creativity and comprehension.
    Kojair has developed whit the new Blue Series a Microbiological Safety Cabinet according to EN12469 with sound levels from 44 dB(A) and low consumption of energy, from 170 W (size 130)

  • "Manu-N" - A real marathon safety glove!

    The nitrile protective glove "Manu N" was specially developed as PPE (Personal protective equipment) of the highest category III for the safe use of CMR drugs (e.g. cytostatics) and for working with biological agents (e.g. fungi, bacteria, viruses, etc.).
    The special material composition of these protective gloves is responsible for the unique permeation test results (penetration at a molecular level) obtained with various substances. Even very aggressive substances such as Carmustine or Vincristine are completely stopped by this protective glove for more than 8 hours.
    Tested cytostatics: Carmustine, Cisplatine, Cyclophosphamide, Cytarabin, Daunorubicin, Doxorubicin, Etoposide, 5-FU, Irinotecan, Methotrexate, Mytomycin, Oxaliplatin, Paclitaxel, Thiotepa und Vincristine.
    For a comprehensive list of the permeation results please go to "Downloads".
    As there are no European standards concerning the resistance to viruses, the protective gloves have also been tested to the American standard ASTM F1671; ensuring that for applications in biological laboratories you will also be completely safe.
    In accordance with EN 420, the BERNER Manu N safety gloves are marked with a product-specific print on every glove shaft.
