The LabGard® ES (Energy Saver) model NU-813 is a Containment Primary Engineering Control (C-PEC) classified as a Class I Containment Ventilated Enclosure (CVE) offering personnel protection for the safe use of non-sterile hazardous drugs (HDs) in a Containment Segregated Compounding Area (C-SCA). The CVE may also be used for the use of animal necropsy.
The LabGard® ES NU-813 Bench Top Class I Containment Ventilated Enclosure (CVE) is a benchtop containment cabinet intended to provide personnel protection when handling low-risk aerosols and particulate matter. To protect people working in the lab, the cabinet provides an air barrier, which minimizes the chance that any contaminants generated within migrate into the room. Equipped with a HEPA filter, the air flows through the cabinet then exits through the filter, which removes any contaminants that could put personnel at risk. This containment ventilated enclosure (CVE) is equipped with an electronic control system for easy usage, as well as an ultra-high-efficiency motor, which can help you save energy and cut energy bill costs in the lab.

Dynamic Air Barrier
The LabGard® ES Nu-813 Bench Top Class I Containment Cabinet is equipped with an air barrier for personnel protection. The cabinet has a strong inflow air velocity – at 80 fpm (.40 m/s), which minimizes the risk of contaminant migration.
Redundant Exhaust Filter Option
This containment cabinet has multiple filter options, which were created to fit the needs of your specific lab. You can either choose to use a Dual HEPA filter, which is recirculated into the lab environment, or you can opt for a single filter connected to your HVAC system. This option meets compounding pharmacy standard USP 800 for Non-sterile Hazardous powders.
Ultra High-Efficiency Motor
The cabinet is outfitted with an ultra-high-efficiency motor, which offers several benefits to users. The motor will help you save on your energy bills, increase filter life and ultimately lower your total cost of ownership.
Bag in Bag Out Exhaust HEPA filter(s)
The NU-813 cabinet was created to be convenient and easy for lab technicians to use. Its bag in bag out exhaust HEPA filter is a simplified way for you to remove the exhaust HEPA filter, without the risk of exposing yourself or other lab personnel to potential contaminants after decontamination procedures.
AeroMax Electronic Control System
The AeroMax Control System makes the cabinet user-friendly and straightforward to control. The control system, which has an easy user interface, LED screen, and function keys, can perform a range of useful functions, including controlling the blower, controlling lights, controlling outlets, disabling the audible alarm switch, controlling blower DC ECM motor and more. The AeroMax Control System also monitors and displays airflow system performance via its PresurFlow monitor.
