The Bio Cart vs. The Competition

Air-Care’s Bio Cart is the standard by which portable containment carts are measured in the healthcare and clean room environments. Never before have maintenance and construction dust and debris been so easy to contain in hospitals and other sterile environments during required access to the area above the ceilings. Only the Bio Cart has a powered lifting and lowering of the top section to the ceiling, and only the Bio Cart has expanding bellows to contain the area between the top of the cart and the ceiling work area. The built in air scrubber uses a certified HEPA filter, but also adds UVC/UVGI lamps between the pre-filter and the HEPA filter for an added level of protection not found in other HEPA carts. A carbon pad is attached to the pre-filter to adsorb odors. Clean air is returned to the room through vents specifically located in the floor of the Bio Cart so no papers or other objects are disturbed by the exhaust airflow.
