Foster Cabinets (Modified for AKTA Systems)

Foster cabinets, recognised for having excellent temperature stability, are ‘recommended’ by GE Healthcare for cooling their AKTA systems, their use started in ~1999 by Jencons. Working closely with GE Healthcare, we now offer modification of Foster cabinets for AKTA systems, particularly the AKTA pure protein purification unit. Each unit is fully customised to exact requirements for customer, eg number & position of access ports, electric sockets & scaffold rods – even down to size of 2-tier keg rack or placement of shelving, specific to equipment dimensions. We offer delivery & siting by specialist carriers who can tip/tilt/stairwalk to get into laboratories (subject to site survey)
