Indeed, I definitely would echo the comments below! We have an Aria-IIu within a Baker BioProtect-II bio-safety cabinet, but inside a very small room. We have been experiencing serious over-heating problems, with internal temperatures reaching well in excess of ten degrees above the stated maximum operating temperature for the Aria. So, Caveat Emptor!

Betsy, we've had the Baker hood for a few years now, and its in a very small room and is not ducted to building exhaust, and we have trouble with heat buildup inside the hood. If you are in a larger room (this was reportedly the smallest room they've installed it in) and can vent some of the heat away by connecting it to building exhaust, you should be ok. Make sure to leave enough room for the wet cart outside of the hood, too--its possible to put it under the table inside the hood but definitely not the best setup to do it that way.

This is a test of the message footer function on the BBG listserver...
maybe it will be used one day.
