Manufacturers Trust D.A.I. Scientific

D.A.I. is proud to continue a 50+ year partnership with The Baker Company to provide best-in-class biological safety cabinets, clean benches, custom enclosures, class III glove boxes and vivarium hoods.

Baker was founded in 1951 in response to the need for contamination control. They designed and built the first clean air workstation. In 1964, Baker developed the first biological safety cabinet which provided personnel, product and environmental protection. This new design incorporated the momentum air curtain, which remains the most effective method to provide containment.

Baker designs and builds the world's best biological safety cabinets. Many of today's standards for performance, quality, and construction are based on Baker's original innovations. The Baker motto of "no minimum anything" drives their continued motivation to far exceed industry standards.

Nothing says more about a company than the warranty they use to support their products. All Baker biological safety cabinets/hoods offer a full 6 year parts and labor warranty. This is an industry best guarantee and helps to prove their hoods have the lowest total life cycle cost while providing the safest hood in real life conditions.

I frequently recommend DAI to my colleagues and their experience has been as good as mine.

Why D.A.I. Scientific

    Not all lab equipment suppliers are created equal. Here is why you should get a quote from D.A.I. Scientific:
  • Competitive Prices
    Since we directly represent the manufacturer, you get the best price available — unlike a distributor who buys the product and then marks up the price to you. We have long term relationships with these manufacturers that provide not only a great price but superior equipment packages.
  • Providing the Right Recommendations
    We work with a lot of lab equipment consultants and architecture and engineering firms to provide recommendations for new buildings or renovations. But we’re your resource no matter what. Companies continually call us for ideas and recommendations on equipment purchases even after a project is finished, and we’re happy to help.
  • 50+ Years of Experience
    We’ve sold thousands of pieces of lab equipment, which means we know how to avoid common challenges and pitfalls that can occur during a purchase. If you need help with purchasing a single piece of equipment, or an entire lab for a new building, let our experience save you time, money and unnecessary headaches.
  • No Surprise Fees
    We believe in complete transparency, which means we won’t surprise you with any fees during the process. We’re up front about our pricing, and our goal is to help you understand the complete cost from order and delivery to setup and training.
  • Training
    Our experienced, factory-trained representatives have the specialized knowledge to answer your questions and help you pick out exactly what you need. They can also help you set up your equipment, provide training for you and your lab technicians and answer questions over the lifespan of your product.
