Biological Safety Cabinets – Because Safety is Not an Option!

Posted: May 23, 2012

One of the most important aspects in a lab is the safety of personnel from harmful pathogens. This is the primary role of a Biological Safety Cabinet which uses particulate filters to remove bacteria and viruses from the air. It is highly important that biological safety cabinets are installed correctly and the following steps must be followed to ensure this:

  1. Make sure the cabinet is located away from the entrance/exits
  2. Do not install directly across from workstations
  3. Allow access to filters for annual certification testing and filter changes
  4. Top of the cabinet must be at least 18” below the ceiling

NuAire is LabWrench’s sponsor for Biological Safety Cabinets and they offer a wide variety of class I, II, and III cabinets for every lab’s needs. Check out this brochure on the ergonomic advantages of NuAire Biological Safety Cabinets.
