If you want to protect your research, yourself or the external environment from exposure to biohazards and you also need to protect your process from contaminations, a Biological Safety Cabinet Class II Type A2 will be an excellent choice. Primary applications include (but are not limited to): pharmaceutical, toxicological, microbiological and cell culturing. Please ensure your BSC is NSF Certified (the United States National Sanitation Foundation).
Class II biological safety cabinets are primary engineering controls typically used for microbiological studies, cell culture, pharmaceutical procedures and toxicology. BSC classifications and standards for the United States are set by NSF International (formerly the National Sanitation Foundation). NSF defines four types of Class II cabinets (A1, A2, B1 and B2) that are distinguished by differences in airflow patterns and velocities, HEPA air filter positions, ventilation rates and exhaust methods.
