Here are some key features and information about Biological Safety Cabinets:
Purpose: Biological Safety Cabinets are used to protect the laboratory worker, the surrounding environment, and the materials being manipulated within the cabinet.
- Class I BSC: Provides personnel and environmental protection but does not protect the materials inside the cabinet.
- Class II BSC: Provides both personnel and environmental protection and is the most common type used in laboratories. It is further divided into types A1, A2, B1, and B2 based on exhaust systems and protection levels.
- Class III BSC: A completely enclosed, gas-tight cabinet for working with highly infectious materials. Operations are conducted through gloves attached to the front.
Airflow: BSCs have a controlled airflow to ensure that any contaminants are contained within the cabinet and do not escape into the laboratory or endanger the user.
HEPA Filtration: BSCs are equipped with HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Air) filters to capture particles and microorganisms, providing a sterile working environment.
UV Light: Some BSCs have built-in UV lights to sterilize the interior surfaces of the cabinet before and after use.
Access Ports: BSCs often have access ports for the passage of materials and equipment into and out of the cabinet without compromising the containment.
