Types of Bio Safety cabinets
Biosafety Cabinets (BSL Cabinets or BSC Cabinets) are one of the most useful ventilated laboratory workspaces in dealing with risky biological agents. It’s mostly used in clinical and medical research settings where the samples can be contagious and highly risky. To protect the user and the environment, it’s key to make use of a well-ventilated and tested BSL cabinet.
Based on the biological agent that is being tested and the level of protection that is needed, we classify BSL cabinets into several types listed below in this infographic.
|TYPE OF BSC CABINETS||BIOSAFETY LEVEL||PURPOSE|
|Class I||BSL-1, BSL-2, BSL-3||
|Class II||BSL-1, BSL-2 BSL-3||
