Benefits and Risks of Ultraviolet (UV) Light

This white paper provides an overview of the benefits and risks of using ultraviolet (UV) radiation in biological safety cabinets (BSCs). First, the document explains that UV radiation is effective at sterilizing bacteria. Still, there are several objections to its use, including potential health risks to researchers and the fact that it may give researchers a false sense of security. The paper concludes by offering several precautions that should be taken when using UV radiation in a BSC. If you are interested in learning more about the use of UV radiation in BSCs, we invite you to download our white paper for a detailed exploration of this vital topic.
