Checking the Paper Catch in a Biosafety Cabinet

This video guide demonstrates how to check the paper catch in a biosafety cabinet. The paper catch is a crucial component that captures large debris, such as discarded pipette wrappers, protecting the motor from potential damage or disruptive noise. The video walks through lifting the window sash, removing work surface thumb screws, lifting the work surface, and using the prop rod. It then shows the location of the paper catch. Regularly maintaining this feature prevents debris from interfering with the motor. By following these steps, lab technicians can ensure their biosafety cabinets' longevity and optimal performance.
