Class II, Type A2 Biosafety Cabinet Placement
Our infographic clearly explains correctly positioning a Class II, Type A2 Biosafety Cabinet within your laboratory or pharmacy. The information included addresses the significance of placement away from disruptive air currents, which can interfere with exhaust and inflow air, creating unsafe working conditions. The infographic highlights the particular vulnerability of the exhaust filter outflow area to these air currents, and it emphasizes that currents with excessive velocity can surpass the cabinet's proper inflow speed, thereby disrupting the protective air barrier and risking contamination of the work area. Additionally, the infographic provides guidance on exhaust considerations for cabinets used for work involving minute quantities of non-flammable or explosive volatile toxic chemicals and trace amounts of radionuclides, underlining the necessity of adequately functioning exhaust canopies. This resource is available for download to assist you in optimally installing your Biosafety Cabinet.
