Energy-Efficient Biological Safety Cabinet Reduces Energy Costs While Ensuring Safety
17 November 2015
As the primary containment devices within laboratories, biological safety cabinets (BSCs) are critical to protect personnel, product and environment from exposure to biohazards and cross-contamination during routine daily procedures. Because of this vital role, the biological safety cabinet is one of the most essential and highly used pieces of equipment within a laboratory. Biological safety cabinets have been designed to run continuously to maintain aseptic conditions in the workspace. Additionally, BSCs are often operated continuously to help control dust and other airborne particulates. This application note demonstrates the energy efficiency of a BSC from The Baker Company.
