White Paper: Biosafety cabinet gas decontamination considerations
17 April 2024

Routine surface decontamination of biosafety cabinets (BSCs) is industry best practice before and after work with biological materials, however, there are some instances when a full space decontamination may be necessary. NuAire, Inc. discusses situations when a space decontamination is warranted, what chemical sterilants are available for fumigation of biosafety cabinets, how to prepare for this kind of decontamination, and design features of BSCs that may help facilitate decontamination of the entire BSC using these chemicals.
