BIOLOGICAL SAFETY: Form follows function: Working with, not against, your biosafety cabinet

This webinar first explains the basic functioning of a Class II, Type A2 biosafety cabinet and how it provides protection. The presentation then proceeds to explain how, in light of that knowledge, a cabinet operator should work in the cabinet so as not to interfere with the airflow and other features that provide biocontainment for that operator.
