When it comes to biological safety cabinets, there are two main classifications, and you won’t want to mix them up lest you create a hazardous situation. If you’re not sure about your cabinets, you can always hire a professional to do biosafety cabinet testing. In the meantime, these are the main points of difference between.
A specialized manufacturing environment where the concentration of airborne particles is controlled to specified limits is known as a clean room. They are used in industries where small particles can adversely affect the manufacturing process, such as the electronics, pharmaceutical, biopharmaceutical, and medical device industries. These special constructions are planned and built following strict protocols and methods to prevent contaminants from entering the clean room environment.
You may be buying a biological safety hood for the first time, or you may be wondering if you should replace the one you already own. Ideally, you should have your equipment inspected annually to check for corrosion and rust, both of which can occur either inside or outside the cabinet. Sometimes, parts will break down and need to be replaced. Unfortunately, there are many reasons why they would need to be entirely replaced, such as parts going obsolete. When that happens, you need to make sure to get the right hood for your needs.
The key to any cleanroom HVAC system is combining environmental controls with contaminant prevention. Your facility is unique in its requirements, but there's a fine line between exceeding profits and saving a multi-year research endeavor. That's why it is so important to partner with Atlantic technical Systems to create the best clean room HVAC system for your facility. These are some things to consider when developing a plan.
