Biological safety cabinets are necessary when working with biohazardous materials, or materials which may present aerosolized or vapor hazards. A biological safety cabinet (BSC) provides protection for biological samples, as well as for personnel and the work environment. They are used for a variety of applications in the life sciences as well as pharmaceutical, clinical, and industrial laboratories.

The Elements of Clean Room HVAC Systems

Technicians working in the pharmaceutical production lineSome industries deal with products that have to be developed in a clean room environment. This applies to companies that deal with biotechnology, pharmaceuticals and even microelectronics. These industries often require specialized equipment, such as a pharmaceutical grade refrigerator for the development of drugs, or a specialized HVAC system. When investing in a clean room design, keep in mind that you want to work with someone who has experience with products similar to yours. The slightest change in temperature, or air pressure, could ruin the development of product, which can be avoided with the proper clean room design.

In every environment, millions of factors can jeopardize sensitive testing and manufacturing. For the integrity of your products and services, keeping your cleanrooms and biological safety cabinets up to international regulatory standards is critical. No matter what level of certifications or number of tests you need to have done on your facilities, cleanroom management can provide you with help for each step of the process.

Types of Biosafety Cabinets

Whether it be in education or chemical manufacturing, biosafety cabinets are crucial to any workspace dealing with the study and handling of chemicals. Used primarily to protect from noxious or radioactive materials, biosafety cabinets serve as a safe space that both shelters a substance and promotes the observation of it. Standard biosafety cabinet classification contains the three main types of cabinet classes. These variations in biological safety technology contain similar designs (centered around a clean room HEPA filter) but vary among three general specifications: risk, inlet velocity, and protection capabilities.

Designing a Cleanroom HVAC System

Cleanroom 1Cleanrooms typically have very specific demands and requirements. Obviously, that means there's no such thing as a "one-size fits all" approach to designing and installing an HVAC system for a cleanroom. However, even though the details will vary, there are some considerations to always keep in mind.

What Are Pharmaceutical Grade Refrigerators?

medicineHave you ever wondered what makes pharmaceutical grade refrigerators special? For starters, they fulfill the unique needs of their research or medical facility. A facility may need to safely store biological samples at a particular temperature to guarantee that they don't compromise a study. A medical style clinic might just need a handy place to store ice. Either way, the refrigerator you choose is paramount to the needs of the facility. Here are some things to think about for understanding how pharmaceutical grade refrigerators are best used.

The Advantages of Biological Safety Cabinet Analysis

They come in three classes depending on what type of protection you need to provide for these materials and for the world around them. Whatever class you have, biosafety cabinet testing is important before initial use, and it should also be done with some regularity throughout the year to ensure continued quality performance.

Understanding Biological Safety Cabinets before Installation

Biosafety is the maintenance of safe conditions in biological research to prevent harm. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) established a set of biocontainment precautions to isolate dangerous biological agents. Biosafety Levels 1 through 4 provide laboratory practices and techniques to safeguard against harmful incidents. Failure to follow practices can lead to increased risk of exposure to biohazards or pathogens.

ISO Standards for Clean Room Certification

Written by ATSC230@545404 on . Posted in WordPress

The International Standards Organization (ISO) is responsible for the latest classifications for clean room environments. These global standards, which have more classes than previous United States systems, are carefully judged, since the slightest error can often affect the sensitive materials that must stay in them. Because of this, you can only get cleanroom certification if you meet the standards in several categories. Here we have a brief explanation of the major categories in this process so that you can learn a bit about the subject before diving into your own classification process.

1611770_Atlantic Technical Systems_Importance of Biological Safety Cabinet Certification_DLX1bBiological safety cabinets, or BSCs, are used by laboratories for the research of various biohazard agents. They’re designed to protect you, your laboratory, and your surrounding environment from harmful exposure to these biological agents. BSC certification refers to the maintenance and condition of the cabinet instead of a guarantee that the cabinet will work as expected. A certified BSC is tested periodically to make sure that it’s providing you with a safe work environment. Here are some important reasons why certification is important.
