||Specifying the correct biological safety cabinet
||Aug. 1991, Vol.33, No.8, p.31-34. Illus. 3 ref.
||Laboratories must now be designed to handle both chemical fume hoods and biological safety cabinets (BSCs). These devices provide different types of containment, therefore they cannot be substituted for each other. The article discusses the mechanical requirements of various categories of BSCs. Design issues include: physical dimensions; power requirements; location of the BSC in the laboratory; adjacency of peripheral equipment. Strategies for biohazard protection and chemical and radioisotopic hazard protection are outlined.
