||Design modifications of a class II biological safety cabinet and user guidelines for enhancing safety
||Jan. 1991, Vol. 52, No.1, p.1-5. Illus. 17 ref.
||Design modifications to permit internal waste collection and to optimise the available work area are described. Improvements, including an internal recessed well for the waste receptacle, relocation of petcocks and electrical duplex, and installation of a new vacuum trap, make operation of the cabinet more efficient and potentially safer. To correct poor work practices, which can compromise the protective features of any biological safety cabinet, it is advised that precise guidelines and training programmes should be followed.
