Cabinets with different safety classifications. They are designed to protect operator, samples, and environment from various low and moderate risk biological agents using HEPA filter for laminar flow.
1. Some specifications that involve safety and quality assurance are required of all laminar air flow units. Other requirements depend on the laboratory safety cabinet's configuration and use.
2. An airflow monitor, which verifies that the airflow is at the appropriate rate to ensure adequate protection for employees or specimens, is a preferable feature when purchasing a laboratory safety cabinet.
3. Another preferred feature is self-test, an adjustable sash to be placed in a variety of positions while working on the laboratory safety hood.
4. The laboratory safety cabinet work area should be easy to clean and durable, therefore, a stainless steel work area is recommended.
5. The laboratory safety cabinet units should provide alarms to warn users of potential risks due to user error or problems with the hood itself, such as an open sash or inadequate airflow.
6. All laboratory safety hoods require a cabinet light, and for certain applications, a UV light may be desirable.
7. When buying laminar air flow units, the main expenses include the cabinet and for ducted hoods, the remote blower as well as the ductwork and other hardware.
8. Other expenses include the installation costs, which involve installation of the cabinet, the exhaust system, and the remote blower.
9. Laboratory safety cabinet manufacturers advise on-site certification after installation, even though hoods are tested before shipment. This is also necessary when filters are changed, maintenance repairs are performed, or when hoods are used for hazardous or critical applications or workloads.
10. When a technician certifies the laboratory safety cabinet, the high efficiency particulate air filters should also be checked. The frequency of filter change depends on the use and location of the laminar air flow unit and the quality of the room air.
