Biosafety Cabinets & Laminar Flow Benches
The need to protect personnel, product, and the environment from exposure to biohazards and cross contamination during routine procedures has never been more acute. The Baker Company has developed a wide variety of biological safety cabinets designed to meet diverse applications in the life science, clinical, pharmaceutical and industrial laboratory.
Superior Environmental Protection
Because of the critical nature of such laboratory work, Baker products are designed and manufactured to meet specific needs of the workplace, and to operate within a performance envelope which guarantees the widest margin of safety and product protection for the most demanding laboratory conditions.
Baker encourages you to learn as much as possible about the capabilities, limitations and appropriate use of specific biosafety cabinets. The adequacy of any containment cabinet for the user’s personal safety should be confirmed by an industrial hygienist or qualified safety officer.
We invite questions and comments by telephone, from our web site, or during personal visits to our manufacturing facility and research laboratories.
In varying degrees, a laminar flow biological safety cabinet is designed to provide three basic types of protection:
- Personnel protection from harmful agents inside the cabinet.
- Product protection to avoid contamination of the work, experiment, or process.
- Environmental protection from contaminants contained within the cabinet.
How Biological Safety Cabinets Are Classified
Classification is an important consideration in the selection of any biological safety cabinet. Over the years, the scientific community has adopted commonly accepted classification criteria to differentiate containment capabilities and performance attributes. Biological safety cabinets are divided into three classifications. Baker designs and manufactures all of these types of biosafety containment cabinets.
|Class I||1, 2, 3||low to moderate risk biological agents|
|Class II||1, 2, 3||low to moderate risk biological agents|
|Class III||4||high risk biological agents|
