The activities carried out within a microbiology laboratory originate risks of different types, especially biological, that affect the health of its workers, visitors and the community. Biological contamination is defined as the invasion of a specific area by microorganisms or undesirable substances, which results from the absence of protection against the reception of contaminated material, its treatment in the laboratory and direct or indirect manipulation.
To avoid any danger within a laboratory it is necessary to individualize self-protection, the identification of hazards and risk assessment, the adoption of appropriate containment measures and the use of scrupulous microbiological techniques allow to make the laboratory a safe place, as they demonstrate the statistics of accidents or infections contracted in the laboratory.
All the biological safety cabinets use high efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filters in their exhaust or supply systems. These filtered cabinets are primarily designed to protect against exposure to particulates, like the biological agents used in the cabinet.
Cabin Microbiological are not the exception, which is why Kalstein promotes safety in the use of their equipment, through technology and the support of professionals and specialists in the field.
Be safe whit Kalstein.
