When To Replace Your Biological Safety Cabinet

Source: NuAire, Inc.

Use of modern day Biological Safety cabinets (BSC’s) began in the early 1970’s with BSC’s that were manufactured to the NIH-03-112C Standard and subsequently the NSF Standard 49. BSC’s manufactured in the 70’s, 80’s and early 90’s have provided over 15 years of service.

Biological Safety Cabinets Have A 15 Year Useable Life
Several considerations should be made of BSC’s in this age group. Will the BSC need extensive service? (i.e. HEPA filter replacement, blower/motor replacement, will the electrical wire harnesses need replacement? etc.). Can an older BSC be commissioned after it has been in storage or purchased as a resale? Will original test reports be available or will the BSC be commissioned to current NSF Standards?
