Biosafety Cabinetry

Scientist in a laboratory testing a sample in a petri dish

We certify the design, construction and performance of biosafety cabinets to NSF/ANSI 49 and provide biosafety cabinet field certifier accreditation.

NSF's biosafety cabinetry program was initiated in the 1970s at the request of the regulatory community, including the Centers for Disease Control, the National Institutes of Health and the National Cancer Institute.
