NSF certifies the design, construction and performance of biosafety cabinets to NSF/ANSI 49 and provides biosafety cabinet field certifier accreditation.

Established in the 1970s at the request of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, the National Institutes of Health and the National Cancer Institute, our program addresses health and safety concerns of working with potential pathogens and ensures a microbe-free environment.
