Biosafety Cabinetry Certification: NSF/ANSI 49
NSF tests and certifies biosafety cabinetry to the standard NSF/ANSI 49, which outlines basic requirements for design, construction and performance.
Certifying to this standard provides personnel, product and environmental protection and ensures the reliable operation, durability and safety of your cabinetry.
NSF/ANSI 49 also includes detailed test procedures and informational annexes, including recommendations for installation, field certification tests and decontamination procedures.
With more than 40 years of commitment and service to the biosafety cabinet community, NSF’s team of regulatory experts offers extensive knowledge and support throughout the certification process.
Testing or certifying your products with NSF gives customers peace of mind by demonstrating that your product meets the highest design, construction and safety requirements. All certified biosafety cabinetry receives the NSF mark and is listed on NSF’s website which is updated daily.
