Did you know that the biosafety cabinet program at NSF International doesn't just certify products? It's true that NSF uses NSF/ANSI Standard 49 to evaluate class II laminar flow biosafety cabinets, but we also have two different accreditation programs for the skilled technicians and service providers who "field test" or "field certify" biosafety cabinets each year. These field certifiers go into hospitals, research facilities, universities and other microbiological and biomedical laboratories to make sure that biosafety cabinets are operating correctly, year after year.
NSF International is committed to protecting and improving human health, including the health of our clients, representatives and staff. We are taking action to help prevent the spread of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) in NSF operations and activities worldwide.
