BSC Certification & Testing

Triumvirate Environmental offers expertise in biological decontamination services and performs NSF/ANSI 49 standard biological safety cabinet testing and certification for all cabinet types. Request a free BSC consultation today with our experts (see form at the bottom of page).

Our standard BSC certification includes:


Air Velocity Testing: Documents and obtains an acceptable airflow and calculated total CFM volume, meeting the manufacturer's specifications.


HEPA Filter Integrity Testing: This documents acceptable performance of no leakage in excess of 0.01% of the upstream challenge concentration.

Group 261

Visualization of Airflow Testing: Uses a smoke pattern assessment to visually identify airflow throughout the cabinet to ensure there are no "dead spots" or areas in an unusual condition.


Additional Testing (As Needed): Particle Count Classification, Viable Environmental Sampling, Sound Level Testing, Florescent Light Testing, Ultra-Violet Light Testing, Electrical Testing, Vibration Testing, and Temperature/Humidity Testing.

BSC Decontamination Services

Biological safety cabinets and fume hoods are essential to research, and preventing contamination is crucial to experiment integrity. In case of contamination, Triumvirate Environmental’s experts are the ones to contact. For decontamination, our team uses chlorine dioxide, a validated and approved solution according to NSF/ANSI Standard 49. Our BSC decontamination:

  •  Is fast and safe (completed in under four hours). We can decontaminate six-plus BSCs daily.

  • Relies on chlorine dioxide. As a "true gas," it doesn't cause condensation problems. Chlorine dioxide gas is validated for BSC decontamination by NSF/ANSI Standard 49.

  • Offers an embedded charcoal gas-scrubbing unit. This allows technicians to remove chlorine dioxide without external venting, leaving no hazardous waste.

  •  Removes all internal and accessible components. This includes any debris, and we wipe the unit with a disinfectant solution.

  • Exceeds what other providers offer. Besides thorough decontamination, our specialists also will identify and understand the materials inside the BSC to verify the method's efficacy. 


Schedule Routine Maintenance and Repair

Prevent future biological safety cabinet contamination by being proactive. Triumvirate provides routine decontamination, maintenance, repairs, and filter change outs for all BSC types. Contact our team to schedule a routine that includes:
