BSC Certificate & Testing

We offer biological decontamination services—and perform NSF/ANSI 49 standard BSC testing and certification for all cabinet types. Request a free BSC consultation with our experts today.

Our standard BSC certification includes:


Air Velocity Testing: This documents and obtains an acceptable airflow and calculated total cubic feet per minute (CFM) volume, meeting manufacturer specifications.


HEPA Filter Integrity Testing: Performed to ensure no leakage in excess of 0.01% of the upstream challenge concentration, as well as to document acceptable performance.

Group 261

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


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

BSCs, fume hoods, and similar appliances are essential to research—and contamination prevention is essential to support experiment integrity and production excellence. Proactive BSC maintenance prevents contamination, malfunctions, or operational disruptions. That's why we provide routine decontamination, maintenance, repairs, and filter replacements for all BSC types. We summarize our decontamination approach below:

  •  It’s fast and safe (completed in 3-4 hours) so we can decontaminate six or more BSCs in one day.

  • It relies on chlorine dioxide, a "true gas," preventing condensation problems. Chlorine dioxide gas is NSF/ANSI Standard 49 validated for BSC decontamination.

  • Our embedded charcoal gas-scrubbing unit enables technicians to remove chlorine dioxide without external venting, which prevents the formation of hazardous waste residue. 

  •  Our team members remove all internal and accessible components, as well as any debris, and perform disinfectant solution cleaning.

  • Our service capabilities exceed those of most of our competitors. For instance, during decontamination, our specialists identify and analyze the materials that the BSCs they are cleansing process. This way, they can apply the most effective decontamination processes.

Routine Maintenance
