LabTech Midwest's Staff

The NSF Biosafety Cabinetry Program was initiated over 25 years ago at the request of the regulatory community, including the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), National Institute of Health (NIH), and the National Cancer Institute (NCI). The first phase of the program was the development of NSF/ANSI Standard 49 for the evaluation of Class II laminar flow biological safety cabinets. The standard was completed in 1976.

The second step was the implementation of a testing and certification program to that standard, titled the Biosafety Cabinetry Certification Program.

The third and final stage was completed in 1993, titled the Biosafety Cabinet Field Certifier Accreditation Program. We are pleased to announce that our Certification Team now includes NSF Qualified Personnel.
