Biological Safety Cabinets are divided into class I (BSL-1), class II (BSL-2), and class III (BSL-3) biosafety cabinets. BSL-2 class biological safety cabinets are further divided into type A and type B. Among these categories, there is a product designed for special scenarios—that is, the Cytotoxic Safety Cabinet.

1. Definition of Cytotoxic Safety Cabinet

Cytotoxic Safety Cabinets (Biosafety Cabinets For Handling Cytotoxic Substances) belong to Class II Type A2  biological safety cabinets, which are negative pressure filter fume hoods designed to prevent operators and the environment from being exposed to bioaerosols generated during the experiment.

2. Applicable Standards for Cytotoxic Safety Cabinets

Compared with ordinary Class II Type A2 Biological Safety Cabinet, the Cytotoxic Safety Cabinet is suitable for operations with biological risk levels of 1, 2, and 3 as defined by the American National Biosafety Cabinet Standard NSF/ANSI49: 2012 standard, the European Union Biosafety Cabinet Standard EN12469: 2000 standard and the Chinese Pharmaceutical Industry Biosafety Cabinet Standard YY0569-2011 standard. Meanwhile, it also meets the DIN12980 standard for the Cytotoxic Safety Cabinet Standard in Germany.

3. The Role of Cytotoxic Safety Cabinets

Cytotoxic Safety Cabinets can be used in biological laboratories, biopharmaceuticals, and other life science industries. They have good effects on improving process conditions and protecting the health of operators. Cytotoxic Safety Cabinets are used to operate and prepare cytotoxic reagents, highly active substance reagents, and other Carcinogenic, Mutagenic and Reprotoxic (CMR) Substances, which can provide greater cleanliness and safety in the operating work area.

4. Filtration Efficiency of Cytotoxic Safety Cabinets

Compared with ordinary biological safety cabinets, cytotoxic safety cabinets have an additional defense line in structure - a pre-high efficiency air filter (HEPA), which has an effective rate of removing particles with a particle size of 0.3 μm above 99.999%, and the removal efficiency of particles size ≥ 0.3μm is higher, and the air supply and exhaust air filters are standard equipped with ultra-high efficiency filters (ULPA) with a filtration efficiency of 99.9995% @0.12μm or much more.
