The standard BSC hood certification includes air velocity testing to document and obtain an acceptable airflow and calculated total CFM volume, meeting the manufacturer’s specifications. The HEPA filter integrity test is also performed to document acceptable performance of no leakage in excess of .01% of the upstream challenge concentration.
Additional testing includes: airflow smoke test, sound level testing, florescent light testing, ultra-violet light testing, electrical testing, vibration testing, cabinet leak testing, particle count classification and temperature testing. Decontamination's are also performed as requested or required for internal maintenance.
All reporting is printed out electronically on-site via computer, and a compliance certificate is issued and applied to the unit denoting test date, status, and re-certification due date.
The national standard used by Air Safe, LLC. to certify the hood's performance is the NSF 49 document on Class II (Laminar Flow) Bio-hazard Cabinetry, as well as the manufacturer's guidelines. Certifications are required in order to maintain compliance by a number of governing agencies such as the FDA, USP, Joint Commission Agency as well as many others.
