Biosafety Tip of the Week: Bead Sterilizers and Air Flow in BSC

Biosafety Month 2022

The Tip of The Week

Does your lab have a bead sterilizer in a Biosafety Cabinet (BSC)? Bead sterilizers generate additional heat and can impact the air flow in a BSC. You may need to add this to your biosafety protocol. Please connect with the Office of Biological Safety (OBS) if you have any questions.
