Biological Safety Cabinet Testing and Certification

Biological safety cabinets are sophisticated, crucial pieces of equipment that require comprehensive safety testing, certification and maintenance, and TSS has more NSF/ANSI 49 certified technicians than any other certification agency nationally. TSS’ certification procedures are developed and executed in accordance with NSF/ANSI 49, OSHA, NIH/CDC and manufacturer's specifications. We’ll conduct comprehensive function and safety checks including documenting inflow velocity, downflow velocity, HEPA filter integrity testing, and smoke pattern testing to visually verify airflow patterns.

Besides routine certification requirements, we can also conduct cGMP compliant validation, perform site installation testing and alarm calibration. In addition to these core tests of optimal functionality, we can provide optional services and checks, such as non-viable particle counting, electrical safety testing, fluorescent light testing, vibration, sound and pressure decay testing, etc. — ensuring operator safety and cGMP compliance are our ultimate goals with everything we do.
