The Ai biosafety cabinet, also called a biological safety cabinet or microbiological safety cabinet—is an enclosed, ventilated laboratory workspace for safely working with materials contaminated with (or potentially contaminated with) pathogens requiring a defined biosafety level.

The primary purpose of a biosafety cabinet is to serve as a means to protect the laboratory worker and the surrounding environment from pathogens. All exhaust air is HEPA-filtered as it exits the biosafety cabinet, removing harmful bacteria and viruses. This is in contrast to a laminar flow clean bench, which blows unfiltered exhaust air towards the user and is not safe for work with pathogenic agents. Neither are most biosafety cabinets safe for use as fume hoods. Likewise, a fume hood fails to provide the environmental protection that HEPA filtration in a BSC would provide. However, most classes of biosafety cabinets have a secondary purpose to maintain the sterility of samples inside.

Class II cabinets provide protection of the samples and the environment since recirculated air is also HEPA-filtered. There are five types: Type A1 (formerly A), Type A2 (formerly A/B3), Type B1, Type B2 and Type C1. Each type's requirements are defined by NSF International Standard 49, which in 2002 reclassified A/B3 cabinets (classified under the latter type if connected to an exhaust duct) as Type A2, and added the Type C1 in the 2016 standard. About 90% of all biosafety cabinets installed are Type A2 cabinets.

Ai Class II Type A2 biosafety cabinet features:

  • NSF certified
  • Great for COVID-19 specimen handling
  • Motroized front glass viewing window
  • Dual HEPA filters
  • Large LCD display
  • Filter life indicator
  • Easy-to-clean stainless steel chamber
  • Auto start and stop function (eg. UV lights)
  • Automatic flow speed adjustment
