  1. The role of containment systems in the safe working environment.

    Article - En anglais

    Many laboratories and production processes involve potentially pathogenic organisms or toxic chemicals that need to be handled in containment systems that provide a measurable level of operator protection.

    Biological sagety cabinets and fume cupboards are examples of containment equipment which can reduce operator exposure to such agents.

    Measurement of operator protection is vital in validating containment equipment, particularly in the contect of current standardisation initiatves and legilation within the EU.
