This article was published last June 2011 in Lab Manager Magazine as part of the evolution series featured monthly. This month’s topic is biological safety cabinets.
The graphical timeline-feature shows the evolution of biological safety cabinets that were developed since the beginning of the 1900’s after a German scientist discovered that germs could float in the air by building a bio-containment cabinet. The article then proceeded to discuss the utilization of advanced technology that paved the way for compact biological safety cabinets used in laboratories today. This article also mentions possible innovations and developments of biological safety cabinets in the future.
This editorial article was made possible through a collaborative effort by the team at SCI Global Services Inc. and was authored by our President, John Buie.
