  • Class II cabinets used with cytotoxic drugs

    An increasing number of Class II BSCS are used in animal studies and a significant number of these applications involve the use of cytotoxic drugs.Use of cytotoxic drugs in Class II BSCs exposes service personnel to permanently-contaminated surfaces. Notwithstanding that the volumes of drugs used in this work are relatively low compared to a hospital pharmacy; the potential exists for cabinet service personnel to be exposed to residue of drug compounds. This suggests the need to review criteria for selection of cabinets to protect all personnel - regardless of whether the application is in a in a research laboratory or a pharmacy.

Gelaire is a specialised supplier of high-technology biological safety cabinets, laminar airflow cabinets, precision air samplers and cleanroom test equipment.
