A biological safety cabinet also called as Bio Safety Cabinet (BSC). It is an enclosed, ventilated laboratory workspace for safely working with materials contaminated with (or potentially contaminated with) pathogens requiring a defined bio-safety level. Several different types of BSC exist.

Class I

Class I cabinets provide personnel and environmental protection. These BSCs are commonly used to enclose specific equipment or procedures that potentially generate aerosols. BSCs of this class are either ducted (connected to the building exhaust system) or without ducted (recirculation filtered exhaust back into the laboratory).

Class II

Class II cabinets provide both kinds of protection of the samples and of the environment since makeup air is also HEPA-filtered. There are four types: Type A1, A2 and Type B1, B2.

Class III

The Class III cabinet, generally only installed in maximum containment laboratories. It is specifically designed for work with BSL-4 pathogenic agents, providing maximum protection. The enclosure is gas-tight, and all materials enter and leave through a dunk tank or double-door Passbox. Gloves attached to the front prevent direct contact with hazardous materials. These cabinets are sometimes called glove box.
