Biotechnological safety

When working with (potentially) hazardous microorganisms or highly-active substances with toxic potential (e.g. cytostatic drugs), it is essential to protect people and products. Safety cabinets and laboratory isolators are often used for this purpose. TÜV NORD CERT supports manufacturers and users with product testing and training for establishing and maintaining recognised high safety levels.
