Safety Cabinet Technology
November 6-7, 2017 | Sanford, ME
Our signature course continuously updated and improved since 1989.
This two-day course provides a comprehensive overview of Biological Safety Cabinets (BSCs) through lectures, demonstrations, and hands-on laboratory workshops. The course provides numerous opportunities for hands-on learning. Engaging class discussions allow participants learn from each other. The guided tour of a BSC manufacturing facility provides a unique opportunity to understand the “nuts and bolts” of BSCs.
