Stringent regulatory requirements govern the operation of biosafety labs and are based on a four-tiered risk classification system ranging from no or low individual and community risk, to high individual and community risk (BSL 1 up to BSL 4). Containment filtration systems are essential to ensuring the safety of biosafety lab personnel, the community, and the environment.
The field of biotechnology encompasses the harnessing of cellular and biomolecular processes to develop technologies and products that improve lives through advancements in areas such as medicine, agriculture, fuel generation, and water conservation. Biotechnology research and development is performed by universities, hospitals, pharmaceutical companies, research facilities, and government and military agencies.
AAF specialises in the design, manufacturing, and testing of complete, custom containment filtration systems incorporating HEPA filters with maximum filtration efficiency for a virtually particulate-free lab environment to prevent product contamination. The system also filters and contains harmful microbes, eliminating them from the exhausted air.
AAF’s leading expertise in critical applications and single-source, total system approach ensure compliance with stringent regulatory requirements for biosafety labs and provide fail-safe protection from the significant potential dangers involved in biotechnology research and development.
