The Global Biological Safety Cabinet Market Size is expected to reach USD 331.92 Million by 2032, at a CAGR of 7.4% during the forecast period 2022 to 2032.


Market Overview

A Biological Safety Cabinet (BSC) is a vital piece of laboratory equipment designed to provide a controlled environment for handling hazardous microorganisms. Primarily used in microbiology, biomedical, and pharmaceutical research, a BSC ensures operator protection, and sample integrity, and prevents cross-contamination. The cabinet operates under negative pressure, drawing air in through a HEPA filter to remove contaminants, and then safely venting it outside. There are three main types of BSCs—Class I, Class II, and Class III—each offering varying levels of protection for personnel and the environment. Class II BSCs are the most commonly used, featuring a glass front and providing both personnel and product protection, making them crucial tools in promoting safe and effective work with infectious agents.
