5.8 Biosafety Cabinets/Culture Hoods

Working with volatile radioactive material is not recommended in biosafety cabinets not vented to the outside.  Most biosafety cabinets on campus recirculate HEPA-filtered air back into the room.  Please contact EHS’s Biological Safety Officer at 335-9553 if you need to use radioactive materials in a biological safety cabinet or culture hood.
