Tecomak has been offering safety cabinet services, including testing, for 14 years and has considerable experience of repairing all makes of cabinet. We are the only service company that provides a range of decontamination and repair services using BOHS P601 qualified engineers.

Microbiological safety cabinets are widely used in a variety of healthcare settings such as pathology departments and research laboratories. Often the samples being worked on involve material which could pose a threat to human health, so it is essential that lab workers are protected from exposure. It is also vital that extracted air is correctly filtered and vented so that it cannot become a hazard for people outside the facility. Microbiology safety cabinets are the primary line of defence for lab workers and the wider public, so it is imperative that regular safety cabinet testing is carried out to ensure ongoing levels of protection. Regular scheduled maintenance (ideally carried out at the same time as testing) is also important to prevent breakdowns and minimise facility downtime.
