Standards and Certifications

Labconco is committed to maintaining the highest standards and professional certifications attainable in the industry.

Labconco is an ISO 9001 certified company which prides itself on the quality of our people and products. The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) established ISO 9001:2008 as a family of standards that state generic requirements for instituting a company's quality management system. ISO is a network of the national standards institutes of 147 countries, on the basis of one member per country, with headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland. ISO 9000 certification is voluntarily pursued by companies, such as Labconco, desiring to continually improve their quality.

Many of our products carry CE Marking signifying electrical conformity for use in the European Community. The CE mark indicates a product conforms to all safety and other directives/specifications presently required by the Council of European Communities. Present rules require that products meet electrical safety requirements set for laboratory equipment and also pass rigorous electromagnetic emissions testing (interference signals being output by the product) and electromagnetic immunity testing (the product should not respond to outside electromagnetic interference signals).

Labconco products adhere to ETL Testing Laboratories standards. This designation is recognized by OSHA as meeting the same requirements of a Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory (NRTL). For more information on ETL, visit its website at /www.intertek.com.

All Labconco Class II Biological Safety Cabinets are NSF Standard Number 49 compliant. The NSF International is an independent organization that acts as a neutral agency serving the consumer, government and industry in developing solutions for problems pertaining to public health and the environment.

Established in 1976, the NSF Standard Number 49, entitled Class II (Laminar Flow) Biosafety Cabinetry, established minimum materials, design, construction and performance requirements for Class II biohazard cabinets including the quality control tests which the manufacturer must perform on every unit, and the certification tests to be performed in the field. In addition, its policy established requirements for initial testing and periodic retesting of cabinets by the NSF International Laboratory in Ann Arbor, Michigan, and annual unannounced audits of the manufacturer’s facility.

Labconco is proud to be a member of the U.S. Green Building Council.
