Unlike most industries and professions, the very nature of laboratory science is hazardous. Technicians and researchers handle and are in close proximity to substances, agents and materials that are inherently risky. For this reason, great care should be taken in selecting equipment that maximizes safety and reduces the user's risk. This video depicts the Purifier Logic®+ biosafety cabinet, which keeps the researcher safe from agents being used; with emphasis on the evolution of human factors design in biosafety cabinets, developed at Labconco Corporation (Kansas City, MO).
