According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled " Biological safety cabinet Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2021-2026," the global biological safety cabinet market size reached US$ 188 Million in 2020. A biological safety cabinet (BSC), or microbiological safety cabinet, is an enclosed, ventilated laboratory workspace designed to protect the surrounding environment and personnel from pathogenic microorganisms. It comprises high-efficiency particulate absorbing (HEPA) filtration systems that decontaminate the air flowing out of the cabinet. Depending on the level of product protection, biosafety cabinets are classified into I, II and III classes. Amongst these, class I and II cabinets are primarily used for the safe manipulation of moderate- and high-risk microorganisms. On the other hand, class III BSCs are ideal for working with hazardous agents with biosafety levels 3 and 4. These workspaces can be customized according to the user preference to obtain optimum control over quality and minimize contamination risks.
We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.
