Shielded Biological Safety Cabinet Class A2


Nuclear Shields designed and manufactures a lead-lined biological safety cabinet type A2 with 5 mm lead shielding to protect personnel from ionizing radiation when working with radiopharmaceuticals. The workspace is shielded with 5 mm lead, but any lead thickness is available upon request. The shielded biosafety cabinet includes a lead lined generator cabinet and a lead lined dose calibrator and waste disposal cabinet. The dose calibrator can be shielded with extra lead shielding rings to minimize background radiation. More information on the shielded biological safety cabinet can be found below.
