Medical Equipment needs to be durable and precise to ensure accurate results and flawless functioning.  Therefore, timely maintenance and repairs for your lab equipment is necessary if you want it to function smoothly.   Medical lab devices are subject to wear and tear because of frequent use.  The longevity of laboratory equipment relies on proper care and ongoing maintenance. 

Cleaning a biosafety cabinet is an important function in terms of both containment and sterility. Aseptic technique and daily decontamination will eliminate the majority of contaminants.  In addition, periodic and thorough decontamination routines is recommended by the manufacturer and is a good laboratory practice to reduce wear on the equipment and provide greater safety to you, your samples, and the environment.
