Webinar:  Volatile Chemicals and Class II Type A2 "recirculated BSCs: How much is Safe?

Volatile chemicals, while typically used in a fume hood, may sometimes be used in conjunctionwith biological experiments which often require the use of a biosafety cabinet (BSC).  We have derived a series of equations to calculate the internal concentration, maximum amount allowed safely and the time required for the evacuation of any volatile chemical, shown both by calculation and experimentation. 

USP <800> Impact to Engineering Controls

Biological Safety Cabinets: Innovations in Worker Safety and Material Protection

October 2015: Learn about biosafety cabinet design to maximize personnel and product protection, including the importance of the performance envelope, in this Lab Manager webinar featured Baker's Engineering Test Supervisor Aaron Johnson.

Microbiome, Antibiotics & Human Disease

July 2015: Antibiotics are an essential part of the medical arsenal to treat and cure many infectious diseases. Their overuse, however, is not free of consequences. In this Cell Press webinar, sponsored by Baker Ruskinn, Martin Blaser, Michael Fischbach and Julie Segre discuss the interplay between human disease, antibiotics, and the microbiome, from tracking multiresistant bugs to understanding how antibiotics may be involved in obesity and the ways to mine the human microbiome to discover new drugs.
