After receiving the above information, CEPro will contact you to schedule an appointment.
All BSCs to be certified must have all items removed and the cabinet must be properly decontaminated:
  • Use a freshly prepared solution of 10% bleach followed by an additional wipe down with 70% ethanol or water.
  • If equipment is used in the BSC, the cabinet should be certified with that equipment in place; please discuss this with the CEPro technician.
  • All equipment must be surface decontaminated.
