Laboratories have to mitigate a wide range of hazards, using engineered control systems to improve poor air quality among them. It is very important to remove the things that cause poor lab air quality, like viruses, allergens, bacteria, and environmental pollution from indoor air. Improving the lab air quality can provide important benefits to research and reduce or eliminate costly downtime for a lab. The COVID-19 pandemic has further demonstrated the need for labs to improve and monitor Indoor Air Quality.  Modern filtration technology can be used with existing systems to drive potentially pathogenic particles out of the breathing zone, protecting the people, products, and experiments from contaminated air. Modern molecular air filtration technology can also improve the lab’s energy consumption, leading to lower energy costs and less impact upon the environment. These improvements can help reduce both capital and operating expenses for the lab. Understand how choosing the right filter will avoid any unintended air issues for the lab, allowing research and work to proceed. 

 Key learning objectives: 

1.            How to improve typical engineered controlled systems 

2.            A review of crucial safety standards

3.            How to incorporate modern filtration technology into new and existing buildings

4.            Analyze the energy impacts of today’s acceptable technologies

5.            How to design a flexible lab that helps reduce CapEx and OppEx

6.            Protection outside of the lab as we prepare for the return to in office settings
