About Us

The Scientific Equipment and Furniture Association (SEFA) is an international not-for-profit trade association whose Executive Members are among the world’s largest manufacturers of laboratory furniture and equipment.  SEFA was formed in 1988 and currently has 165 members located in 25 countries across the globe.  

SEFA's essential purpose is to Promote the use of "LABORATORY GRADE"  furniture, fixtures and related equipment.  We believe the proper furniture and appropriate enclosures add a blanket of safety in the lab environment.  




Great turnout for our presentations in the SEFA Theatre at ARABLAB -- SEFA's Year in Review and the 2023 Lab of the Year Program.  Good to see so many of our members and colleagues at our Networking Reception at The Conrad Hotel in Dubai.  Special Thanks to our event Sponsors, Alliant Insurance and Hamilton Laboratory Solutions.
