COVID 19 - Lab Grade Seating Cleaning Protocol

In the Spring of 2018, SEFA formed a new Committee, the Laboratory Grade Seating Committee, which is Co-chaired by Ed Metzger of Bio-Fit and Kai Schuler of Interstuhl (BIMOS Division).  The Committee has been actively working to develop a standard and testing protocols to address this essential laboratory equipment.

At present the standard is still in draft form, however the Committee has approved a “SEFA Lab-Grade Seating Cleaning Protocol” which will be included as an Appendix to the Standard when it is ultimately approved.  You can download a copy of this announcement and the cleaning protocol by clicking the link below.
