User instruction:
    The HEPA filters in the Biosafety Cabinet will gradually accumulate airborne particulate matter from the room and from work performed in the cabinet. The rate of accumulation will depend upon the cleanliness of the room air, operating time and the nature of work being done in the cabinet. The Filter Gauge accurately displays the amount of filter life remaining.
