1. National Science Foundation (NSF)

Congress itself created the National Science Foundation (NSF) to “promote the progress of science.” The NSF is a federal agency that works to advance many different scientific fields. Their authority ranges from biology to geology, even zoology. They maintain a close eye on research around the country. Ultimately, they supervise each field to keep track of progress and innovation.

SEPS is an NSF-accredited biosafety cabinet certifier. Therefore, we’ve (in essence) been confirmed as a leading provider of BSC certification. The NSF endorsement validates SEPS as reliable, competent certification specialists. We’re proud of their endorsement and work on a daily basis to ensure we remain worthy of it.

2. Controlled Environment Testing Association (CETA)

The Controlled Environment Testing Association (CETA) has a firm commitment to promoting quality assurance. Specifically, they strive to promote it within the controlled environment testing industry.


Ultimately, their mission is to elevate standards and promote high quality. Additionally, they aim to share data and work with different agencies to benefit this industry. Also, they actively provide continuing education. They do this by distributing technical journals, papers and other publications.

Undoubtedly, the CETA endorsement confirms SEPS as a leader within the controlled environment field. Furthermore, it establishes SEPS as a reliable provider of services for equipment like cleanrooms, fume hoods, bio-safety cabinets and any other type of equipment that needs certification.


3. National Laboratory Repair Association (NLRA)

Like the CETA, the National Laboratory Repair Association (NLRA) works to elevate overall quality and standards. As per their website, the NLRA is a group of independent service groups who offer quality service and support programs for lab equipment. Ultimately, their purpose is to provide consumers with a source for finding reputable service organizations they can put their trust in.

Above all, we want to do the job right. Membership with the NLRA is an acknowledgement of our hard work and commitment to excellence.


4. International Society for Biological & Environmental Repositories (ISBER)

ISBER is similar to the CETA in several ways. First and foremost, they’re passionate about promoting quality through education. Also, their key elements involve creating training opportunities and acknowledging innovation. In addition, ISBER focuses on bio-banking. This field involves manufacturing and maintaining repositories for biological samples. Obviously, this is an area we’re experts on.
