Can the HEPA/UV Module be used for work with pathogens?

The Opentrons Flex HEPA/UV Module is not a biosafety cabinet, nor does it protect the user. The module is used to maintain a sterile working environment inside the Flex.

The HEPA/UV Module should never be used for pathogens. It should not be used for situations where there are volatiles, or any potentially hazardous aerosolized materials.
