English term or phrase: BSC pump
I'm translating a text on safety procedures for working in an ML-III laboratory and I just can't find a translation for: 'Check the level of the waste bottles of the BSC pumps'. I assume BSC means 'Biosafety cabinet', but what's the Dutch translation? And what about pumps? I hope there's someone out there who can help me because I'm really stuck this time.

Additional information: It's an E-learning text.
Full sentence: "Check the level of the waste bottles of the BSC pumps, waste buckets, incubator temperatures and CO2 levels, and any other equipment/reagents that you may need for your experiment."

afzuigpomp
Explanation:
Vaak is een afzuigpomp aanwezig in een flowkast. Hiermee kan medium worden afgezogen; de afgezogen vloeistof komt in een opvangvat terecht, vaak met een van tevoren toegevoegd middel om alle levende cellen / virussen te doden.
