How It Works: High Containment At Low CostSource: Labconco Corporation
Today, many laboratories need a small enclosure to establish a clean room environment for high hazard containment. Contamination from environmental exposure can change reaction results and physical properties.
Applications involving costly ultra-pure chemicals or nanoparticulates are examples. In addition, many of these chemicals and new compounds have unknown toxicology. Researchers must take appropriate measures to protect their results, as well as themselves and the laboratory environment. However, few labs have the resources to dedicate an entire room for these ultra-clean applications.
The Precise™ HEPA-Filtered Glove Box addresses this need by providing ISO Class 3 clean room conditions in an affordable, versatile, and efficient containment device. Its shell of rotationally molded medium density polyethylene is chemical resistant, strong, and lightweight.
Particulate performance tests confirm the HEPA-Filtered Glove Box’s ability to quickly create and maintain clean room conditions during positive and negative pressure operations.
