Nanotechnology's Need For Containment

Source: Flow Sciences Inc.

By Jason Frye

As the exploration of analytical-scale and micro-scale applications has increased among organizations and universities, so has the ability to safely weigh, transfer and use nano-materials. Advances within the field of nanotechnology have introduced new materials and products to researchers and end-users in the medical, energy, aeronautics and environmental fields, to name a few. Despite the robustness of the research and development community and their continued dedication to safe workplace practices, there is little regulation governing personnel and environmental exposure risks.

Until such a time that safe handling standards come on line, Flow Sciences’ specialty low-flow containment hoods will help laboratories meet or exceed their own in-house safety benchmarks, which means a cleaner, safer work environment and reduced exposure risk to personnel.
