Heating And Cooling A Laboratory: Important Considerations For Equipment And Design
ASHRAE Standard 55-2004 determines the temperature, humidity and airflow which the average worker is comfortable; and though people in many industries have the luxury of dressing for the seasons, laboratory workers are usually burdened with an extra layer or two of protective garb. So, room atmosphere considerations also need to take into account that many laboratories have their own requirements as to temperature, humidity and airflow (ventilation). All of this adds up to a laboratory having very strict conditions of the facility’s internal air quality. By Brian Garrett, LEED Green Associate, Product Specialist, Labconco Corporation
WHITE PAPERS & CASE STUDIES
Fluid Bed System Triples Batch Sizes for Laboratorios Normon while Reducing Costs
With the aim of reducing costs, Normon planned to significantly increase its batch sizes for certain products. The manufacturer needed to pay close attention to the high quality and safety standards and economic aspects, as well as flexible production sizes and times.
Precise Filling and Inspection Equipment Fighting Against Diabetes Mellitus
Diabetes mellitus is the first non-infectious disease that has taken on the magnitude of a pandemic. For diabetes patients, the independent administration of insulin is now a lot easier. Due to their shape, the pens can not only be transported more conveniently, they can also be applied “en route” without attracting attention.
Rouge & Biofilm: Compounding Cleaning Challenges
Rouge may facilitate the development of more tenacious biofilms. Both rouge and biofilm represent cleaning and decontamination challenges to manufacturers. By Michael Gietl and Paul Lopolito

Be In Control Of Product Quality – Do Not Just Rely, But Understand
Maik W. Jornitz, President, G-CON Manufacturing LLC
Past experiences have shown that too often product quality is based on sole reliance of vendor certifications, statements and promises. To diminish such reliance new technologies started to be implemented, like process analytical technologies (PAT), process controls, automation etc. often once again overexerted as the solution to all problems. Activities that supposedly result in higher product quality due to better process controls. Maik W. Jornitz, Chief Operating Officer, G-CON Manufacturing LLC
How To Eliminate Heat Effect In Your Fume Hoods
Chemical procedures commonly require the introduction of heat. This is typically in the form of a hot plate or open flame. While the best place to perform these types of chemical procedures is inside a chemical fume hood, most people are unaware of heat’s effect on the airflow through the fume hood, and the potential impact on containment.
