New Style of Safety Workstation Announced
Mar 03 2015
Most laboratories follow ‘good practice’ guidelines and staff are encouraged to use safety hoods for the handling of chemicals and powders that might become airbourne and potentially contaminate the working environment. Occassionally however it may not be convenient or possible to undertake a procedure in a hood. In Bigneat’s continuing quest to supply equipment to improve safety in the laboratory, to provide cost effective, convenient, fume and particle removal for people who need at-the-bench safety, they have announced the launch of ‘Optiflow’.
Optiflow is a small bench-mounted ductless fume cabinet, downflow bench, hood, workstation (whatever you prefer to call it) which protects the user from chemical vapours, fumes or particles depending which type of filtration is chosen. Carbon filtration retains chemical fumes and vapours and HEPA filtration retains dusts and particules.
Optiflow provides unrestricted access for procedures and handlings that are difficult to perform within a standard fume cabinet and because it is a ductless system this compact and portable unit can be installed onto an existing work surface, located where it is most needed.
Robert Monks, Managing Director of Bigneat commented: “I can honestly say that Bigneat now offers the most comprehensive range of safety cabinets and workstations on the market,” he added “every day I am proud to tell people that we design our systems in the UK and manufacture here too.”
Bigneat is an innovator in air system design for ductless recirculatory filtration cabinets and safety enclosures. In recent years it has become the world’s No 1 manufacturer of large ductless enclosures for the containment of laboratory automation and robotics systems. Bigneat meets the requirements of these laboratories at the leading edge of life sciences and pharmaceutical research who demand quality and consistent performance of all systems they use.
