Powder weighing in a fume cupboard
Opti-Pharma Weigh Station overcoming problems associated with weighing out toxic powders in the laboratory by filtering contaminated air away from the operator without disrupting sensitive balances
Weighing out toxic powders in a protective environment is often problematic for laboratory personnel. If the balance activity is undertaken within a fume cupboard, the results are often disrupted by the cabinet airflow patterns. Opti-Pharma UK says it has produced a cost effective solution to this issue with its 'Airbox Weigh Station'. This is designed to filter contaminated air away from the operator, without disrupting sensitive balance activities. These units are very competitively priced and can be custom built to the clients specific requirement, says the company.
