The Lab-Bubble can provide many different types of safety or controlled environments
The Lab-Bubble, a new type of bench-mounted containment hood, is now available from Asynt in Isleham, Cambridgeshire in the UK. It can be used to provide many different types of safety or controlled environments simply by using additional components to change the function of the enclosure.
The Lab-Bubble can be used in various configurations for applications including handling of chemicals and powders, weighing, biological sample handling and PCR preparation.
The environment in the Lab-Bubble can be controlled for humidity (20–55% RH) using a dry nitrogen glove box and temperature (15–30°C). The air extraction is provided through a small box section fan filtration system that incorporates a safe change HEPA/carbon combination filter.
The main body of the Lab-Bubble is made from 6mm clear moulded cast acrylic that ensures excellent visibility and is easily cleaned. The base section is durably constructed from chemically resistant, 10mm thick High Density Polyethylene (HDP). The Lab-Bubble can be used as a simple storage unit and also as a demonstration/teaching unit.
