Epoxy Worksurfaces and Sinks from Durcon
Durcon’s epoxy worksurfaces and sinks provide a complete system of durable, heat- and chemical-resistant laboratory products creating consistency throughout the laboratory environment. The high-density epoxy worksurfaces are molded as one solid piece of nonporous material, eliminating surface absorption, delamination, and swelling. Created with the goal of ensuring longevity, epoxy worksurfaces are resistant to harsh chemicals, heat, fire, staining, pitting, and marring, and have a Class A fire rating. In addition, they are nonconductive, and the ease of decontamination makes them suitable for radioactive areas. Available in conjunction with these epoxy worksurfaces, Durcon’s Epoxy DropIn sinks are likewise durable and do not require undermount support. With the DropIn sink installation method, the cutout is sealed, eliminating the overhang that can become a collection point for residual chemicals and bacteria.

Purifier Logic+ Class II, Type A2 Biosafety Cabinet from Labconco Corporation
The Labconco Corporation’s Purifier Logic+ class II, type A2 biosafety cabinet is designed for laboratories handling hazardous particles, such as agents that require Biosafety Level 1, 2, or 3 containment. Purifier Logic+ BSCs provide personal, product, and environmental protection, including from COVID-19 samples. The design of all Logic+ BSCs centers around the MyLogic operating system, which communicates status updates on an LCD screen located at eye level within the BSC. Ergonomic design components, such as a sloped sash and an inlet grill armrest, are combined with a quiet, energy efficiency blower to maximize user comfort during extended periods of work. Logic+ BSCs typically recirculate HEPA filtered air directly into the laboratory. However, nuisance odors or light-duty chemicals can be vented into an exhaust system through an optional canopy connection.
