TransLogic Pneumatic Tube Systems from Swisslog Healthcare

TransLogic pneumatic tube systems (PTS) from Swisslog Healthcare can enable lab professionals to spend their time operating at the top of their licensing scope instead of transporting samples. The system transports specimens to the lab quickly and reliably, allowing for substantial chain-of-custody control through the fully integrated technology. Sample batching can create bottlenecks that negatively affect turnaround times leading to further delays, so the Xpress technology of TransLogic PTS is designed to help improve the speed and efficiency of lab workflow, leading to faster resulting and time-to-treat.

Purair from Air Science USA

Air Science Purair ductless fume hoods combine high energy efficiency with low environmental impact. Ductless technology reduces the expense of HVAC reconditioning as filtered air is safely recirculated into the laboratory. The ductless fume hoods can be installed anywhere without the added infrastructure expense of ductwork. Available in seven standard sizes, combined with the ability to modify models based on facility needs, the system is designed for use in existing laboratories and new builds.

Purair Advanced models are available in either metal or polypropylene construction and feature large internal dimensions that are ideal for high-volume applications. The hoods are designed to protect the user and the environment from hazardous vapors generated on the work surface. When combined with the optional HEPA/ULPA safety filter, they also protect from particulates.

Purifier Logic+ 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.

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. 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.
