Enclosures protect users during nanoparticle manipulation.
January 26, 2010 -
Featuring all-stainless steel interior and NanoSafe Tested(TM) validation, XPert® Nano(TM) Enclosures keep hazardous powders and particulates contained during procedures such as nanoparticle manipulation and dry powder chemical handling. It draws room air into front of enclosure, sweeping cabinet interior, and pulls air to back through baffle. Air is cleansed through 99.999% bag-in/bag-out ULPA filter before returning to laboratory. Optional built-in ionizer is available.

NEW XPert® Nano(TM) Enclosures Protect Users During Nanoparticle Manipulation and Dry Powder Chemical Handling
New XPert Nano Enclosures provide user protection by keeping hazardous powders and particulates contained during procedures such as nanoparticle manipulation and dry powder chemical handling. The patented containment enhancing design features maintain user protection by drawing room air into the front of the enclosure, sweeping the cabinet interior, pulling the air to the back through the patented baffle, and filtering the air through a 99.999% bag-in/bag-out ULPA filter before returning the clean air to the laboratory. The all stainless steel interior (sides, work surface, removable baffle and removable airfoil) is designed for easy wipe down and cleaning procedures. An optional built-in ionizer neutralizes static charge on interior surfaces by emitting ions into the airstream, which helps reduce weighing errors and attraction of particles to the enclosure surfaces.
The XPert Nano was subjected to a state-of-the-art nanoaerosol containment challenge and the containment under those test conditions have been independently verified by NanoSafe, Inc. The XPert Nano is the first commercially available enclosure to receive the NanoSafe Tested(TM) validation mark and Labconco is the first company to voluntarily list test results on the NanoSafe Tested Register(TM).
