Contamination incidents in the lab—and in hospitals—feed new concerns about checks and balances in high-risk environments.
The fear of needles is recognized in medical literature as needle phobia, or trypanophobia. It has also been recognized in the research community recently as an area that needs improvement, with several companies and universities undertaking studies that seemingly portray a "death to needles" attitude.
Ductless fume hoods, also known as carbon-filtered enclosures, are self-contained, filtered laboratory enclosures that remove hazardous fumes, vapors and particles from the laboratory. Unlike traditional fume hoods, installation costs are low and no ductwork is required. Therefore, many people think it is a slam dunk when they first learn of them. Not so fast.
First impressions are always important in a new or renovated building, encouraging architects and interior designers to choose finish materials that support an eye-pleasing aesthetic. However, just as important are the performance features of these materials, particularly in buildings that encompass multiple functions under one roof.
A gravimetric approach to sample preparation increases accuracy and precision while reducing material use and costs.
