Containment cabinets allow communication


Nineteen powder weighing cabinets manufactured by Bigneat Containment Technology are being used by Specs, a leading provider of compound management services and supplier of screening compounds and building blocks to the life science industry. Specs is using the cabinets to carry out compound management projects, comprising analysis and processing of historical compound collections of its customers. These services are offered worldwide and consequently the cabinets have been set up at the Specs' weighing facilities in the Netherlands and the US, where the transparent design enables excellent communication between laboratory staff. Airflow into the cabinet is smoothed by aerofoil technology to ensure a steady balance even at the levels of 1 x 10-6g, and an electronic low-flow alarm warns of HEPA filter blockage.
