Planning a lab that meets today’s requirements for sustainability is a top demand for lab planners and architects. The U.S. Green Building Council certified its first LEED Building in 2002 and since then the movement to create sustainable buildings has put pressure on architects to become experts in environmental efficiency.
Incubator contamination is inherently a potential for all incubator manufacturers. Typical laboratories have thousands of airborne contaminants that may enter a tissue cell culture incubator during a door opening, and enter the perfect growth environment to survive and reproduce.
Micromeritics 3Flex Surface Characterization Analyzer is a fully automated, three-station instrument capable of high-performance physisorption, mesopore, micropore, and chemisorption analyses with superior accuracy, resolution, and data reduction.
A Biocontainment Level-4 laboratory is designed to work with microorganisms such as Ebola, Marburg, and Congo-Crimean hemorrhagic fever viruses that pose serious health threats, making entrance to these facilities highly restricted. These labs also depend on a reliable source of high purity water for their day-to-day operations.
