LABORATORY & RESEARCH

To safeguard against pathogen contamination and prevent harm to specimens, personnel and
expensive research assets, facility managers employ an array of airflow management techniques to
detect leakages, automate ventilation, and alarm personnel at the first sign of a containment breach. 
For laboratories, clean rooms, and pharmaceutical factories, we offer innovative control and
sensing solutions to bring facility equipment into safety compliance. Our cost-effective,
user-friendly products deliver the precision required for high-stakes critical containment.

 

Core Competencies:

  • Air Pattern & Flow Path Visualization for Leak Detection
  • Air Flow Safety Compliance including NSF/ANSI-49, OSHA, & NIBS regulations
  • Alarm Systems for Biosafety Cabinets, Chemical Fume Hoods, and Animal Cages
  • Empirical Data Collection Instruments for Containment Environments
  • Analytics Software for Environmental Dynamics Modeling
  • Laboratory-grade Sensors for Air Velocity, Temperature & Humidity Measurement
  • High-performance Thermal Controls for Medical Electronics

»   Air Flow Safety Monitoring

Get into airflow safety compliance with our alarm systems built for chemical fume hoods, biosafety cabinets, containment barriers, and clean rooms. Our RoosterTM solution platform is designed to accommodate a range of regulation requirements by allowing the facility manager to configure alarming thresholds, security protocols, and building system integration:

»   Airflow Visualization

Using our laboratory-grade fog instruments, designed specifically for sanitary and electronic environments, you can now reveal the movement patterns and flow paths of air. Unlike smoke sticks and carbon dioxide, these propylene-glycol based fog generators leave no residue and can be used to trace the ambient flow profiles of air to validate compliance in ventilation systems and equipment. Typical applications include laminar flow demonstration over wet benches, face velocity visualization in biosafety cabinets, containment barrier challenging, duct commissioning (NIBS), and egress through wall fixtures and baffles.
