Control cross-contamination through lab vacuum lines

When you’re applying vacuum to an application in your lab, it can be easy to forget what’s going on behind the scenes. With a central vacuum system, every vacuum line serving your lab sucks gases, vapors and maybe even bio-aerosols into a common conduit. Once there, they mix with the emissions from other vacuum applications.…

Vacuum technology for flexible lab spaces

Looking closely at some of today’s older lab buildings can give you a hint of the design philosophy when they were constructed. Labs in many older buildings consist of confined, small – sometimes windowless – spaces in which a lone researcher or two would toil away. Work was performed insularly, and technology changed only slowly,…
