Omega glovebox boosts materials research at Leeds

Abstract:
The Omega glovebox has been specially designed to allow for scientists to mix organometallic compounds to produce precursor sols to manufacture ferroelectric thin films on platinised silicon substrates for use within the electronics industry. Forming part of the GSPK group of companies based in Knaresborough, North Yorkshire, Saffron Scientific is a specialist in the design, development, manufacture and installation of gloveboxes, dry anaerobic gloveboxes and bespoke containment systems for the storage, handling and processing of hazardous and toxic substances. Saffron's product range is often supplied to researchers within the field of nanotechnology in order for a controlled environment to be created while handling substances of a toxic or reactant nature.
