Home > Press > XPert® Nano Enclosure is the FIRST and ONLY enclosure to be validated for nanomaterial containment

Abstract:
XPert Nano Enclosures provide user protection by keeping hazardous powders and particulates contained during procedures such as nanoparticle manipulation and dry powder chemical handling. The patented containment enhancing design features maintain user protection by drawing room air into the front of the enclosure, sweeping the cabinet interior, pulling the air to the back through the patented baffle, and filtering the air through a 99.999% bag-in/bag-out ULPA filter before returning the clean air to the laboratory. The all stainless steel interior (sides, work surface, removable baffle and removable air foil) is designed for easy wipe down and cleaning procedures. An optional built-in ionizer neutralizes static charge on interior surfaces by emitting ions into the airstream, which helps reduce weighing errors and attraction of particles to the enclosure surfaces.

XPert® Nano Enclosure is the FIRST and ONLY enclosure to be validated for nanomaterial containment

Kansas City, MO | Posted on April 30th, 2014

Exposure to nanomaterials during manufacturing and use may occur and until a clearer picture emerges, the limited evidence available would suggest caution when exposures to nanoparticles may occur. The XPert Nano was subjected to a state-of-the-art nanoaerosol containment challenge and the containment under those test conditions have been independently verified by NANOSAFE, INC. The XPert Nano is the first and only commercially available enclosure to receive the NanoSafe Tested™ validation.
