Proving leaktightness of the DPTE® system
The DPTE® system is the industry benchmark for secure sterile transfer in pharmaceutical production. It reduces manual intervention and so lowers contamination risk.
Top 3 Causes of Cross Contamination in Biosafety Facilities
Cross contamination in BSL-3 and BSL-4 laboratories represents a significant risk to personnel and the surrounding community due to the dangerous agents housed within these facilities. Unlike cross contamination in other laboratories, which typically only leads to false-positives in scientific tests, contamination in BSL-3 or BSL-4 facilities has the potential to lead to a life-threatening epidemic
5 Factors for Safe Material Transfer in BSL-3 and BSL-4 Facilities
Recent incidents in some of the world's most prestigious BSL-3 and BSL-4 laboratories demonstrate that if proper protocols are not followed, contamination can cause detrimental results
The 4 Pillars of successful labware cleaning
Standard laboratory washing protocols are established by balancing the factors of the Sinner’s Circle to ensure quick, thorough and economical laboratory glassware cleaning. The Sinner’s Circle is essentially an equation that consists of four factors: mechanical action, chemical action, temperature and time.
