A safe change housing is used when pathogens and or harmful substances may be present in the filter media and direct contact with these filters must be avoided.
Vivid Air has recently designed and built fume cupboards that can be used in school laboratories and science classrooms, allowing students to learn about hazardous chemicals while staying protected from possible harm caused by them.
Thanks to you, our clients, we have been able to continue pushing the boundaries of clean air, which plays a fundamental role in virology and other related fields of study. Without clean air, understanding the way the virus works would not be possible.
When hazardous substances are stored incorrectly, there is an immediate health and safety risk related to potential leakage of toxic fumes which, when combined with other factors such as heat or fire, can lead to explosion.
Because UV light is extremely effective for killing a large variety of harmful bacteria, moulds, viruses, yeasts and other pathogens, it can be used in various environments, including clean rooms and laboratories.
Unidirectional flow in theatre plays a crucial role in sterility and preventing hospital-acquired infections during surgery. In addition, clean air distribution is fundamental to the health and safety of the surgery team and also provides a comfortable working environment.
HEPA filters are used in various clean air environments and their primary function is to remove fine particulates from the air. It is, therefore, crucial that the HEPA filters are tested and maintained to ensure their optimal function in every application.
A PCR enclosure, also referred to as a PCR workstation, is used in laboratories that deal with genetics and biology.
These workstations provide an enclosed space to effectively prevent cross contamination between samples and UV lights that are used for sterilisation.
Generally speaking, a PCR enclosure is a workspace that is enclosed on three sides and is used for performing amplification of DNA and RNA.
As we manage the Corona Virus Pandemic, the sterility of our environments as well as the air quality around us must be assessed. This pandemic will burden our society for some time to come and the World Health Organisation has advised that rooms be adequately ventilated when dealing with the Corona Virus.
Cleanrooms, Laboratories and Isolation Wards use various methods to ensure sterile and safe environments when handling infectious substances.
