5 Lab Design Criteria for the Future of U.S. National Labs

Governments around the world rely on their national labs to conduct research that will keep them at the leading edge of scientific and technological advancement.

Considering that U.S. national labs were developed during the middle of the 20th century and their management model is only recently showing signs of change, a major concern is that our national lab system may be many times inadequate to keep pace with modern day research initiatives.

4 Tips for Optimal Lab Fume Hood Performance and Safety

Posted by Mike Baranski on May 22, 2018 10:52:16 AM

Fume Hood Safety Protocols Should Be In Lockstep with a Safe Lab Design

Fume hoods serve as the literal and figurative birthplace for next generation research and scientific discovery. Within these clean, confined spaces, our world is discovering new ways to improve the quality of life for all.

Thomas Edison was known to utilize his fireplace chimney as a fume vent. Without it, chances are his work would have ended prematurely. 

These days, fume hoods are better ventilated, more chemically resistant, cleaner, and perform better than Edison’s fireplace, but they still require basic care and planning to ensure that lab safety is not compromised.

Lab Air Quality In Multi-Use Research Labs

Posted by Mike Baranski on Apr 23, 2018 4:30:33 PM

5 Fundamentals For Dynamic Lab Air Quality Needs

In the face of exponentially changing technology and consumer demands, advanced manufacturing industries are driving research labs and clean rooms to accommodate multiple production flows.

As such, these facilities must contend with a wider spectrum of lab air quality requirements, including increased air supply, dynamic airflow patterns, room pressurization, and high-efficiency air filtration versus that of traditional labs and clean rooms.

Here we'll cover 5 fundamental lab air quality considerations that should be factored into every advanced manufacturing clean room or research lab design.
