LS Scientific in conjunction with Erlab Group, one of the world leaders in the production of fume hoods for standard laboratories, seek to help companies with laboratories protect their employees from the harmful effects of hazardous fumes.
Safety is so important that there are state laws guiding it especially in laboratory environments and when it comes to the personnel engaged in carrying out these tests and research procedures.
“Laboratories are essential to the development of human existence because ofthe continuous research activities in various branches of science and technology that go on in them,” said Olumurewa Odunjo managing director, LS Scientific.
Medical research, food and pharmaceutical production are all built on the foundation of laboratory technology which most times deal with the smaller elements that can be at times toxic and harmful if not properly handled or disposed.
There are certain reactions that give off vapours and gases that are harmful to the human body and their effects might not be felt immediately but over a period of time. Employers in industries where their laboratories are used for these sometimes extremely hazardous reactions are expected as a point of responsibility to protect their staff by providing protective equipment.
Fume hoods are used mainly for this purpose as such reactions when carried out in them will extract and filter the hazardous gases and leave the air within the laboratory clean.
With 45 years of expertise in the filtration of chemicals with ‘captairflex’ fume hoods and ‘captairstore’ storage cabinets, the wide range of Erlab products come with the advantage of: being easy to set up in addition to on-ground presence of their partners, LS Scientific in Nigeria.
