DL-400 PrepStation

  • $2,245.00

When preparing standards and diluting samples in an open lab there is always the possibility of airborne contamination from ceiling tiles, lab cooling and ventilation systems etc. The DL 400 PrepStation provides a convenient, clean space to work in, greatly minimizing the risk of contamination. A 4in. rear duct allows the DL 400 to be connected to the lab exhaust system when working with concentrated acids (flow rate of 400 CFM required), however it is not designed to be used for hot plate/block digestion or evaporation of acids. The DL 400 is manufactured by DetectionLimits in the USA from bonded 1/2in. thick transparent acrylic sheet on all sides, allowing for a well-lit working space. Easy access to the work area is provided via an open front panel and sides that are angled backwards. No metal components, screws or fittings are used, ensuring a clean working space for ultratrace analysis. A 3 å_in. lower front panel, and sealing on all joints provides protection from spillages.
