Indoor Air Quality in the Lab

Maintaining excellent indoor air quality in a laboratory is of utmost importance for a variety of different reasons. Air pollution from external sources can affect test results, substance purity, or lead to health issues. Additionally, chemicals and particulate matter being used in the lab are often harmful on their own. Which is why proper precaution must be taken at all times to keep the individuals working in the lab safe. With the help of Extract-All, you can improve indoor air quality by capturing contaminants at the source, before being exposed to their harmful effects.

See common laboratory applications below, and find the system that works best for you. If you don’t see your application listed, contact us so we can help find your indoor air quality solution.
