Solvent Safety Caps

HPLC Safety Caps from Greyhound Chromatography

          

            

AIT France presents its own Smart Caps range to suit your HPLC system at best. This range offers you two solutions: - Smart Healthy Caps-Smart Waste Caps

Smart Healthy caps are manufactured in response to modern laboratory safety regulations.

They are made of inert materials resistant to chemicals.

The use of a one-way air check valve allows for low cost safe and secure solvent extraction in your laboratory.


• No solvent evaporation
• Keep your concentration accurate for several days
• No mobile phase external contamination


AIT France offers a diversified range of activated charcoal cartridge for the emission of eluent and solvent vapours; by special charcoal impregnation, the cartridges become an excellent barrier against concentrated acids or bases.


A Smart Waste Cap forms an airtight cap, drilled with a variable number of holes to host effluents tubes outgoing from the HPLC system.

The main piece is a cartridge filled with activated charcoal attached to the cap. This filter allows the absorption of 98% of the solvent's vapours released by the solvent's can.

There are many size and configuration options available to suit your personal needs. Please refer to the catalogue for full products details.

Every One an Expert

eVol® xr digital analytical syringe is the coupling of two precision devices: a digitally controlled electronic drive and an XCHANGE® enabled analytical syringe.

eVol xr syringes are easily and quickly changed allowing them to be dedicated to individual liquids or methods to prevent possible cross-contamination of reagents.

Features and benefits

  • Suitable for use with volatile samples.Variable speed of operation.
  • Easily calibrated and calibration factors saved for each syringe, enabling laboratories to comply with stringent global laboratory standards (e.g. GLP, GMP, FDA).
  • Programmable and able to store a laboratory workflow (up to 98 steps).
  • Password protection options enabling standardization of work processes.
  • Reduces the need for serial dilutions.

Recommended applications

  • Preparation and addition of standards.
  • Precise dispensing of aqueous and non-aqueous liquids.
  • TLC spotting.
  • Micro titrations.
  • GC and LC instrument injections.
  • NMR sample preparation.
  • MEPS®

Pesticides found in American Homes | Certified Reference Standards | Chem Service Inc. | Greyhound Chromatography

Despite the existence of chemical-free methods to eradicate pests, Americans use more than a billion pounds of pesticides per year. These chemicals are mostly out of sight and out of mind to unsuspecting homeowners, who are typically unaware of how to prevent potential harm—something new Cornell University research is addressing.

In a study recently published in JSM Health Education & Primary Health Care, College of Human Ecology researchers Joseph Laquatra, Mark Pierce, Alan Hedge, and Ann Lemley examined the extent of indoor pesticide pollution in New York state rural homes.

Conducting pesticide analyses as part of a larger effort that studied pollutants in homes and child care facilities, the researchers sampled 350 homes in Chenango, Columbia, Essex, Franklin, Wyoming, and Hamilton counties, looking for 15 potentially toxic pesticides commonly used in those areas' agricultural practices, with a likelihood of accumulation in the interiors of nearby homes.

"We found that pesticide residues are ubiquitous in rural homes in New York state," said Laquatra, professor of design and environmental analysis, who noted that positive results for such chemicals were found in every house tested.

Particularly concerning to Laquatra and his fellow researchers is what is known about these chemicals and their potential harmfulness to humans, especially infants.

"Numerous health problems occur from exposure to pesticides, such as cancer, birth defects, leukemia, and ocular [vision-related] toxicity, among a number of other health issues," Laquatra said. "Households with crawling toddlers should be concerned, as toddlers will accumulate pesticide residues on their hands and then ingest them due to hand-to-mouth behaviors."

Previous studies of pesticide residues in homes have highlighted entry routes for chemicals that include tracking with shoes, bare feet, clothing or animal fur; airborne entry; and soil gas entry. Adjacency and proximity to agricultural operations have also been cited as factors responsible for residential pesticide residues because of spray drift. Further, pesticides applied to gardens and lawns can follow these same transport routes into a home.

Once inside a home, according to research, pesticide residues accumulate in dust and degrade at a lower rate than they do outdoors because they are shielded from the effects of rain, sun, and soil microbial activity.

According to the study, "Common Pesticide Residues in Rural Homes of New York State," pesticide education programs could include home maintenance guidelines for prevention—and safe eradication—of accumulated pesticide residues, of which consumers may not be aware.

Emphasis, said Laquatra, should be placed on the importance of keeping the home clean.

"When building new homes or remodeling existing homes, install hard surface, easy-to-clean floors, such as hardwood, tile or resilient flooring. Keep floors clean," he said. "Have a home entry system that captures soil and pollutants at the door. This entry system should consist of a hard-surfaced walkway, such as a paved sidewalk, a grate-like scraper mat outside the entry door, and a highly absorbent doormat that will trap pollutants."

These best practices, according to Laquatra, can have vast education and public policy implications to help minimize exposure to residents, not only in New York state but across the country.
