NanoFab Tool: Labconco XPert Nano Enclosure

Photograph of the XPert Nano Enclosure.

The Labconco XPert Nano Enclosure provides users with a safe environment to process nanoparticles by keeping hazardous powders and particulates contained. It is used during procedures such as nanoparticle manipulation and dry powder chemical handling. Room air is pulled into the enclosure through the front, flows to the baffle, and passes through an ultra-low particulate air (ULPA) filter before exiting to the roof exhaust.

Specifications/Capabilities

  • 1.8 m (6 ft) wide work surface.
  • Ultra-low particulate air (ULPA) filter.
  • Illuminated surface.

Typical Applications

  • Nanoparticle imaging preparation.
