Metal-free Chemistry Clean Room
To prepare samples for mass spectrometric measurements, we have a home-designed, but state-of-the-art “metal free” chemistry clean laboratory. Equipped with a dedicated air handling unit and HEPA filters, the whole lab meets or exceeds class 1,000 conditions. The main chemistry room contains five fume hoods, one horizontal laminar flow workstation, and six working benches, for sample digestions, chromatographic separations, trace element purification, and other procedures. Additional lab equipment includes a centrifuge machine, corrosion-free hotplates, two sub-boiling acid purification systems, semi-micro and analytical balances, and a Millipore Milli-Q Intergral coupled with a Q-Pod Element system.
