The glove box was tested for containment of aerosolized nanoparticles, a testing process adapted from the ASHRAE 110 test often used to evaluate the effectiveness of laboratory enclosures. The enclosure proved to contain aerosolized Silicon Dioxide particles no larger than 26nm effectively, greater than 99.99% on a particle number basis.
Advances in nanotechnology provide a wonderful challenge for containment experts to test the limits of their designs. The Protector Glove Box is a great example of an existing design that is uniquely fit to meet the ever more challenging demands of innovation.
