BOSTON, MA (PRWEB) May 29, 2013
Practical Applications, Inc. (PAI), a leading provider of solutions for complex environmental and chemical fluid issues, announced today that a global pharmaceutical company has chosen its proprietary solvent dispensing system for its ability to continuously supply reagents to laboratory equipment more safely and economically than traditional methods.
“We are thrilled to provide our customers with an innovative solvent dispensing solution,” said Gary Broberg, president and chief executive officer of PAI. “Now that companies have the ability to program lab space above the first floor at a very high density, they can reap the benefits of big cost savings and increased flexibility.”
Only Closed Loop System Approved for Use in Massachusetts
PAI has developed the only closed loop dispensing system approved for use in Massachusetts, allowing companies to better utilize their lab space. Traditional laboratory methods limit the solvent quantities stored at the bench. They also have several operational disadvantages, such as limited run cycles, low productivity, frequent bottle changes, personnel safety, and fire hazards. PAI’s solvent dispensing system continuously delivers solvents from a storage unit located in a fire safe room and dispenses it to equipment in the laboratory space. The lab space can be located on upper floors, where regulated solvent volumes are limited. This system operates with low volume reservoirs, which regulate flow via spigots similar to other bench top reagents (i.e., argon and reagent water).
The PAI Solvent Dispensing System also reduces waste storage on the laboratory floor significantly, an important consideration, as Waste Solvents are counted in National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) storage limits. PAI’s automatic under bench waste transfer stations continuously transport waste solvents to a central storage tank located in a fire safe room.
