In light of ever more stringent regulations covering environmental and workplace exposure to airborne toxic compounds, Interscan has responded with rugged and reliable products. But, that's only one part of the solution. The company also offers its applications expertise, via one-on-one contact with its customers, as well as through its Gas Detection Knowledge Base, acknowledged to be the most comprehensive source of such information.
"With many of my customers now wearing several hats, and being pushed into areas where their expertise may be lacking, the Knowledge Base is a welcome and helpful resource," said Bob MacKeil, lead technician for MedBrokers, a sales and service company operating in the health care space. MacKeil notes that toxic gas monitoring applications abound in health care, especially with regard to sterilants.
Since many newer medical devices cannot take the heat of steam, chemical sterilization processes using such compounds as ethylene oxide, hydrogen peroxide, and peracetic acid have been widely deployed. While effective at killing pathogens, these compounds are also toxic, and in the case of ethylene oxide, are carcinogenic to humans.
Continuous air monitoring of these workplaces is an excellent means to assure employee safety. The Knowledge Base, as well as other technical content on Interscan's website, offers helpful hints and best practices to achieve this goal.
Topics covered in the Knowledge Base range from basic issues as what is meant by accuracy and minimum detectability, to a write-up on proper units of measurement. A host of dynamic conversion calculators are also offered on the site. The company has taken great care to ensure the accuracy of these calculators.
"Interscan has always been the go-to source for technical, regulatory, and applications information," said Grant McClure, special projects manager at Interscan. "We are delighted that our Gas Detection Knowledge Base has become so popular in the industry."
