New LC benches can be easily raised and lowered electrically to safely and efficiently reach the upper sections of a stackable HPLC/UHPLC systems.

"IonBench LC conveniently lowers any stackable HPLC/UHPLC system by 30 cm (12 inches), making it faster, easier, and safer to manage solvents.”

Farhawk Marketing Services announced today that three innovative new laboratory benches for HPLC will be on display during the annual ASMS exhibition, to be held this year in Vancouver, BC, Canada, starting May 20th.

The new IonBench LC benches contribute significantly to lab safety and productivity.

They are stable, secure platforms that electrically raise and lower stacked HPLC/UHPLC systems. Model BCHLC4555 is a 45 cm (18 inches) by 55 cm (20 inches) bench that is ideal for smaller systems. Model BCHLC4575 at 45 cm (18 inches) x 75 cm (28 inches) and Model BCHLC9075 at 45 cm (18 inches) x 90 cm wide (35 inches) are large enough to safely and securely accommodate any stacked HPLC/UHPLC system available in the industry.

IonBench LC Promotes Lab Safety

“The primary goal of IonBench LC is to enhance safety during routine operation of high pressure liquid chromatographs”, said Tim Hawkins of FarHawk Marketing Services. “Installed on a conventional height bench or table, stackable HPLC/UHPLC towers can approach six feet in height. Solvent reservoirs which require routine attention are at the top of the system. Thus it is very difficult to safely check and refill solvents. IonBench LC conveniently lowers any stackable HPLC/UHPLC system by 30 cm (12 inches) making it faster, easier, and safer to manage solvents.”

Most operators currently use a step stool to reach the top of the HPLC/UHPLC system. This means that they must obtain the stool from its storage place in the lab, climb up and down to maintain solvents, stand on the small surface area of the step stool while they are servicing the instrument, and partially block the floor space around the system while they are performing this routine operation. This activity represents multiple opportunities for an accident and takes time. With IonBench LC, the operator simply flips a switch to lower the system to a safe and manageable height, does the solvent task, and raises the platform back up to operating height. This is an ideal accessory for any HPLC lab that wishes to operate their systems safely, efficiently, and productively.

Additional Laboratory Efficiency & Productivity

Another advantage of IonBench LC is its transportable nature. The base with solid lockable casters simplifies moving the HPLC/UHPLC system around. Now analysts can easily share the HPLC/UHPLC with any number of mass spectrometers, easily transfer the entire HPLC/UHPLC system to at-line process monitoring stations, or if permanent bench space is already occupied, enjoy a convenient way to expand analytical output without sacrificing additional bench space.
