Hi Kim,
I'm fascinated by the "not too costly" part. I've been telling them over the years that I like their products but its tough to get academics to purchase at those prices. No need to reply, I'll revisit their cost information.

I had the reps from Flow Sciences ( in last week for a Lunch 'n Learn on their nano enclosures. Very impressive & not too costly. They had a nice bench top enclosure for weighing.

Dear members,

Does anyone have a source on a containment system for safely weighing dry nanomaterial? A chemical hood is usually too turbulent for the accuracy of a Mettler balance. Any thought you have including precaution(s) to take for this type of work would be appreciated.

Thank you and keep up the great work you do.
