A glove box, a nano hood (a lower flow hood fitted with HEPA or ULPA filters, preferably with an ionizer) or a biosafety cabinet are better alternatives. Our researchers mainly use glove boxes and one uses a nano hood when working with solid nanomaterials.

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.
