Benefits of mobile laboratory benches
Save valuable lab space
Features include a retractable keyboard and mouse table, LCD screen mounting and space for PC, optional solvents cupboard (single vacuum pump model only) and fused power outlets, which together provide up to 30% saving in laboratory space.
No need to leave access space at the rear of the mass spec
The MS-WorkstationTM/LC-Workstation is mounted on solid lockable casters. This allows for the instruments to be located against a wall or other system; when required, you can move the complete system for maintenance or relocation purposes.
Magnetic access panels and a slide-out vacuum pump tray also allow easy access to the pump and control PC.
Quieter working environment
The MS-WorkstationTM features a built-in MS-QuietBox IITM noise reduction system available for single or double vacuum pumps, reducing noise by 15 dB(A) (75%) and maintaining pump temperature with integral fans.
Maintain optimum pump temperature
Automatic thermal fans adjust speed to the ambient temperature. They are designed to keep power consumption and noise levels minimum and deliver high-performance cooling when required.
Audible & visual alarm (on a battery backup)
The MS-QuietBox II features a digital temperature display with a battery backup and audible/visual alarm.
Unique slide out pump tray
A sliding pump tray allows full access to the pumps, filters and connectors for maintenance.
Fire-resistant, not fire retardant
Our high density ’0’ fire rated foam is manufactured by impregnating standard foam with liquid carbon, which is then dried, leaving a fire-resistant sound absorption material able to withstand various ignition sources. This end product is fire-resistant, not fire-retardant, the difference being that fire-retardant foam will burn until the ignition source is removed, whereas our foam will not burn.
The MS-Workstation offers two solutions to concerns over vibration from the pump interfering with the Mass Spec. Although this is not a problem for most systems, as standard, the MS-Workstations feature vibration dampers under the oil tray, removing 99% of the vibration from a standard pump. The vibration dampers comprise two flat parallel flanges connected by a bonded rubber core and are designed so that the radial and axial elasticity are aligned, providing excellent vibration absorption and noise reduction. For TOF and QTOF machines where sensitivity is more of an issue, we recommend the Total Isolation Solution (TIS) available exclusively with MS-Workstation.
Total Isolation Solution (TIS)
The Total Isolation Solution allows the MS-QuietBox II to be completely detached from the MS-Workstation, resulting in 100% of the pump vibration being isolated from the Mass Spec. This unique design allows the MS-QuietBox II to be integrated into the MS-Workstation to allow for easy relocation/ maintenance. Once the MS-Workstation is in position, wind the TIS stabilisation feet down to isolate the MS-QuietBox II and pump.
Delivery and installation
Unlike some mobile workbench manufacturers, our innovative design allows us to install the MS-Workstation within your laboratory* rather than just delivering to your goods-in. Our standard frame size is only 770cm (30.3 inches) deep, and if necessary, your on-site maintenance team can remove the top surface to manoeuvre the MS-Workstation into your designated laboratory. *Subject to survey.
