We have recently designed, manufactured and validated 56No. extraction hoods to remove the fumes created by the use of Contec Prochlor (Hypochlorous Acid).
The use of this spray prior to entry of the raw material into pharmaceutical compounding facilities is a new requirement but the strong odour created by evaporation of the solution has been causing operator issues due to irritation.
The hoods feature face protection from the spray and are constructed from clear acrylic.
The hoods were installed in batches throughout all UK sites following extensive testing and the irritation to the staff has been eliminated.
