Laboratory supplies: Working safely in the laboratory

DENIOS offers a comprehensive range of products for laboratory safety. This includes tried-and-tested solutions that ensure the safe handling of hazardous substances in the laboratory as well as the storage of hazardous substances in compliance with the law. You will find a large selection of products for employee protection. In addition, we have many other practical items of laboratory equipment and laboratory devices in our range.

Storage of hazardous substances in the laboratory

Hazardous substances cabinets for laboratories

Hazardous substances cabinets enable the safe storage of hazardous substances in small containers within the laboratory. Depending on their properties, different substances must be have different stiplations for storage. If flammable substances are to be stored in the laboratory, a fire-resistant hazardous substances cabinet is required. This protects the stored material from a critical temperature increase in the event of a fire. With aggressive substances, on the other hand, it is important that the laboratory hazardous materials cabinet is corrosion-resistant. For the best use of the space in your laboratory, we offer hazardous materials cabinets in various model sizes and specifications. A practical and safe option where a range of different hazardous substances are used, is our hazardous substance cabinets with partitioning.

Drip trays for laboratories

Spill trays or drip trays are perfect for the storage of small containers in a laboratory. You will find a large selection of spill trays in the DENIOS online shop. Our laboratory trays made of highly chemically resistant polyethylene offer long-term corrosion protection when storing aggressive liquids in the laboratory. For flammable liquids (H224-22), we offer steel laboratory drip trays. These stainless steel laboratory trays are particularly hygienic, and also suitable for storing both flammable and aggressive substances. In our range, you will also find practical laboratory trays that you can use as experiment trays, display trays or storage trays for laboratory instruments.

Shelving for small containers for laboratories

Shelving for hazardous materials is a good space saving option for laboratories . There a range of designs, each suitable for different types of hazard such as water-polluting substances, flammable liquids or aggressive chemicals. Our small container shelving is available as an expandable version either as a basic model or with add-on bays.

SpillGuard® connect

Safely networked. Innovative, digital leakage management

Use the advantages of digitalisation for your leakage management 4.0: With the new, innovative SpillGuard® connect leakage detector, you can monitor your sumps centrally via a web application and be alerted in real time in the event of a leakage.

Handling of hazardous substances in the laboratory

Laboratory bottles and containers

Small containers are work equipment that is handled in laboratories on a daily basis, for example for sample storage. Laboratory bottles, containers, packaging cans and other vessels are therefore indispensable for laboratory equipment. At DENIOS, you benefit from a large selection of high-quality laboratory containers in various sizes and shapes - of course also in food-safe versions. Our tip for more sustainability in the lab: organic narrow-neck bottles made from renewable raw materials (Green-PE).

FALCON safety containers

Anyone who has to dose, transfer, store and transport hazardous liquids in the laboratory cannot do without FALCON! FALCON offers a comprehensive range of professional safety containers and safety accessories for the safe and precise handling of liquid hazardous substances.

Filling in the laboratory: pumps, funnels and samplers

From the chemical industry to pharmaceuticals, from food to university research: the transfer and filling of hazardous substances is routine in the laboratory. Laboratory pumps, funnels or even samplers are often the laboratory equipment of choice to do these dosing tasks. In our online shop, you will find laboratory pumps with various drive systems (manual, electric, battery-powered) that are designed for smaller containers. Various funnels and samplers for liquids, solids or viscous media are also part of the DENIOS range for filling activities in the laboratory.

Chemical binders for laboratory work

The special version of DENSORB binders are ideal for laboratory work when using a wide range of hazardous substances. They are extremely versatile as they can absorb a wide range of hazardous liquids with different properties (acids, alkalis and aggressive liquids). Use DENSORB non-woven bandages as absorbent underlays for laboratory work, for quick and uncomplicated cleaning of laboratory instruments or for absorbing spilled liquids. Our tip: DENSORB Special Binding Fleeces with a liquid-permeable protective layer giving reinforcement on both sides and are particularly clean and lint-free. The yellow warning colour of DENSORB chemical binders indicates a potential hazard and makes the absorbed liquid clearly visible.

Occupational safety and employee protection in the laboratory

Personal protective equipment for laboratory staff

The nature of work in laboratories mean that employees often come into contact with hazardous substances. Personal protective equipment (PPE) is indispensable for complete employee protection in the laboratory. The DENIOS range of PPE supplies offers you a wide selection in the area of protection for your staff - from protective clothing to protective gloves and from goggles to respiratory protection.

Hazardous substance workplaces for laboratories

Hazardous substance workstations protect laboratory employees when handling chemicals and ensure compliance with the workplace safety guidelines and regulation.

The high protective effect of DENIOS hazardous substance workstations is achieved by fresh air curtains (ejector technology), which are blown out at the front edge of the work surface and at the ceiling. The fresh air curtains drive the hazardous vapours towards the rear wall, where they are extracted. The advantage: working with ejector technology means that there is no need for a front sash. The resulting open front area enables barrier-free, efficient working.

Emergency showers and eye washes

Emergency showers in laboratories are an essential piece of equipment. Regulations specifically tailored to laboratories, such as TRGS 526 "Laboratories" and the laboratory guidelines of the German Social Accident Insurance (DGUV Information 213-850), require the use of body and eye showers. Eye wash bottles with sterile rinsing fluid are only permissible if no running drinking water is available. Emergency showers and eye wash bottles as well as practical combination showers for your laboratory equipment are available from DENIOS in many different designs. Find quick easy ordering for eye wash bottles in our shop.

Laboratory equipment and apparatus

Laboratory scales

When weighing in laboratories, high precision is essential to achieve reliable and error-free results. We offer you a wide range of laboratory scales - from precision scales to analytical scales - with different weighing ranges and digit steps. Many models offer typical laboratory functions such as percentage determination, piece counting and GLP logging. For applications subject to legal metrology, you can also obtain legal-for-trade laboratory scales from us. In these cases, we ask you to order the calibration directly.

Laboratory furniture

Furniture is an important part of the laboratory equipment. Whether ergonomic workstations or easily accessible storage space - we offer many products that you can use to complete your laboratory. For example, food-safe material cabinets made of high-quality stainless steel that offer storage space wherever there are special requirements for cleanliness and hygiene. Ergonomic laboratory chairs and work stools ensure back-friendly work. You can create the right lighting conditions in the laboratory with suitable work lights such as energy-saving LED magnifying lamps, which are available in our range.

Safety disposal containers

Laboratory waste, such as contaminated cleaning cloths, does not belong in standard waste under any circumstances. It should be put in special disposal containers. Flame-extinguishing waste containers are part of the required laboratory equipment. These containers offer effective protection against the development of fire inside, for example through self-closing lids and bottom ventilation. Now new: Our innovative stainless steel waste collector with exhaust connection does not allow dangerous vapours to escape.
