Anyone In Their Right Mind Wouldn’t Drink Acetonitrile*
So, Why Do You Breathe It In Every Day?
Acute or chronic exposure to common lab solvents can result in central nervous disorders.1 How protected do you think you are?
Many HPLC and UHPLC labs today rely on makeshift enclosures leaving mobile phase and waste reservoirs open to evaporation. These shortcuts and a lack of attention to this danger expose lab staff to toxic chemical fumes, often Category 1 Toxic solvents, leading to accidents, injuries, illnesses, and even death.2
MAC-MOD SafetyCaps, waste solutions, and tubing solutions are designed to eliminate the evaporation of harmful solvents into the lab, limiting the exposure of these harmful toxins to lab personnel.
Help prevent solvent vapors from bottles entering the laboratory environment
Significantly reduce exposure to organic vapors
Help prevent particulates and laboratory air impurities from contaminating solvents
Ensure reproducible analytical results
Fit every brand and model of chromatographic HPLC and UHPLC system
Labs will also cut the waste tubing to run solvent waste lines to the waste container. This practice allows Category 1 Toxic solvents to evaporate into the lab that chemists breathe in daily.
Our Tubing Solutions
Multi-tubing adapter allows all waste lines to drain into the waste container without the need for cutting tubing
Sealed connections prevent the evaporation of category 1 toxic chemicals from evaporating into the lab
Less tubing running to the floor clears tripping hazards and creates a cleaner workspace

Our Justrite® Waste Container Solution
Prevents the evaporation of toxic solvents into the lab space
Every tube coming from the HPLC or UHPLC waste feeds directly into the waste adapter, which flows directly into the waste container
Minimizes spills in the lab by providing a completely closed system that reduces the risk of overflowing
