ISIS Chemistry Labs house several gloveboxes for use in sample preparation, and handling of air and moisture sensitive compounds.

The small chemistry laboratory in TS1 houses a MBraun UNILab Glovebox (Argon), an inert glovebox filled with nitrogen. The West Chemistry Laboratory (TS2) also houses a MBraun UNIlab glovebox (Argon), with a solvent absorber and should be used if handling solvents. The Muon Preparation Laboratory at TS1 houses a MBraun UNIlab glovebox (Helium). All gloveboxes are equiped with an analytical balance.

User instructions and working practices are posted by each glovebox, and are available in the related links box to the right.

Users are encouraged to contact the Lab Manager in advance to enquire about non routine use of the gloveboxes.
