Quantum Air Technology Extracting Operating Table
What is the Extracting Operating Table ?
Operating tables are commonly used in Life Science applications. If they are extracted it means that there is a flow of air down into the perforated table top, away from the work and the operator. This air can then be filtered and returned to the lab. In this way, exposure to anaesthetic gases and allergens may be kept to a minimum.
The harmful elements are sucked into an air filtration module situated alongside which has a HEPA filter for particles and a carbon filter for gases and vapours. A fan system sucks the air from the table through the filters. The air filtration module is the same as that used in the Airguard product.
The Extracted Operating Table has application in Life Sciences where anaesthetic gas is used.
How does it work?
The air filtration module works similarly to its military counterpart - the Airguard. HEPA and defence grade carbon filters in conjunction with a fan supply air from the perforated table, back to the lab. The filtration cleans the ventilated air of any airborne hazards such as anaesthetic gas and allergens.
An internal battery ensures the system can continue to provide protection even if the local mains supply goes down.
The Extracted Operating Table provides a much greater level of protection for any personnel in the room than a standard table. This is likely to mean the quality of the work undertaken is higher and probably quicker making it both more efficient and safer.
