Controlling Exposure While Unpacking Liquid Nanoparticle Dispersions

Operations Unpacking a liquid dispersion and transfer to another container.


  • Ventilated Laboratory Hood or local exhaust enclosure
  • If an exhausted enclosure is not availiable, PPE should be used to minimize potential for dermal and eye exposure
  • Latex or nitrile clean room gloves
  • Wet cleaning of laboratory hood surfaces or local exhaust enclosure following conclusion of handling operations

Alternatively, Control Banding may be employed when more is known about material reactivity, exposure duration and material state.
