Beta emissions of ³²P, ³5S, ³H and ¹4C can be effectively blocked by using 10mm thick optical acrylic, which is now the accepted standard for shielding beta emissions in biological research. The properties of this acrylic material are ideal for the construction of beta radiation protection products. It is easy to bend, fabricate and machine into a wide range of products. Also, being transparent, the visibility of the working environment is not impaired

Supplied in small, medium and large sizes and with curved base 15cm-deep for use with safety trays or flat 30x30cm base for under-the-bench protection. A range of angles offers increased manoeuvrability, while clear optical acrylic aids visualisation.
Biocom cabinets provide a convenient area to carry out work with beta and gamma emitting isotopes with complete all round protection. Each cabinet’s 49 x 55 x 37cm dimensions offer a large working area without impeding vision, either in a standing or seated position.
Storage Boxes, Racks and Waste Bins
Biocom storage boxes are manufactured with hinged lids and accommodate interchangeable inserts that hold microtubes, centrifuge tubes, scintillation vials, universals, cryotubes and falcon tubes. Also supplied is our range of floor-standing and benchtop bins with anti-slip feet and hinged lids. These serve as an ideal solution for short-term storage of radioactive waste or radioisotopes. Both the Beta and Gamma storage bins are available in five sizes, while the two largest bin models have wheels for easy transportation. Optional heavy duty drawstring bags may also be purchased.
Other accessories available include pipette guards, radiation tape and warning signs and labels.
