Laboratory and research facilities in many fields make use of glass ampoules. When researchers and lab technicians calibrate equipment they often times rely on the referenced compounds contained within the ampoules to establish a standard or benchmark during the calibration process. Calibration can take place as often as daily, weekly, or monthly. With such regular use of glass ampoules comes the increased risk of sharps injuries.
Glass ampoules are used in other areas of laboratory and research work as well, putting the people handling them in greater danger of getting hurt when using traditional “bare hands” or other inferior ampoule opening methods. But why expose your staff to these risks?
