The shock lab workers don’t feel
SelecTech has presented and exhibited at several lab conferences recently, The number one issue brought up by attendees is ESD control for labs.
For starters, a 100-volt charge in a lab or healthcare setting can:
- Damage expensive electronic equipment
- Destroy crucial test results
- Compromise important patient data
- Impact patient care
Just to give you some perspective, a carpet shock represents 3,000 volts or more of static electricity. While that shock surprises you a bit, it does no real damage. You can’t say the same for a 100-volt charge that takes place in a lab setting.
SelecTech President Tom Ricciardelli is an expert on static control and ESD flooring. He is also chairman of the committee formed by the ESD Association (www.esda.org) to write ESD guidelines for lab and healthcare settings.
