Hand hygiene in the grow room
Always wash your hands or wear gloves when handling plants. Tobacco, unknown to most people carries a virus called TMV (tobacco mosaic virus) which transfers from the tobacco to your hands and then to the plants when you handle them. It’s a very difficult problem to get rid of, and similar to a cold or flu, it weakens the immune system of the plant and will make it far more susceptible to other diseases and infections. General cleanliness in the grow room is of the utmost importance.
The idea of hydroponics and indoor cultivation, especially when growing consumable produce, is to keep clean and sterile. Growers should keep clean and be very cautious of outside entities from cuttings, clothing, vents from outside, as well as any equipment entering the room from outside etc. These are all points where potential contamination and outbreaks can occur. Keep everything clean always, and clean equipment and systems between crops.
The name of our company, SHIELD Scientific, reflects the particular focus we have on the laboratory and high technology sectors. Our aim is to bring to these markets Personal Protective Equipment (PPE, laboratory gloves and cleanroom gloves) that for the first time is adapted to the needs of these segments. Indeed up until now, the products typically sold to the laboratory and high technology sectors originate from the medical or industrial field. Accordingly we have set five priorities for responding to the real needs of users in these sectors.
The comfort and well-being of glove-wearers is an integral part of the development process. In particular we have focused on the risks posed by gloves to the health of users. Thus our Natural Rubber Latex (NRL) gloves have levels of protein below those typically encountered with other gloves on the market.
Whilst numerous manufacturers are engaged in a rationalisation process – in particular a reduction in the range of sizes in an effort to cut costs – SHIELD Scientific is committed to maintaining the five sizes in order to offer choice for optimum fit. As part of an unstinting effort to produce gloves that maximize comfort for glove-wearers, we embrace the latest advances in nitrile technology. By offering gloves based on Skin Nitrile™, users can experience a level of elasticity not normally associated with nitrile gloves. Naturally these steps have been taken whilst appreciating the economic restraints in the market.
