ShieldCXP Protects Postdoctoral Student from Trimethyl Aluminum

The day started like any other — a postdoctoral experiment called for trimethyl aluminum, an extremely flammable chemical that immediately ignites upon exposure to air........“We did everything right — our researchers were outfitted in the appropriate garments, using the proper syringes, following established protocol, and utilizing backup safety spotters. But it only takes one small misstep for something to happen, and in this instance, our highly experienced researcher moved a little too aggressively.”............“I get chills just thinking what would have happened had she not been wearing [ShieldCXP],” reflects the lab supervisor, as he continues with the story.
