About S.C.A.T.


We bring you safety and comfort

Daily laboratory work with hazardous substances should be safe and trouble-free. With more than 20 years of experience, S.C.A.T. Europe offers the most sustainable safety systems for safe supply and disposal of liquid chemicals in laboratories worldwide.


S.C.A.T. stands for Safety-Center-Analyses-Technology. The company was founded to protect technicians in analytical laboratories from harmful materials used in the working environment. Founded in 2003, S.C.A.T. Europe pioneered the solution to reduce laboratory solvent air pollution from acetonitrile in HPLC systems. Scientists who work with HPLC know how important constant parameters are. S.C.A.T. Europe SafetyCaps prevent solvent emissions and guarantee a stable stationary phase and constant reflection times. These results were officially documented by an SGS Fresenius study. Increasingly, leading International equipment manufacturers are installing S.C.A.T. Europe components as a standard feature in their HPLC systems.

Extraction systems - SafetyCaps

How do you extract your solvents?

The first and foremost concern is chromatography and secondly, safe handling of solvents is taken into consideration. It is remarkable how little attention is given to one's own health protection. Everyone who works in the laboratory should be aware of the high level risk potential through hazardous solvent vapors. There are still numerous risky types of closures for solvent bottles in use. The inadequate handling during extraction of solvents also has consequences on your work results. The extraction capillaries can slide out of the solvent bottle because they are not screwed on tightly. This can cause air to be sucked in and HPLC equipment down times are thus "permanently calculated." In addition, the mobile phase gets contaminated by dust particles in the air. Similarly, evaporation loss of light volatile solvents can occur and change the mixing ratio of solvent compounds - so the results are distorted. This plays a particular role with UHPLC. Solvent filtration and precisely prepared mobile solvents, with constant mixing ratios throughout the entire term, are a must with UHPLC! In addition, solvent exchange with common screw caps is difficult to handle. Often, the well-known "tangled capillaries“ occur, when supply bottles have to be exchanged. Trust the market leader: S.C.A.T. - SafetyCaps are THE safety solution!

  • No more harmful vapors thanks to the integrated air valve.
  • Confidence during audits. With S.C.A.T. systems, you pass quality and safety inspections with confidence.
  • Easy container changes thanks to freely rotatable cap even with capillaries installed. Without twisting or "tangled capillaries“.
  • No eluent contamination Receptacles remain securely closed so the results of your analysis stay correct.
  • No capillary slippage so no accidental intake of air into the HPLC system. No interruption of analytical and work processes due to air pockets in the capillary.

Waste Systems - SafetyWasteCaps

One system for every thread!

The fluids in the waste containers in the laboratory are overwhelmingly poisonous - the user often does not know which mixture can emerge in the canisters.

Closed safety systems from S.C.A.T. Europe offer reassuring protection and also guarantee efficient work in the laboratory.

  • Filter systems against harmful vapors
    You will find exhaust filters in different sizes
  • Different thread sizes
    Use SafetyWasteCaps on your avaliable containers, or order the appropriate canisters at the same time!
  • Resistance against aggressive media
    Because they are made of pure PTFE and PE-HD, SafetyWasteCaps are resistant against organic solvents, acids and lyes

Safety Funnels with ball valve

  • The ball floats and automatically closes after filling
  • Quick and safe disposal - with both hands free
  • Splash protection and sieve to catch dirt and larger contaminant particles S.C.A.T. Europe Safety Funnels with ball valve and splash protection are world-wide unique and have become an efficient standard at the safe disposal of waste in laboratory and production.
  • Sieve, removable. For trapping stirrers or larger contaminant particles. Now made of PE-HD instead of stainless steel, so no corrosion by acids or lyes.
  • Splash protection. For uniform discharge without splashes.
  • Ball valve. The ball floats and automatically closes after filling. For the disposal of small quantities and sticky liquid waste into the container, we recommend to rinse enough with water after using the funnel with ball valve, to prevent a potential sticking or stucking of the ball valve.
  • Freely rotatable cap. In different thread sizes for a wide variety of containers.
  • Safety lance. Ensures clean outflow without contaminating the container opening. With electrically conductive funnels (black), the lance facilitates a safe additional grounding of the contents.
  • Electrostatic conductive PE-HD. All safety funnels in black (with ball valve or hinged lid) are made from electrostatic conductive PE-HD and have a ground connection to prevent ignition risks. The funnels are delivered with ground cable and clamp.

Everyday tasks in the laboratory that have become „The back of our hands“ – and we know, especially this is where the danger lurks. One of those seemingly trivial tasks is the disposal of solvents into the available containers. Everybody uses them, everybody dumps into them, but who ensures that the containers don’t overflow? However, overflowing waste containers in laboratories can be dangerous when work is done with critical substances and solvents. Dangerous fumes can spread fast. This is not only dangerous for individual health but under certain circumstances, can also lead to an explosion. Mechanically or electronically controlled containers provide more operational safety and protection from such serious consequences. The level control developed by S.C.A.T. gives warning through an optical and acoustic signal before the waste container overflows. In addition, connecting devices such as pumps and valves can be actuated via contact switches. Depending on demand, the different containers can be equipped either with non-contact sensors for exterior attachment or with float-controlled mechanical/optical and electronic/optical sensors. With the appendand electronic signal boxes, up to 5 containers can be monitored at the same time. Liquid waste can be safely collected by tubes or manually; the sensor triggers an alarm if a critical fill level is reached. In addition, an integrated safety funnel can be attached to the safety cap. It is only opened during filling and closes automatically afterwards. Running on empty can also cause damage. Also, in the opposite case, an empty level indicator might be required when the containers should not run empty. Some think timely refilling is sufficient and so undertake the risk, refilling might be forgotten. S.C.A.T. Europe offers just the right equipment for this. All sizes of laboratory glass bottles, canisters, barrels and tank containers can be equipped with the system. Additional installations are not required for this. According to the motto: “Plug and Play”, every level control is delivered as fully operational and with all the necessary components.
