Safety regulations in EU countries

In Germany/Switzerland, all lab electronic devices have to be certified for their safety, otherwise you are not allowed to use them in the lab. Do you have similar regulations in the US and how did you deal with that for your prototype assembly in your Nature Biotech paper? Does your pre-assembled production eVOLVER have some kind of certification?

EDIT: I think it’s mostly about fire safety, since the universities are insured…

The eVOLVER system described in the NBT paper does not have any certifications. It is up to the user to determine how the device fits in the safety protocols within their own labs. I apologize, I cannot give any more guidance than that.

Sincerely,
Brandon
