Gloveboxes in Space

Gloveboxes of Bradford have flown on Space Shuttles, the Russian Mir station, and are currently operating aboard the International Space Station.

Imagine what we can do for your launch.


Physical, Material and Chemical Sciences

Bradford's gloveboxes have been an enabler for physical science, chemistry, material science and substance investigations in microgravity. The containment capabilities and interface, ventilation, environment and measurement features allows a full range of science to be performed in space.

Biological and Life Sciences

Biological sciences are also enabled by the glovebox containment environment. Past glovebox experiments have included life science activities, investigating effects of microgravity for therapies, performance and general health.
