How to Choose the Right Laminar Air Flow Hood
If you work in a laboratory, then you know how important it is to maintain an aseptic environment. Whether you’re using a wire loop or a pipette, it’s imperative to contain the infectious materials that are produced by many microbiological procedures.
Laminar air flow is defined as air moving at the same speed and in the same direction, with no or minimal cross-over of air streams (or “lamina”). Most laboratories that are sensitive to contamination require laminar flow hoods because it moves particles in the same direction- from the cleanest area from under the hood to the exit area. This particular design provides the cleanest, most germ free laboratory environment possible.
