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.

Lab Equipment Questions for the Experts

Precision Scientific/Model 6 - Setting temperature
Our incubator temperature is at 39.0 C and I need to lower it to 37.5 C. How do I adjust? Advise this member.

TA Instruments/Q600 - DSC heat flow calibration
After going though the manual, I have calibrated DSC heat flow and calculated cell constant. The value of cell constant is 0.52. I have used zinc to calculate the cell constant and theoretical value of heat of fusion is around 112 J/g ( ). I am confused about the value of cell constant as its value is generally closed to. 1. Can anybody suggest me something to crosscheck the value? Advise this member.
