About Laminar Air Flow Hoods

Laminar Air Flow Hoods serve to ensure contamination prevention for sensitive materials or devices (such as biological processes).

Laminar Air Flow occurs when the air current flows and generates an even level of velocity on parallel lines, thus assisting to transform lab cultures in a sterile environment. When fresh air flows in a laminar way, it can replace contaminated air in a certain environment, creating a clean air environment.

Inside the Laminar Air Flow Hood, the air is channeled  and cleaned by a High Efficiency Particulate Air filter (also known as a HEPA filter) and is then streamed smoothly as a completely clean laminar air-stream towards the user.

With Laminar Hoods, the filtered air flows through a filter installed at the back of the hood, towards the user, and with Vertical Hoods, the filtered air flows downwards through a filter installed at the top of the hood.

Vertical and Horizontal Laminar Hoods have different pros and cons. Witih Laminar Flow hoods, the air isn't channeled toward the user's face, and the airflow is not blocked by large objects. With Horizontal laminar flow hoods, placing sensitive materials next to the HEPA filter is easy, and no dust flows onto sensitive materials.
