Protecting Personnel and Samples: The Strength of Laminar Flow Cabinets

Ensuring the safety of your staff and the integrity of your samples is paramount in any laboratory setting. Our laminar flow cabinets stand as a stalwart defense against harmful vapors and the threat of cross-contamination, much like Class II B2 biosafety cabinets.

Harnessing the power of laminar air flow technology, our cabinets create a seamless shield of HEPA filtered air over the workspace, safeguarding both personnel and samples from hazardous fumes and particulates. This meticulous airflow is then efficiently exhausted through a roof-mounted ventilation stack, ensuring minimal environmental impact.

Effortless Control and Unrivaled Durability: Elevate Your Laboratory with our Laminar Flow Cabinets

Purair Laminar Flow Hoods are available in 36 models with vertical and horizontal configurations in 6 different widths 24″ 36″ 48″ 60″ 72″ and 96″. 

They arrive fully assembled—just plug them in and use them, no installation required. Designed for desktop use, they can also be installed on an optional mobile base stand. 

The high capacity air handling system delivers a flow velocity of 0.4 m/s or 80 fpm, ensuring optimal performance. Choose from a standard powder-coated or stainless steel interior to suit your lab’s needs.

Safe & Compliant

Combined protection for the user and the sample.

ISO5 & ISO4 Cleanliness

HEPA or ULPA filters are installed to achieve the highest standards of cleanliness.

Customizable Dimensions

Designed to maximize space and process capabilities.

Choosing Between Laminar Flow Fume Cupboards and Class II Biosafety Cabinets: Understanding the Differences

When it comes to choosing between Laminar Flow Fume Cupboards and Class II Biosafety Cabinets, it’s essential to understand the key differences. While Laminar Flow Fume Cupboards lack filtration on the extraction duct and are unsuitable for handling harmful biological materials, Class II B2 biosafety cabinets excel in this area. With their ability to filter particulates before exhausting air into the atmosphere, Class II B2 biosafety cabinets provide superior protection for both personnel and samples.

At The Fume Cupboard Company, we specialize in both cabinet types, ensuring that each range is supported by a team of qualified engineers. Whether you require the precision of a Laminar Flow Fume Cupboard or the enhanced safety features of a Class II Biosafety Cabinet, you can trust The Fume Cupboard Company to provide high-quality solutions tailored to your specific needs.

Unlocking Performance and Cost Efficiency: The Advantages of Laminar Flow Fume Cupboards

Discover the advantages of investing in a Laminar Flow Fume Cupboard. Our cutting-edge products ensure the eradication of cross-contamination, safeguarding both internal and external airstreams. With attributes akin to a miniature cleanroom and ISO5 certification, our cupboards excel in trace metal analysis and contamination testing, prioritizing sample isolation. Additionally, they minimize corrosion risks and lower filter replacement expenses compared to Class II biosafety cabinets.

Laminar Flow Cabinets FAQ

What is laminar flow hood used for?

A laminar flow hood, also known as a laminar flow cabinet or clean bench, is used to provide a controlled and sterile working environment in laboratory settings. It is primarily used for tasks requiring aseptic conditions, such as microbiological research, cell culture, and sample preparation for PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction) amplification. The laminar flow hood ensures that air flows in a consistent and unidirectional manner, minimizing the risk of contamination and maintaining the integrity of samples and experiments.

The principle of a laminar flow hood is based on creating a clean and controlled airflow environment to protect samples and experiments from contamination. It works by drawing air through a HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Air) filter, which removes particles and microorganisms, and then directing this filtered air over the work surface in a laminar, unidirectional flow. This ensures that any airborne contaminants are swept away from the work area, maintaining sterility and integrity of experiments.

The purpose of laminar airflow is to create a clean and controlled environment by directing air in a smooth, uniform flow with minimal turbulence. This airflow pattern is essential for applications requiring sterile conditions, such as laboratories and cleanrooms, as it helps to minimize the risk of contamination and maintain the integrity of sensitive processes and experiments. Laminar airflow ensures that airborne particles and microorganisms are efficiently removed from the workspace, providing a safe and sterile working environment for various applications.

The rules for using a laminar flow hood involve maintaining cleanliness and sterility to ensure optimal performance and prevent contamination. Key guidelines include:

Minimize Movement: Limit unnecessary movements within the hood to prevent disruption of the laminar airflow.

Sterilize Surfaces: Clean and disinfect all surfaces inside the hood before and after use to prevent contamination.

Proper Attire: Wear appropriate personal protective equipment, such as gloves and lab coats, to minimize the introduction of contaminants.

Organized Workspace: Keep the work area tidy and organized to facilitate efficient workflow and prevent accidental contamination.

No Food or Drink: Avoid consuming food or drink inside the hood to prevent contamination of samples and experiments.

By adhering to these rules, users can ensure the effectiveness of the laminar flow hood in maintaining a sterile working environment and protecting sensitive experiments from contamination.
